NICOLÁS RADIC

Nicolás Radic trabaja el óleo sobre tela, desarrollando una obra hiperrealista pictórica que a la vez nos lleva hacia la abstracción. En sus pinturas conviven armónicamente estas dos formas de enfrentar la problemática del motivo. Sus composiciones desvinculan la materialidad de los objetos representados de su forma y así los descontextualiza y aleja de sus funciones habituales, mediante la ausencia total de atmósferas cotidianas y el congelamiento de la imagen que origina. El brillo en sus pinturas se aleja del espacio natural en una exploración de la luz que capta a través de manchas y reflejos como verdaderos centros gravitacionales. 

Trabaja variadas temáticas tales como Celofanes , globos, chatarras, plásticos, espirales y metales siendo la serie de Aluminios la más icónica de su trabajo.  

Radic vive y trabaja en Santiago de Chile, lugar donde lleva casi 20 años pintando rigurosamente. Su finalidad es expandir los límites del motivo realista en la búsqueda del arte contemporáneo.Su obra forma parte de importantes colecciones y ha sido expuesta en contextos latinoamericanos, norteamericanos, europeos y asiáticos como Galería  Marlborough de Barcelona, galería Madre en Santiago y Galería PYO en Seúl. También participa activamente en el circuito de ferias internacionales de arte contemporáneo.

Nicolás Radic works in oil on canvas, developing a pictorial hyper-realistic work that at the same time takes us towards abstraction. In his paintings, these two ways of facing the problem of motif coexist harmoniously. His compositions disassociate the materiality of the objects represented from his form and thus he decontextualizes them and moves them away from their usual functions, through the total absence of everyday atmospheres and the freezing of the image that it originates. The brightness in his paintings moves away from the natural space in an exploration of the light that he captures through spots and reflections as true gravitational centers.

He works on various themes such as cellophanes, balloons, scrap metal, plastics, spirals and metals, the Aluminum series being the most iconic of his work.

Radic lives and works in Santiago de Chile, where he has been painting rigorously for almost 20 years. Its purpose is to expand the limits of the realistic motif in the search for contemporary art. His work is part of important collections and has been exhibited in Latin American, North American, European and Asian contexts such as the Marlborough Gallery in Barcelona, the Madre Gallery in Santiago, and the PYO Gallery in Seoul. He is also actively involved in the international contemporary art fair circuit.
