'Al límite de la ruptura' (On the verge of rupture) is an exhibition that includes the finalists of the Plastic Arts Award 2022 together with the artworks recently incorporated in the Norte Collection, acquired by the Government of Cantabria during the last edition of ArteSantander Fair.
The seventeen artists participating in the exhibition include Elena Mendizábal, Juana González, Tomás Pizá García and Laura López Balza. Painting predominates as a medium selected to express by the majority of the participants in the Award, while the works acquired from the Cantabrian galleries contribute with other formats such as  sculpture and oil on photography.

That instant when the crease becomes a wrinkle when flexibility gives way to tearing or the last drop overflows the glass.
The creative process is marked by the work and control of technique, but also by the sense of discovery, the eureka moment or the decisive decision in the search to push the limits.
Unlike historical and academic organisation, contemporary creation develops in the fluidity between disciplines, questioning classical formats and compositions in order not to stick to the marked contours. What unites the artist and the outsider is not the forms but their limits, where dialogues, conquests and mistakes take place.
The common ground of these twenty-three artworks is that limit. What differentiates them are the forces, traces and decisions that make up the plastic research and the artistic career of their authors. "Al límite de la ruptura" is a radiography of this frontier along which the artistic scene in Cantabria is moving today.
