Sunday Pick: Ignacio Iturria

El Mago, 2013, a/t, 130 x 160 cms (Private Collection, Santo Domingo)

  n.d., oil on canvas, 80 x 70 cm

El Casamiento, n.d. oil on canvas

To look at the bizarre and fantastic paintings of Ignacio Iturria (b. 1949, Uruguay) is to enter his world.  These are the stuff of dreams and occasionally nightmares, based in the reality of blinding light and convincing shadow.  Improbable scenes made possible, as the scale of things are free to slide.
