Guillermo Kuitca: Plates No. 01–24

“There are no highwaymen lurking in Guillermo Kuitca’s recent paintings, though tonal thickets abound. Nor are the references to history that are equally plentiful reminiscent of the appropriation strategies – or, to continue with the metaphor and so stress the aspect of rebel banditry (Salute Comrade Hobsbawm!), expropriation strategies – of the 1980s. Instead, the project in which Kuitca is now engaged seems more a matter of recovering useful fragments of other eras in order to reconstruct painting than of using painting to critique its own heritage from the vantage point of some anticipated future when all its options will have been exhausted.”
– Robert Storr
