Guelfenbein’s (1953) aesthetic is inspired by his nomadic lifestyle, sensibilities and Chilean blood. Dominated by a commanding presence of bold strokes and riveting colors, light refracts strongly on Gulefenbein’s works. The hills and valleys morphed by the thickness of his paint, generate a plethora of emotions; his constantly-changing shape, resembles a joyful cosmic reaction.
He always thinks and creates with his full heart and his ideals have remained the same throughout his career, as has the conceptual base of his works. He has held numerous successful exhibitions around the world; his works evoke a sense of power and trepidation shrouded in the vitality of thickly applied color strokes.
His soulful liquid abstractions and thick acrylic textured canvases, accompanied by a full color palette, reveal a process of discovery of infinite patterns and forms that much resemble a cosmic creation. His patterns may at first seem accidental, but in fact, meticulous color strokes over layers of varnish, deliver a luminescent visual panorama.
His works are busting fluid lines and swirls, depicting patterns that seem to be infinite and create a sense of continuous movement.
