Luciano Goizueta (Costa Rica)
Luciano Goizueta is a multidisciplinary artist based in San José, Costa Rica. Mainly recognized for his paintings, he also works with drawing, photography, assemblage, video and new technologies, looking for ways to interrelate them.
Since he was a child, he has been deeply interested in science and art. The scientific method, with its observations, hypotheses, predictions, experimentations and the analysis of the results, informs and grounds his artistic work.
Since his first exhibition in 2004, Goizueta has approached several themes subdivided into series that he revisits regularly. When these themes are reviewed, the illusion of “return” can be unearthed. In this sense memory, time and everyday life are elements that he uses to reflect about the core aspects of his production: the metadata of images that supports his production.
During his prolific career Goizueta has had more than eighty solo and group exhibitions displayed in galleries, museums, and art fairs within Costa Rica and abroad, among others in Pinta 09 Art Fair (New York), Shanghai Art Fair (China), and SCOPE (Basel, Switzerland). His work has been included in important public and private art collections.
He currently divides his time between his family, his career as a visual artist and the co-director of _temporal, a non-profit artistic space that promotes dialogue and artistic production in the city of San José.
