ARTIST'S STATEMENT
EL PRIMIMODERNISMO OF NOREY AGUDELO "NORIAM"
 

1.a. El PRIMIMODERNISMO

1.a.i. THE ORIGINS

Once I was finalizing my superior studies in Fine Arts at the Institute of Popular Culture in Cali, Colombia in 1975, I was searching about all trends along Art History and understanding the why and how those aesthetic components were important in each stage of the art history, some of those were the Pre-Columbian Art specially. Then, after my researching and making my conclusions, I finally decided to create a new tendency of the Contemporary art that could reunify two moments in history: The first one identifies the expressions from the Primitive art, thru the Pre-Columbian Art, and the second moment identifies those tendencies formed thru the Modernism and Contemporary Art. This aesthetic fusion has its own identity because it is based on the human senses. That is why I categorically denominated this tendency as: "El PRIMIMODERNISMO" since 1980.

1.a.ii CONTENT OF EL PRIMIMODERNISMO - DEFINITIONS

By exploring the basic components of this tendency, we could find an aesthetic parallel of the first stages of the primitive thinking but also the modern thinking which is represented in several real and metaphoric figures that make an understanding of the context of the environment. These impressions of the context appear into the Primimodernist masterpieces combined with elements that surround the human figure as the principal character into the aesthetic scenario. We could also identify faces with primitive features, an interfusion of elements that makes possible the presence of other art tendencies of great diversity like the Pre-Columbian Art thru the tendencies of the Modern and Contemporary art based on abstractionism and surrealism between others.

It's principal characteristic is the human thematic and it's aesthetic configuration corresponds to the category of the POST-MODERNIST tendencies. I conclude that that EL RPIMIMODERNISMO is an expression that rescues the past but also unifies the present. That is why the International Community has opened his mind to assimilate this tendency as a relevant event into the World Wide Universe of Arts.

1.a.iii. THE PRIMIMODERNISMO MANIFESTO:

Number 1. - Responsibility and transparence of the Cultural Heritage.

Number 2.- Recognizing all different art tendencies.

Number 3.- Message of solidarity with all cultures around the world.

Number 4.- Compromising the reconciliation of the Human Rights.

Number 5.- Attention to the equal rights between men and women specially.

Number 6.- Enduring what Peace means among the humankind.

Number 7.- Cultural compromising with people of all nations.

Number 8.- Attention to values of the universal art.

Number 9.- Promoting the principles of El Primimodernismo in the new
generations of artists to keeping it as a legacy.

Number 10.- El Primimodernismo art work has to be exhibited all over the world as a testimony of the excellence of the Latin-American art.
