    About the artist

    (automatic translation)

    The alchemists have always sought the power of the stone of the philosophers, believed that it contains a magic substance that transforms metals basic noble counterparties, mainly gold. As an artist working in precious metals, for a long time I have been fascinated by these processes and beliefs. I am interested in exploring non-traditional formats of Alchemy due to its artistic possibilities and place in contemporary art

    my first inspiration with precious metals derived from my personal heritage that is intimately involved with the Golden pre-Columbian and shamanism. These traditions inspired in me an impulse to create, keep in mind that the brightness of gold conveys a magic and energy fertile humanity.

    My research in both traditions led to the dynamism of the monochrome metal surfaces. The results allow me to encode and translate my work into a new metaphysics of the painted surface and toward a new form of abstraction. This abstraction is interned in the optically perceived phenomena of the pictorial surface. Movements, colors, shapes and ambient light are continuously transformed into eternal moving and captivating images. In fact, these works can blink, inspire, energize and calm for the Viewer.

    Newfoundland works are in private and corporate collections. Its exhibits extends to national and international galleries and museums. Newfoundland is a native of Colombia. He lives and works in New York. It has title and master architect, art and design at Rhode Island School of Design and a degree of architect of the New York Institute of Technology.

    These paintings in gold are part of a series that I started for a period of 10 years. I believe that shining gold and Yes, metals, transmit a magical energy that is transmitted to humanity. The comments of my collectors are works created an aura in their lives and how much you feel the energy emanating from the works. Feel energized, dynamic and the same for the spaces they inhabit. The works complement any space contemporary and sophisticated. Visit my site to see more work on site: www.eduardoterranova.com
