134 ARTIST PROFILE Kico Camacho

Untitled, 2018, 89 x 116 cm

Kico Camacho

P

ainter and sculptor Kico Camacho experiments with contemporary notions of landscape through paint and architectural public interventions, exploring space as a place and also a concept where both matter and void can be embraced. A balance is always at play, where design, thought and materialisation meet the possibilities of unforeseen events which might occur at the site of the work. Camacho’s current paintings, entitled the Delta series, focus on the idea of water as a mirror, both physically and metaphorically. His frenetic abstract canvases are swirled with passages of

blue and aquamarine, like memories of twisting rivers and the land in-between as seen from the sky. Originally from Buenos Aires and now based in Madrid where he settled in the late 80s, Camacho’s painting and sculpture work has been exhibited in group and solo shows in Spain and internationally. Alongside his practice the artist volunteers his time to the Art & Culture without Borders Foundation, running painting workshops with children from underprivileged backgrounds and young women rescued from human trafficking and sexual exploitation. kicocamacho.com kico@kicocamacho.com
