Cristóbal Povedano (Priego de Córdoba, 1933) is a reference of the Spanish Constructivists, a group of geometric artists that included Amador, Waldo Balart, Cruz Novillo, Carlos Evangelista, Feliciano, Tomás García Asensio, Julián Gil, José Luis Gómez Perales, José María Iglesias, Santonja, Soledad Sevilla, Luis Caruncho and Soto Mesa, José María Iglesias, Santonja, Soledad Sevilla, Luis Caruncho and Soto Mesa, who began to work in the early 1970s and whose group identity was attested to in the exhibition of the same name held in 1987 at the Conde Duque Cultural Center in Madrid.
Based in Madrid, his work is dominated by a clear sense of geometry, proportion, number and measure, which he applies with the help of color, line and drawing, both in his pictorial and sculptural works. Her pieces breathe the order and harmony of mathematics, but also of the existing in nature. As Almudena Ros comments in the text of the exhibition catalog:
"Nothing is improvised, he starts from the concrete and derives to the abstract, he makes the complex simple and reaches the viewer through geometric shapes apparently "easy" but that actually enclose and communicate his experiences, his emotions and his knowledge of the world."
The artist has been in search of the essential for decades and now presents it in this solo exhibition at Ansorena.
