CHRISTIAN VINCK: OF THE LEGENDARY DIMENSION OF HISTORY

By Luis Perez-Oramas

Vinck´s work emerged on the venezuelan art scene at the beginning of the new millenium. It came at a particularly critical moment characterized by a profound crisis brought about by the collective failure of a democratic and progressive model that constituted an exception in the authoritarian of the south american nation. this crisis was at once political and fundamentally cultural, and was translated into the exacerbation, in the public arena and through official discourse, of the legendary dimension of history, and exhaustion of modern artistic models, which embodied emancipatory promise of progress during the second half of the 20th century. Within this context, Vinck, a self-taught artist, was bound to a fictitious bdy of lengendary and historical representations that allowed him to produce a frequently  grotesque and caricature-like figuration close to art brut, in which he disseminates hermetic anecdotes regarding a supposedly collective and vernacular memory of Venezuela s past and present.

A profoundly intuitive freedom of painting and drawing is conspicuous and and constitutes one of the most interesting bodies of the artistic work produced in Venezuela in recent years. Vinck s work is linked a constellation of figurations of excess that, by way of fantasy,capriciousness or social and political commentary, marks its presence at the beginning of the new century in Latin America.
