HUGO GOLDGEL

Nací en Buenos Aires en 1950. Dibujo, pinto, hago grabados  y objetos.

Estudié en atelieres dibujo y pintura desde niño y más tarde en la escuela nocturna nocturna. Paralelamente me recibí de maestro de educación elemental  e ingresé a la Universidad de Buenos Aires para estudiar Medicina y Psiquiatría en la Universidad de Buenos Aires. Me especialicé en Psicoanálisis. Incursioné en la fotografía y a partir de 1988 retomé el oficio de pintor lejos de lo “académico”  en los talleres de Silvia Brewda , Carlos Gorriarena,  Jorge Meijide y Roberto Páez a lo largo de doce años.  Gorriarena como pintor y Páez como dibujante con sus enseñanzas y críticas me impulsaron a un cambio de paradigma. Paralelamente aprendí  grabado con Mirta Kupferminc  y Andrea Juan. Participé en los seminarios de crítica de Luis Felipe Noé  entre 2004 y 2009.

He tenido exhibiciones en galerías y museos en Buenos Aires, Chicago, San Francisco, Montreal, Cusco, Montevideo, Paris, Luxembourg, Puerto Rico, and México D.F.  Coleccionistas de arte de Argentina, Estados Unidos, Canadá, Francia, Italia y Luxemburgo.  _

Hugo Goldgel was born in Buenos Aires, Argentina, in 1950. He showed an early interest in drawing and painting, spending  time in artists’ studios up until his adolescence. After a break devoted to the study and practice of psychiatry and psychoanalysis at the University of Buenos Aires, and in which he also developed a passion for photography, in the late 1980s he returned to painting. Distancing himself from academic approaches, he solidified his skills in drawing and painting with Silvia Brewda and Jorge Meijide. He studied engraving with Mirta Kupferminc, continuing his studies with Andrea Juan. He credits Carlos Gorriarena and Roberto Páez for contributing to the dramatic weight he had been seeking for his work. In this way, he became committed to art as a philosophy and life practice. Through his critical workshops, Luis Felipe Noé helped him to consolidate his accomplishments.

He has had exhibitions  in art galleries and museums in Buenos Aires, Chicago, San Francisco, Montreal, Cusco, Montevideo, Paris, Luxembourg, Puerto Rico, and México DF. Art collectors from Argentina, the United States, Canadá, France, Italy and Luxembourg  own his works.

TODOS MIS CAMINOS CONDUCEN A ROMA

Las imágenes me rondan y si puedo las capturo . Soy un cazador atento a su presa, ladrón de imágenes tanto internas como de las provenientes del  mundo exterior. Esa captura incluye gestos como el de quedarme con jirones de un cartel callejero, recortar un fragmento interesante con el objetivo de mi cámara o simplemente guardarlas en mi memoria aprovechando luego la distorsión inexorable del recuerdo.  Así es como afronto el proceso creativo dando pasos sucesivos que abren los imprevistos caminos, no excentos de accidentes, que dan lugar una metamorfosis con la intervención de las técnicas que hagan falta, digitales y manuales : lápiz, carbonilla, acrílico , óleo, pastel. Sentimiento y razón en busca de un equilibrio justo antes de caer en el exceso o el abismo.

Opto por alejarme del ideal de perfección que conduce a lo siniestro. Apelo a la expresión desenfadada para zafar de la opresión cotidiana. Apuesto a la sinergia del encuentro, a la multiplicación de imaginarios junto al expectador….

Hugo Goldgel

ALL MY ROADS LEAD TO ROME

The images pursue me, and if I can, I capture them. I am a hunter attentive to his prey, thief of images as much internal as those coming from the external world. That capturing includes bits of a street poster that stay with me, catching an interesting fragment with the objectivity of my camera or simply keeping them in my head, then taking advantage of the inexorable distortion of memory. That is how I confront the creative process, taking successive steps that open unexpected paths, not exempt from accidents that give room for a metamorphosis, with the intervention of the techniques that are needed, be they digital or manualL pencil, charcoal, acrylics, oils, pastels. Feeling and reason in search of a just equilibrium before falling into excess or the abysm.

I opt to distance myself from from the ideal of perfection that leads to disaster. I appeal to the Uninhibited expression to  escape from everyday life. I bet on the synergy of the meeting, the multiplication of imaginaries together with the viewer.
