Osvaldo González’s works focus on the spaces that we recognise and that he, as an artist, is used to through painting, installations or interventions. Adhesive tape is a material that stimulates and enhances his practice: a common material that assists in the achievement of a transformation from “everyday” to a conveyor of poetic ideas. It’s a material that is particularly available and able to encourage evolution within the work. It was with this material that González realised, using light, he could achieve a chiaroscuro effect. Light is also important: it’s a vehicle for building areas of light and shadow and particularly significant from a conceptual point of view. Making site-specific work is the most complete and all-encompassing experience for González. He approaches it as a meeting point while being aware of how each medium is not limited unto itself. Architecture is often the protagonist. His works in their smaller formats are devoid of human presence, creating a contrast in scale between his larger site-specific installations in which whole rooms and architectural features are encompassed in a by now distinctive warm hue that emanates from the adhesive tape. The visitor to González’s exhibitions often finds him/herself inserted into a new environment created by the artist, where light is a constant participant and adopted as a material in itself by the artist.
