“.wav / 12 paintings for Radio”(a painting exhibition Live from Resonance 104.4 fm, London) by Leonardo Vargas


“.wav / 12 paintings for Radio” (a painting exhibition Live from Resonance 104.4 fm, London) is a Project by former resident Artist Leonardo Vargas and part of a series of other projects proposing a reflection on the notion of Presence in painting (/02-25-11/,  and  Ribba 16″ -a 5-minute painting live from the Van Abbemuseum-).

The idea of painting being an entity that occupies a specific physical space and the concept of presence itself constitute an important part in the painterly discourse. The project aims to reflect on this status of presence in painting and the render of perception that takes place within its dialogue with other systems for information flow.

A series of 12 paintings (executed in traditional media and format) was produced to be later digitally photographed. The resulting 12 images were inserted into a sound software that interpreted the digital data from each picture as sound. This painting series was announced to be only exhibited as sound (3.10 minutes total length) for one and only time on “Wavelength” (a radio program for sound art experiments, concrete poetry, documentary, cultural criticism and reporting) Live from Resonance 104.4fm, London. After their exhibition, the 12 paintings were be archived to remain hidden from the public view.The exhibition was broadcasted on Friday October 5th at 14:30pm (British Summer Time ) on Wavelength, live from Resonance 104.4fm, London, UK. and could also be followed on line:
