The Duality of Black and White in “Inequívoco”

(Las Palmas de Gran Canaria, Spain)

The artists Sandra Cinto and Vânia Mignone take part in the “Inequívoco” exhibition. The showing presents a selection of 16 works belonging to the La Fundación Canaria Para el Desarrollo de La Pintura collection, in Las Palmas de Gran Canaria, Spain. The artworks explore the use of black and white colors in contemporary art, bi-tonality, duality of color and the combination of opposing colors.

From the emptiness symbolized by the black to the conjunction represented by white, the showing unchains itself like a fusion of lyricism with a ton of color. The sensation based on the chromatic scale always reflects something different. Bringing together the diversity of the characteristics that make up contemporary art, the exhibition invites us to look at the pure beauty of its´ pieces through their purely neutral colors.

White and black have their own meaning, and their combination may come to reflect the truth, the absolute, the unequivocal, and provoke a strong psychological effect. Today, black and white may seem nothing more than anachronistic, but today, even more so due to our current image and technology era, we better not forget that the arts originated from these two colors.
