Cristina Garrido at Thyssen-Bornemisza Art Contemporary

El color local es un invento extranjero (París), by Cristina Garrido, is part of the Thyssen-Bornemisza Art Contemporary (TBA21) collection.

This piece belongs to a series of photographic prints in which the artist departed from the well-known phrase of the writer Jorge Luis Borges, Local colour is a foreign invention, to question whether it is possible to find out the local color of certain specific geographical areas. For this, she has looked at how artists from different eras have depicted the sky in painting, from the 17th century to the present.
