Press Release

Galerie Gilla Loercher is very happy to announce the solo show of Chilean artist Gonzalo Reyes Araos.
Working in a multidisciplinary approach, Gonzalo Reyes Araos' practice focuses contemporary forms of communication that have conditioned and redefined human relationships.
"I use elements borrowed from the everyday means of communication - screens, video conference devices - in order to share natural events “broadcasted” through long distances, thus generating parallel and ubiquitous dimensions amplifying the relationships we maintain with spiritual experiences through the technology." (Gonzalo Reyes Araos)

Red Green Blue
The RGB color model is an additive color model in which red, green and blue light are added together in various ways to reproduce a broad array of colors. The name of the model comes from the initials of the three additive primary colors, red, green, and blue.
The main purpose of the RGB color model is for the sensing, representation and display of images in electronic systems, such as televisions and computers, though it has also been used in conventional photography. Before the electronic age, the RGB color model already had a solid theory behind it, based in human perception of colors. (Wikipedia)
RGB + #FFFFFF and RGB + #000000 are a series of RGB painting in which there is a filter of white and black colors.
The numbers #FFFFFF indicate the hexadecimal code of a color in the programming language, in which #FFFFFF indicate the white color and #000000 the black color.
The process giving rise to these paintings seeks to analogize algorithms composing images in LCD screens, thus creating a parallel between a physical and a digital language. The works are composed of red, green and blue colors (the three colors constituting the pixels that structure screens), thereby approaching the Additive color theory (light) by “physical” pigments.
The layout is organized in a raster*, in which the pixels will compose the structure of the works. The composition is created by technical accidents or “glitches” occurring during the process of “transmission of information”. Some “bits” of papers fall, unglued from the support resulting in a random lack of data, which is supplanted by the background, creating new colors and flecks of information on a monochromatic (or three-chromatic) surface. (Gonzalo Reyes Araos)
(*) Raster is a rectangular pattern of parallel scanning lines followed by the electron beam on a television screen or computer monitor.
