ARTIUM Gallery is proud to present Serendipity a two person exhibition by Cuban artists Natasha Perdomo and Rafael López-Ramos, who celebrate this year the 20th anniversary of their first show together in Vancouver, Canada (March) and their wedding there few months latter (October, 1997).
Natasha expresses her inner world from a mystical point of view, through stunning landscapes tangentially inspired on Symbolism and Neo-romanticism, as a contemporary artist who faces a social and emotional context similar to the one that moved the old masters to create their impressive artworks. Her painting focuses on nature to subtly reflect on our chaotic times and will be displayed along several wall sculptures, which will give us a glimpse of her creative work as a silversmith too.
Rafael works gather different elements that have emblematized Cuba throughout its history: realistic renderings of tropical fruits paraphrasing the gaze of Cuban colonial Painting, the Revolution’s propaganda iconography, and the syncretism of Afro-Cuban religious symbols and Catholic images. It all is mixed with typical Americana popular culture characters, and esoteric symbols related to the American political tradition, in a carnivalsque cocktail of dissimilar narratives. His show includes paintings, collages and found-object artifacts.
VIP opening reception: Thursday February 9th, from 6:00 to 9:00 pm
(Exhibition runs from February 9th through March 7th, 2017)
