Artist Statement

Riveiro is an artist who pulls his strength from a crossing of cultures and of times.

In his paintings and drawing, he doesn’t limit himself to a single territory. He unfolds a subtle game within the space of the picture where spot, line and color tie in together.

The games of superimpositions and associations that he practices lead to a multi focal space at the edge of a landscape or a tale that comes together or unravels to the will of the eye. Within the interlacing of the lines, succession of grids comes into place to deepen the space of the picture.

Lines and spots come to do or undo contours. In some way colors will incarnate, embody shapes that give themselves a sort of apparition of shapes, and ghostly figures.

The essence of his drawing is in the play with the subtle interaction between the stroke and the spot. This network weaves to the whim of the hand's or the thought's inflexions. It digs furrows, meanders on the sheet of paper or splits it until it all takes shape. Until what could be the outline or the echo of a scene in a story without words or a narrative. But it can as easily take it all back. And fold back onto undulating or broken rhythms of a stroke that invades the surface with its movements and its discordances whether they are voluntary or accepted.
That's what creates the appeal of those drawings for the one who is contemplating them. They bring out a simultaneous feeling of familiarity and strangeness: like a landscape or a scene that might have been deleted by time's wear and tear, or on the contrary, sealed within a labyrinth of lines that seem to offer themselves to our gaze to better foil and deceive that temptation to tie them to a possible reality.

Philippe Cyroulnik.
