Nudes red Garden by Antonio Guerrero

“Pluralism” according to Danto’reply to Yhhui Park in Auxier’s Arthur C. Danto of Library of Living Philosophers volume (Auxier-Danto 2013), means the main essential definition in the tendency of our current contemporary definition of art when facing proxy Shangai International Art Fair . Therefore “pluralism” is what is reveal in this Guerrero’artwork. “Pluralism” according to Danto’reply to Yhhui Park in Auxier’s Arthur C.

While believe in art, Guerrero’s aesthetics goes away ascetic ideal of Modernity in his own pictorial concept of art toward Post-Modern art. Its main concern goes beyond representation alone since Guerrero keeps in the art process of Nude Red Garden “meaning” as the main necessary condition of art according to Danto’s seminal essay “Artworld”(1964). It is “aboutness” another underlying definition in which object and meaning oriented is the business of essentiality of art. “Aboutness” is the explicit and implicit intentions toward essence of art is directed to object what is occur in all Guerrero’s artworks.

After carefully contemplating “Nudes Red Garden” we find this Guerrero’s artpiece to be easily conceived as a paradigmatic icon of intrinsicallity and intentionality.

Multiple references combined in “Nudes Red Garden” reconciling diversity in a widely spectrum of forms, shapes, colorful, and content sequences maximizing multicultural references (e.g. “New World” Amazonic non-Western tribal animism, Hybrid folkloric subcultures, Eastern traditions, and so forth) reported by structural ethnographic school of Levi-Strauss, Malinowski’s functionalism and James Frazer’s The Golden Bough.

Guerrero reinterprets eroticism through history of art. He goes through Bosco’s famous tablaux Garden of Earthly Delights to reencounter with African iconicity he met when younger in his Sudanian and Ethiopian journey. That experience marked him and in certain way feed his current indagation what “Nudes Red Garden” shows. Guerrero reinterprets eroticism through history of art.

What would be experience of sublime when facing this Guerrero’s artwork: ultimately the transformation of self and world. As a consequence we, artviewers, transform ourselves positively and in turn we transform our surrounding world positively, constructively, and progressive as well. That means where both, implicit and explicit values of “Nudes Red Garden” are beyond their ontological status of art, which is being asthetically defined.

What “Nudes Red Garden” reveals is the interconnection between ourselves experience and world experience, both assimilated altogether where we will find no difference at all. We become self-world entities in which art happens. Guerrero’s mission aesthetics consolidates a solely unique entity between ourselves and other selves.

Self and the Other as a main philosophical problem characterizes this multi representational artwork and indivisible iconic narrative where red colorful background makes “Nudes Red Garden” an Self and the Other as a main philosophical problem characterizes this multi representational artwork and indivisible iconic narrative where red colorful background makes “Nudes Red Garden” an “open work”.

Color is reinterpreted, and overinterpreted, after exhausted all posible pathways meaning. In sum, this Guerrero masterpiece of animistic Post-Modern eroticism actualized in the worldwidely framework of cultural Globalization is to be seen as a whole, interpreted as a mythical thought, and felt as the Other’s space. “open work”.
