"Eduardo Strauch, Uruguayan painter and architect, and survivor of the famous 1972 Andes plane crash, began his creative vocation at a young age. When he began his studies in architecture, he succeeded in joining – in the way of great contemporary architects – his penchant for constructing together with the beauty of the natural landscape.
Today, after an extended journey in that discipline, he has fulfilled the need within himself to go into painting as another of his activities – his passions – as a way to expand his expressive repertoire.
In his recent paintings can be seen an attempt to reconcile opposites. His architectural aspiration of serene structural composition plays dialectically with diagonal lines which traverse the entire surface. In this way he creates a climate strange and mysterious, disquieting, which one can imagine is a product of his particular personal experience.
That experience, of trying to escape the uncertainty, cold, and fear, he sets himself to observe in a single scene as expressive as it is overwhelming, the immensity of the mountain and of its beauty.
Welcome to the fruits of his labor, a sublime experience and way of viewing the world. "
