Corte del listón

On July 27, the Centro Cultural Bellas Artes presented two new exhibitions, noting that, for the second consecutive year, this heritage city has been named as the best city in the world to visit. They also suggested that that this type of exhibition is an example of the kinds of reasons why San Miguel de Allende has won such an award, thanks to the efforts of the entire Bellas Artes team, especially Viridiana Gutiérrez, who is in charge of exhibitions.

The two artists featured in this exhibit are Yui Sakamoto, a young Japanese man with Surrealist influences, and Alejandro Rivera, a Mexican who walked through the doors of Bellas Artes 20 years ago to begin his first painting classes.

Yui Sakamoto exhibited fifteen paintings that display a mystical, philosophical, religious, spiritual, and sci-fi aura. Each of his paintings has aspects that, when noticed help the viewer understand the work’s complexity. He doesn’t explain his paintings; the spectator has to figure out for himself what Yui wants to convey. We can even notice influences from artists like Brueghel and Bosch.

Mexican artist Alejandro Rivera’s paintings demonstrate sensuality and the harmony between nature and the body. Each of his works is the result of years of learning. One can appreciate the maturity in his most recent works, discipline in search of excellence. Rivera invites all attendees to notice this gradual mastery and to build their own critical thinking so that they may construct their own message about his work.
