TURN Gallery presents AquÍ y Ahora, Fernando Pintado's first solo exhiition in New York. Collaged and Recycled, Pintado economically merges his materials of newspaper, canvas and faric down to a realm of heroic ordinariness. By sifting through music, poetry, theatre, literature and mythology, each single frame finds references which allude, adapt and bend into parallel personal experiences.
The impossible is on the horizon.
The intangible is scratching
The cups on the tablecloth
The spilled rain
No better place than being with you
I want to be among your things
Search your book of secrets of the sea
waiting for a kiss in the rain
with syllables and consonants
Hair is somewhere, voice is elsewhere
You are not a ghost...
You can have it all
There will never be a better time
- Fernando Pintado
