Guillermo Lorca: The Eternal Life is a selection of the work of the last seven years of the renowned Chilean artist Guillermo Lorca. With an Introduction by the acclaimed art historian and critic Edward Lucie-Smith, this book introduces us to the world of Lorca’s disturbing yet poetic oil paintings. In his art there is always a disconcerting person at work, as if they could be part of our most secret our dreams and nightmares. We leave these magical, discomfiting landscapes, reflecting on the realism of the artist’s favourite characters, mostly animals and girls, as we act as a window to our unconscious. The book features many close-ups of the paintings, enabling us to appreciate Lorca’s techniques and the scale of the life size art. Guillermo Lorca brings us closer to the aesthetics of the abundant and opulent, the sensual and the tradition of painting. The works that compile this book make painting a window to observe the human psyche and the projection of nature.
