Guillermo Lorca

The Eternal Life

With an Introduction by Edward Lucie-Smith
Guillermo Lorca: The Eternal Life is a selection of the work of the last seven years of the renowned Chilean artist Guillermo Lorca. With an introduction by the acclaimed art historian and critic Edward Lucie-Smith, this book introduces us to the work of one of the finest contemporary artists in Chile.

Lorca’s disturbing, poetic oil paintings blend Surrealism with the Spanish Baroque. Characterized by realist art composed of Baroque scenes, his paintings evoke great painters of the past, including Rembrandt, Velázquez, and Caravaggio, and the aesthetics of abundance, opulence, and sensuality exemplified in the Baroque tradition. Lorca places his characters, mostly animals and girls, in magical, discomfiting settings, combining the human psyche with a projection of nature in an effort to create a window into the unconscious mind. His work—ambitious, erotic, poetic, and disconcerting—challenges our expectations about what society is and does. 

With more than one hundred color images, including many close-ups of Lorca’s paintings, readers can explore his techniques and appreciate the scale of his life-sized art. Guillermo Lorca: The Eternal Life allows readers to enter Lorca’s world of fantasy and magical realism and take an intimate look at the work of a rising star in contemporary art.
