donner-200Diego Donner (Montevideo, 1959-) is a materials painter, a painter's painter in the purest sense. While symbols and objects characterize much of his otherwise abstract work, Donner's work seems to emit unconscious spiritual underpinnings. Working primarily in the somber earthy tones so popular in the southern cone, the work is texturally organic, pure, and speaks to viewers on various planes even though he clearly defines a 2D space. Excellent work, Donner has exhibited widely both locally and internationally ever since his early days in the Nelson Ramos studio.
