Associate Professor of Art History Stephen J. Goldberg recently published an article in Faro de Vigo, the oldest Spanish newspaper in circulation. “Variaciones cromáticas: el arte tectónico de Lafuente,” is about the work of the Clinton-based artist and architect Fernando Lafuente. Publication was in conjunction with “Reconstrucciones,” an exhibition of Lafuente’s work in Pontevedra, Galicia, Spain.
In the article, Goldberg demonstrates that Lafuente’s recent works of art are elegant, chromatic-tectonic constructions that draw on his training and practice as an architect and an artist.
Goldberg said the combination of these sensibilities — one pictorial, one architectonic — has enabled Lafuente to realize new and complex orders of visual art, that could only have been conceived with a knowledge of and facility with the creative resources of both disciplines.
The article was translated into Spanish by Professor of Hispanic Studies Joana Sabadell-Nieto.
