LA OBRA COMO LUGAR
Through large-format works, Aythamy Armas evidences his incessant search for the vindication of the stroke as the leitmotiv of his artistic work. Stripping the drawing of the canons of traditional representation, Armas creates awareness in the viewer of the relevance of the physical and expressive elements that occur at the time of the execution of the work. He values the physical act of pictorial language: the stroke, the stain, the texture, the light, and the shadow.
