Born in Santiago, Chile, in 1953, Eduardog has kept a psychological tie to his country of origin whose nomadic nature tends to accentuate. Eduardog is part of this diaspora who keep in their souls the anxieties and fears of their national experience. But they also keep the irresistible contamination of joy and delirious colors. The same that the collective unconsciousness vehicles like some protest banner.
From the very beginning Eduardog manifested his attachment to the chaotic universe of tropical atmosphere. Indeed, he materializes some mass movements where the individual is overwhelmed by a devouring human wave. He has today emancipated himself from the necessity of representation. In fact, he now follows a pictorial evolution in his gesture and colour. All that remains is the movement of the paint and the explosion of color. The texture is supported by a creamy almost edible matter. The artist executes, with the rhythmic variations of his art. In the primary colours he has always preferred, a gestural acceleration free from all figural contingencies. His painting materialises pure form and the creative force in action. They expressing the renewal of the themes and sources of inspiration that have always concerned him.
Dancing is something he has often represented as symbolic of a culture close to his heart and is now inscribed in the paint itself. For him, the accomplishment of a painting is not the result of an iconoclastic desire of Mathieu or the liberty of vindication for Pollock. Eduardog gestural painting inscribes itself in a particular movement of artistic conception where the aesthetic, almost classic characteristic was the idea of pleasure in the work, as in the voluptuousness of Matisse in Joie de vivre.
