The Arte Laguna Prize show opened last weekend and it was a wonderful event. In addition to being very well attended, there was a positive energy and a lot of engaging work. My painting “Consolation of Philosophy” held its own and attracted a lot of interest. The show is up until the 9th of April. For more information click here.
Premio Arte Laguna, the international competition and show, will open its 11th edition this Saturday, March 25th. My picture shown above was selected a finalist in the painting section. The opening is open to the public and more information can be found in the link.
The art critic/dealer, Rodrigo Canete interviewed me for his blog LoveArtNotPeople. The above drawing of Dionysus/Bacchus caught his attention and it’s iconography is discussed in depth. Starting a dialogue with Rodrigo has given me a bit more hope about the future of contemporary art. He is intelligent, highly cultivated and sensitive to what is really important about Art. Being an expert on Velasquez can’t hurt either.
His questions were well observed and catalysts for greater discussion. It was a real pleasure doing the interview. Hopefully our dialogue continues! Please check out his blog.
