Edwin García is a Venezuelan artist, based in Argentina. In his academic training he has studied visual arts, education and museology. As a visual artist, he has been trained in the area of graphic arts, a field in which he has technically developed traditional and contemporary engraving to make his artistic compositions, using procedures such as xylography, dry point, lithography, collagraphy, photolithography and mokulito (novel procedure, which combines the chemical principles of traditional lithography with xylography), taking advantage of these procedures for their expressive and reproduction possibilities.

The theme of this series, Devenir, “addresses the perception of the landscape through the ephemeral and elusive of memory and the passage of time and how the latter alters the appearances of things in the environment that we know as the ‘real’ or objective world, in continuous connection with the emotional dimension with which it is seen”, explains García.

His visual discourse, formally and conceptually, we could say that it is close to the minimalist trend, since he operates with an economy of language, of expressive resources, and reduction of forms, almost to the essential, that allow him to metaphorize his idea related with “the fragmented and unfinished, of a place that is changing and that never ends being”. Hence, we see in his minimalist graphics diffuse, blurred images, in empty spaces, barely outlined by lines, stains, lights and shadows, where from the chromatic point of view black, gray and white predominate. By reducing the excesses of the landscape and the elements of visual expression, this artist manages to awaken in the viewer an aesthetic emotion of calm, tranquility, and sublimity.
