Alejandra will be presenting her show called “Four Installations” with pieces specifically designed and produced to inhabit the immense walls of the room in Bellas Artes. The main feature of her technique is the original embroidery she uses, intervening paper with colored thread sewed by hand and creating characters and movements that add texture and narrative to her works. The colors of her palette go from diaphanous white to acidulous tones that offer an imagery that is very representative of our time. For this new exhibition, she will present a more abstract work with a free style of harmonious shapes and colors. “Four Installations” is work of textile art, street art, collage, and graphic design.
Claudia presents the photographic exhibition “Morido,” which questions the experience of death not from the side of who dies but from who is still alive—in this case through the experience of children. Death is one of the questions left unanswered for humanity, as well as life itself. So she divided her investigation of the subject into three series, where children give their answers to decipher through faith, religion, education, culture, and more, all of those places where their meanings as references originate. To accompany the exhibition, the catalog-book will be presented on Saturday, October 29, in the same room at 1pm.
At the Sala Aurora Estrada, Raé, who is an internationally recognized artist for her work in encaustic, will present her exhibition “The Weight of Light,” with a series of works produced especially for this occasion. In her work she uses the strokes of molten beeswax and pigment fused to Arches 300 lb paper. The painting and scraping of many translucent layers allows her to play with the internal light of a piece, resolving toward the surface with mixed media, including oil pigment sticks, graphite, ink, and aluminum leaf.
Centro Cultural Ignacio Ramirez “El Nigromante” Bellas Artes is characterized by its tireless work for the promotion of art, with special attention to supporting national and local artists with quality proposals that deserve an exhibition space, thus enriching the cultural scene of the city of San Miguel de Allende.
