Galería Intersección Opens New Landscapes Exhibit Featuring 10 International Artists

redescubriendo el eden

By Margaret Failoni

From the ancient scrolls of China to the frescoes and mosaics of the ancient Romans, it would seem that man has always illustrated the land around him and, more often than not, the imagined Eden, the desired ideal.

Intersección Gallery has invited 10 international artists to present their work with their choice of the ideal landscape in its exhibition, Resdiscovering Eden: The Height of Landscape Art.

Superb Mexican figurative artist Alejandro Rivera Leal is a meticulously gifted painter whose work always contains an interesting narrative.

Angel Ricardo Ríos is a Cuban artist living in Cuernavaca, whose work is a love affair with nature. His large, magnificent semiabstract and figurative oils are an orgy of blooms that never fail to capture us.

Edgar Soberón is another Cuban artist who lives and works in San Miguel de Allende. Best known for his bodegones or still lifes, which are widely collected, Soberón breaks with his usual pattern by presenting a beautifully rendered, classical landscape of Holland.

Originally from México City, Enrique Guillén is one of the most promising young artists of the new generation that studied under uber instructor, Ignazio Maldonado.

Originally from the United States Jennifer Posner traveled around the world with her trusted cameras. Here she opens her picture diary to allow us a happy glance at the personal view of a wandering eye.

New Yorker Joan Hall is another extraordinary world traveler and collage artist who has exhibited all over the world, often teaching for US government agencies. Her humorous and surreal interpretation of one of her favorite cities is based on the thrill of the place and the feelings derived.

Keith Miller is perhaps the most extraordinary Canadian artist in San Miguel. His exquisite use of oils, watercolors, and pastels in documenting his world travels is truly unsurpassed.

Originally from the States, Linda Soberman juxtaposes her career as an artist’s artist—teaching and giving conferences around the world—with her San Miguel home, where she concentrates on creating art.

Ron Mallory was one of the first artists to work with mercury back in the ’70s, and his work is part of the Whitney Museum’s collection of outstanding work by American artists.

Santiago Corral, one of the foremost figurative artists in this group of giants, is last but certainly not least. He is equally versatile in the human figure, still lifes, and nature with a prolific and subtle use of light and color.

Besides painting landscapes for this exhibition, the other thing these artists all have in common is not only that they paint what they see, but also paint what they feel—what the ideal is—felt, imagined, and desired.
