Ciudad Automática (Automatic City) is the creation of the artist Josie Watson that will be officially exhibited for the first time in the city of Buenos Aires in the three floored gallery of the British Arts Center (BAC). The series of paintings was inspired in 2008 by the question about her father’s decision to return to live in Argentina, when he was only 17, in view of the possibility of having chosen Syndey and its (very different) quality of life.
Ciudad Automática expresses the experiences that the artist went through in her youth in this chaotic city, at times unintelligible, at times revealing. Chaos and realization are uniquely captured in works where hyperrealism and her graphic style are twinned with an irresistible tension.
July 10th to 31st at the British Art Center (BAC) of the AACI (Argentine Association of English Culture) in Suipacha 1333
