In recent years I have seen various examples of landscapes, which leads me to consider whether within many kinds of disorders that exist today in the artistic spectrum, this is not a sign of return to the illuminations that shone before the path of so many artists in the world. There is no doubt in the case of Guillermo Bekes. From almost his first appearances have followed their growth, said as if he had referred to the process of a seed transformed into an infinite garden plant. Because that is what the nature: a universe in which the images multiply and suffer mutations accompanying the rhythm of life in a deeper sense,. And there I can see in Bekes that stroke than from those former ways tightest by wanting to be more real, now travels the essence of which consists the true natural invisibility. As the French writer Alain said in his twenty lessons on fine arts: the jardinero-pintor is due to nature without imitating it. Three are in the works that introduces Bekes, defined themes.

Which grouped villages, with surrounding populated by features figures which can be rural or simply animals, in particular horses characters. There arises that typical landscape that can be I glimpsed of the pampas or of some places of the province of Buenos Aires or the Argentine countryside in general, with their characteristic ridges, trees scattered in mountains dotted with plain and natural pasture. In several pictures matter factor weighs and supports on the base image that outlines the horizon or grouping these clouds sometimes deployed harmonically in the firmament. For me the landscape that best sums up what Guillermo Bekes manages in his canvases is open field; There is plain, the houses, grass, trees, complete amalgam which shows the environment of the inhabitant of the field. An assimilation that estimates the contemplative rustic serenity of nature, with its airspace. It also works with paths as protagonists, establishing a dialogue between foliage and the simplicity terrain, open like a wound in the sinuosity of the broad green spectrum.

And finally water, with stunning River and its equidistant reflexes, predominant voice that incorporates a boat as a silent character of that other aqueous reality that crosses the marshes. Everything exists in this virtuous pictorial realization that the artist gets through a close relationship with the world that lives and conveys a visual communication that holds his personal interpretation of the campestre reality. Bekes has managed to delve into that spirit of shadows, lines, colors and other sensitive elements forming the Argentine pampas soil landscapes. Although currently it also ventures by other lands such as the Spanish, where coexist so many visions that they will feed their own genuine and renewed vision in the future.
