Synopsis

In his essay in the catalogue for the exhibition Teresa Gabaldón. Dibujos at the Galería Minotauro in Caracas (November, 1985), the curator William Niño Araque reviews the Venezuelan artist and teacher’s work. He introduces the reader to the conceptual underpinnings of these drawings that explore the idea of intimacy associated with feelings of loneliness.

Annotations

Teresa Gabaldón was one of a group of young artists who, in the 1970s, sought to reinstate drawing as an art form in Venezuela. This experience led to Teresa Gabaldón. Dibujos, her 1985 exhibition of drawings in which she explored connections between her artistic interests and her inner world. The architect and curator William Niño Araque speaks in metaphorical terms as he discusses (subjectively but accurately) the component parts of the artistic language used on this occasion by the Venezuelan artist and teacher. His goal is to describe it and provide viewers with a guide to understanding her work. He salutes Gabaldón for addressing an ordinary subject that is difficult to acknowledge because it involves exposing the inner world at the heart of one’s identity.
