Cristina de Castro: Fuerzas que surgen

La pintora colombiana plantea una renovación de los valores abstractos.

+ Carlos Fernando Quintero V.
Carlos Fernando Quintero V. es un historiador de arte y artista.

Hace exactamente un siglo, en 1911, se concretaba uno de los proyectos artísticos más ambiciosos y significativos del siglo XX. Conocido como El Jinete Azul (Der BlaueReiter en Alemán), el proyecto reunía, entre otros artistas, a sus creadores (Wassily Kandinsky y Franz Marc) y a artistas radicados en Berlín como August Macke, Gabriele Münter, Alexei von Jawlensky y Marianne von Kefferin y Paul Klee. Fue el inicio de lo que hoy llamamos Arte Abstracto, que ha tenido una evolución interesante y vertiginosa a lo largo de este siglo.

Cien años después, Cristina De Castro parece retomar la senda fructífera de los artistas europeos, renovando sus premisas creadoras y conceptuales. La coherente continuación con su serie de pinturas inmediatamente anterior (“Volcanes”), “Fuerzas que surgen” plantea una renovación de los valores abstractos. Aquí, el color toma un papel relevante. Más que tener una significación especial, De Castro traduce sus emociones en valores cromáticos, en donde los colores primarios saltan a la vista. Además, las obras muestran trazos fuertes y decididos que realzan los valores cromáticos y fortalecen la voluntad expresiva de la artista.

Consecuente con el renacer después de la catástrofe, “Fuerzas que surgen” nos plantea un renacer que en primer momento es artístico y pictórico, pero que además se puede relacionar con la situación geopolítica actual, haciendo eco de los aires de cambio que afectan Medio Oriente, Europa y América. Sin ser necesariamente política, las pinturas de De Castro aluden a las emociones y sensaciones del momento actual, de una manera positiva y esperanzadora; no nos muestran el momento violento y catastrófico. Sus obras se ubican en un momento después de lo que se puede considerar catástrofe. Nos muestran fuerzas vitales que confluyen en la recomposición del universo, desde el encuentro con lo natural. Se establecen así como elementos reconstitutivos y hasta medicinales.

De Castro nos ofrece así una serie sólida y contundente de pinturas que con títulos sugestivos como “Evolución”, “Soplan nuevos vientos”, “Contrastes y contrapuntos” o “Cálida Tarde”, nos plantea espacios de reflexión, paz y esperanza en medio de los conflictos constantes y continuos de nuestra cotidianidad o del mundo actual. Esperanza, paz y reflexión que son a la vez necesarias y premonitorias, como un deseo positivo para el futuro inmediato y próspero.
