Two exhibits at Galería O.M.O

By Jim Corcoran

Lucas Rise

On a recent visit to the studio of Lucas Rise, I immediately realized this is a young man who is totally obsessed by his passion for art. Over the years he has excelled in graphic design, drawing, painting, photography and more. This is evidenced in the many awards bestowed on him.

His background is probably best told in his own words “I’m the product of an Austrian-Italian immigrant generation that was mobilized to search for a physical that could contain their souls. I’m a lover of movement and discontinuity in art that open new spaces through the freedom of action and choice. I spent my entire childhood with nature, armed with pencils and brushes, which led me to the construction of murals-first inside my house, and then within the city. In my childhood, attending children’s cultural events was important. The figure of my grandfather features in all of this. as a producer of fruits and vegetables, he generously provided feed for the animals of these traveling shows, and in return he received privileged tickets for his grandchildren. Here is where my fascination for visuals and spectacles in motion started. In my early life, all of the influences and stimuli were based on recreational activities. As the years passed, marked by a growing maturity, the beginning of my university studies and the richness of travel, I was able to find much inspiration in the geometry and dynamics of art.”

With his latest group of paintings, now on display at Galería O.M.O., we see a culmination and distillation of all he has done in the past while still, as always, moving forward. It is a small group that is mostly executed on a small scale, making each piece an intense little gem.


Though living and working in Mexico City, I think of Jeanne Saade Palombo as a citizen of the world. Not to say that she physically is always on the move, but with her fantastic imagination she can be in France, Italy, England, or points beyond at any given time.

With “Reinas,” her latest collection of paintings at galería O.M.O. all of this “travel” is evident. “Reinas” is an extraordinary group of paintings depicting queens through the ages…some recognizable, some not. They are all executed on a relatively large scale in Jeanne’s inimitable style. Over the years she has perfected the use of mixed media. While studying these works you know that you are basically looking at an oil painting, but also so much more.

After showing her work internationally over the past number of years, this will be her first exhibition in San Miguel.
