Summary note:
Homage edition tdedicated to the fundamental artificer of the birth of geometric abstract art in Uruguay, concrete art and non-figurative painter, sculptor and art critic Maria Freire (b. Uruguay 1917-2015). In 1952 she married painter José Pedro Costigliolo and both founded the Grupo de Arte No Figurativo. When we set out to make an exhibition of María Freire, we thought in an exhibition homage for her (recently deceased) as an Uruguayan artist, painter, sculptor, engraver, teacher and art critic; a women ahead of her time for our country, closely related to an artistic language that was developed in the 20th century and which had in her, one of Uruguayœs greatest figures. We were inspired by the idea of having the public attracted to abstract art from her historic context, and through a woman representative.ʺ (HKB Translation)--Page 8.
