Jorge Macchi makes drawings, sculptures, collages and installations and is unsurpassed at understanding the art of achieving maximum emotionality with minimal form. By making abundant use of a reduced, ephemeral visual language and everyday materials, his work appears to resemble conceptual art. And yet it also generally contains a condensed, romantic emotionality, which seems almost baroque. Through this combination, Macchi lays bare the emotional spheres that do not generally emerge in our everyday observation of reality, or even remain hidden.
