José Horacio Martínez

"Río Arríba"


 

Gallery

May 9 - June 30, 2018

 

Martinez's paintings become maps that tell us about the powerful and contradictory relationship of the individual and his or her environment. A tragic relationship in permanent movement where love and death take center stage instead of a painful and rigid relationship where supposedly there is no time to think about a future, where dispossession and resigned acceptance are a constant which leads us to look at ourselves as mute participants of a representation of our condition as fated to have a sad and painful end.

Gabriel SILVA

"Cosmografías"


 

2nd Floor Gallery

Mayo 9 a Junio 30 de 2018

 

The works of multifaceted artist Gabriel Silva reveal universes that emerge from his imagination, recollections, of the remnants of memory, of everything he has lived and experienced. In Cosmografías [Cosmographies], the artist paints a map of dreamlike worlds, in which he recreates atmospheres and spaces with a palette in a wide variety of colors. There are no photographs, there is no specific reference but rather the constant memory of THE DESCRIPTION OF EGYPT, by Piero de la Francesa, by Ucello, science fiction, Neo Rauch, the cinema and traveling painters of the 17th and 19th centuries, among many others, where the landscape is the subject and it is also the excuse.

Dalita NAVARRO

"Viaje al corazón de la arcilla"


 

Space Project

May 9 - June 30, 2018

 

Ceramist Dalita Navarro confesses that she wants to go back to basics, to the most primitive, simple and true of shapes such as that of a bowl, or the forms or vessels that keep her memories. Bowls can hold both sweetness and bitterness, and can quench thirst and give meaning. These cardial pieces, millenary in their memories of centuries, of years, of days, of hours-, always have the shape of the heart, rescued by Dalita’s hands from the depth of feelings, of sorrows and joys; of the subtle engravings of the tender skin of clay and its expressive heart shapes.   From time immemorial, beings with a memory have felt the beats of their hearts and gave them different names over the centuries. The Greeks gave them the name kardia, which in Spanish means heart. This exhibition is about the pains of the earth, of the sky and of the sea; the passions arising from the heart and its essential helpers; the same as the diseases they cause and the clay that expresses them; of hopes and desolations; of the devastations and the joys flowing from that spring. In it the echoes of sad songs like " dónde estás corazón, / no oigo tu palpitar”; “soy enterrador/ y vengo/ de enterrar mi corazón." Or the song of exile, "cuando salí de Cuba/ dejé enterrado mi corazón.”
