Born in Guatemala in 1933, Rodolfo Abularach is one of Latin America’s most distinguished artists. Abularach is best known for his works from the mid 1960’s that feature dramatic close-ups of the human eye. For some two decades he continued meticulously to explore the psychological and spiritual states of being inherent in the symbol of the “Eye”. This haunting work - often with titles alluding to ancient Greek mythology as well as literature – reveal a thoughtful, well-educated artist probing the mysteries of the psyche.
