About the artists:
Iris Pérez is an interdisciplinary artist who has explored painting, drawing, sculpture, ceramics, installation and performance. For this show she has chosen several pieces from the series “The Roads of Being” and “Anatomy of Being”, which refer to a cardinal trinomial: Being-nature-life.
Miguel Ramírez invites us to a contemplative and interpretative journey, through his work. Ramírez involves the observer in his processes that include drawing, painting, installation and art-object. Through his drawings, he draws traces of poetry as an inexhaustible source of thought.
The work of José Almonte invites us to travel through the codes that constitute the symbolic identity of his work. For this show the artist has chosen some pieces from the series “The House of Annie Paola”, a study on the problems posed by adolescence. A work that leads to a real and necessary catharsis from the retrospective analysis to the external view.
Orlando López shows us an x-ray of his interior through the works he chosen for this exhibition. He express the ecstasy that represents freedom. His vision of the reality that surrounds him from a world created and seen without formalism or stereotypes.
José Levy constructs his work on an ironic language of social and anthropological content. This artist tells us his experiences through art using humor and satire as records of his memory.
