Ana Pérez Ventura: "Tourner la page".


In this exhibition by Ana Pérez Ventura we can see unpublished pieces from two series she has been working on for years, in which she uses two opposing processes: on the one hand, the addition of paint in the multiple layers of the Études, and, on the other, the subtraction based on the perforations of the wood in the Notages. his exhibition also includes her first work in volume from this series, Tourner la page. It is a work inspired by the "accordions" of sheet music that pianists build to place all the pages spread out on the music stand and thus avoid having to pass them while playing.

Gloría García Lorca: "Ardora".

The title of the exhibition comes from a bioluminescence phenomenon called Sea of Ardora by which the water of the sea glows in the dark with the breaking of the waves or any other type of movement. In Galicia it can be seen more easily between late August and September, when winds and heat favor the phenomenon, the artist saw it for the first and only time last summer on the beach of Corrubedo. Inspired by this phenomenon, Gloria García Lorca presents ten pieces painted on cotton canvas with acrylic paint and a ceramic piece made of refractory clay and enamel.

Din Matamoro: "The weight of light".

According to Din Matamoro "Painting is a matter of superimpositions and layers, of color on color, of tones, of shades, of transparencies and lights that we sometimes understand when we look at it from the side. Let's not forget that painting is a physical act because it works with matter, a matter that can be light or an extension of colored light, or light that is matter. All these things are in the air, in the gaze that lights up, in the brain, and levitate in the exhibition space, in the uncertainty of our time."
