Rosendo Cid

Rosendo Cid Ourense,
We could say that there is nothing more abstract than the attempt to define what abstraction is; because abstraction is not something we are given to understand, but something we are given to perceive. Abstraction is an idea which, moreover, does not cease to feed on itself, at the same time as it combines with our particular gazes, so that its assimilation is more related to a kind of poetic significations, always changing and dynamic.
Since his beginnings, Rosendo Cid has worked indistinctly with sculpture, photography, collage, drawing or textual practice, combining them in many of his exhibitions and projects, so that his narratives vary from the most poetic to some of a more critical nature or those that reflect on the artistic process or the idea of the sketch.
His working method is nourished by constant tests, as if it were a diary, from which some of his series emerge, which he always keeps open. His work tells us that every object or image can be transformed into another reality, thus showing the different ways of understanding, of being and of situating oneself before the world and before art.
Rosendo holds a degree in Fine Arts from the University of Vigo, specialising in sculpture, and a PhD in Artistic Production from UVigo. Among his selection of solo exhibitions we can find "Fragmentos de una obra inacabada", Santiago de Compostela; "Todo aquello que sucede y sin embargo no es", Museo MARCO de Vigo, curated by Miguel Fernández-Cid and Pilar Souto; 2018 "La duda es el único estado posible", Galería Nordés; 2017 "Fe de erratas" at the Fundación RAC, Pontevedra or in 2014 "El ingenio de la escalera" at the CGAC in Santiago de Compostela.
His latest group exhibitions include: "Los blancos secretos de su panza" at the Museo Centro Gaias de la Cidade da Cultura in Santiago de Compostela, curated by Bea Espejo, based on a selection from the RAC Foundation Collection.
His work is part of collections such as: CGAC, RAC Foundation, Eugenio Granell Foundation, MICA Collection, Litonor Collection, Campus of Ourense, Marcos Varcácel Cultural Centre, Municipal Museum of Ourense and private collections.
