Cristian Roy María Mac Entyre
Cristian Roy María Mac Entyre was born on July 3, 1967 in the “porteño” neighbourhood of Barracas, Buenos Aires, Argentina. Strongly inclined to music from a very early age, he learnt to play the guitar and the cello, which would leave a decisive mark on his work.
He has turned the guitar into a sort of muse, such instrument being one of the main protagonists of his work in accordance with his love of music. The guitar gives way to a visual sonority in a harmonious, perfect combination of colours-sounds, spaces-silences, shapes-tunes that come together in a unifying visual art of ambivalent meaning: colours and shapes have tunes, making his paintings visual melodies and taking them from abstraction to constructivism and from geometry to collages made with real guitar pieces.
Every guitar is a sort of peephole through which the spectator sees other music and a melody that will finally be completed by themselves.
