EXHIBITIONS / Óscar Domínguez: An Existence of Paper

25 February, 2011 - 16 October, 2011
Tenerife Espacio de las Artes, Santa Cruz de Tenerife
Isidro Hernández Gutiérrez

While not ignoring the paintings, objects and decalcomanias of Óscar Domínguez, this exhibition focused on the Canary-Island-born artist’s activity in the field of drawing and illustration, one of his relatively more obscure creative facets. The starting point of the exhibition were the illustrations made by Domínguez for editions of the magazine Gaceta de Arte in the early thirties, a period in which he also designed the covers of iconic books on surrealism in Tenerife such as Romanticismo y cuenta nueva (1933), by Emeterio Gutiérrez Albelo, and Crimen (1934), by Agustín Espinosa. Living in Paris at a later date, Domínguez would produce drawings for works by Georges Hugnet, André Breton, Christian Dotremont, Laurence Iché, Robert Ganzo and Paul Éluard, among many others.
