As director of the Centro Cultural Ricardo Rojas during the 1990s, Gumier Maier was one of the key promoters of the “Arte Light” movement that replaced the angst-ridden and politically charged work of the 1980s with a new taste for the showy and irreverent. He uses curvilinear forms to produce an ironic commentary on art history, particularly the tension between the serious, so-called masculine aspirations of geometrical abstraction and the “effeminate” arabesques of the Baroque.
