1957 - Montevideo, Uruguay

Lives and works in Geneva, Switzerland

 

Daniel Orson Ybarra began traveling around the world until settling in Geneva (1984), where he directs the Abanico Foundation. Memory, the apparent and the paradox, the transparent, the vegetal, the water, the light, the illuminations and the synchronicities are part of his plastic and writing reflections. The series presented in his exhibitions are part of a process of pictorial experiences and an exercise in observation within this fragment of landscape.

 

Collections holding his works include: IVAM - Institut Valencià d'Art Modern, Spain; Centre d’Art Contemporain de Lacoux, France; MAPRA. Lyon, France; Musée de la Main. Fondation Claude Verdan. Lausanne, Switzerland; Banque Heritage, Zúrich, Switzerland; Centre d’Art Contemporain d’Amerindia. Le Flon, Lausanne, Switzerland; FAE, Fondation Asher Edelmann. Lausanne , Switzerland; Fondation Abanico. Ginebra, Switzerland; Fondation Bodmer. Ginebra, Switzerland; Fundación Frax, Alfàs del Pi, Alicante, Spain, and among others.

 

Orson has attended a residency program at Zielinsky_Lab, El Maresme, in Barcelona, Spain.
