The beauty of the Ecuadorian Amazon was captured by the Quito artist Jamie Romero and since last October 8 this can be appreciated at the Luis Noboa Naranjo Museum where his exhibition “Amazonas” was inaugurated.
Jaime Romero defines his exhibition as early impressionist focused on quaternary colors to highlight the beauty of the nature of the country.
Pablo Martinez, director of the museum founded by Alvaro Noboa, highlighted the message of Romero about concern for the environment. Santiago Romero, son of the artist, said that can be seen the magical realism can be appreciated in the work of his father as the adoption of impressionism.
“Amazonas” will be open to the public until October 22.
Romero was born on June 14, 1961, in San José de Minas, in the Pichincha Province. He studied plastic arts at age 15 in the School of Fine Arts of the Central University (Faculty of Arts).
His painting, in addition to being populated by children, denotes an expressionist treatment of faces.
In 1992 he worked at an exclusive workshop in Berlin, where he exchanged techniques with the German artist Peter Echulse. He exhibited these works (40 canvases) in Bonn, Germany.
He worked as the exclusive representative of the the art historian Mercedes Cifuentes in Spain.
In Central America he paid tribute to the children of war in San Salvador in 1994 at the Cultural Centre Cenar. One of his works is exhibited in the museum of the Bank of Guatamala.
During a visit to the museum of master Jose Luis Cuevas in Mexico City he accepted his suggestions about a work must always originate from first impressions.
His collection “Nights of Bohemia” was honored by art critic and Mexican poet Macario Matus. In Miami he exhibited his work at the Porton Gallery; he did likewise in Houston, Texas, at the University of St. Thomas, where he gave a lecture on Latin American painting. He studied the works of the Metropolitan Museum and painted two murals for collectors in New York.
In 2014 he presented his collection “Amazon” in Switzerland, the same that will be exhibited at the Luis Noboa Naranjo Museum from October 8 at 19:00.
Thursday September 17 took place the inauguration of the exhibition “Aspects of Human Figure” by Golett Orvieto, and “Oneiric Erotism” by Arturo Constante in the Luis Noboa Naranjo Museum, founded by businessman Alvaro Noboa.
“It is based on dreams, emotions but I resolve it in a plastic way,” said Arturo Constante about the name his collection, which has a Picassian hint.
Golett Orvieto defines his style as post Fauvism, and in his work he expresses the human figure in daily activities.
The event was attended by relatives and friends of the Guayaquil artists. The presentation was made by Mr. Pablo Martinez, director of the Museum.
The exhibition will be opened to the public until October 2nd.
Born in Guayaquil on January 4, 1943, he has devoted most of his life to painting. He studied at the Fine Arts School of Guayaquil and the Department School of Plastic Arts of Cali, Colombia. He has lived 49 years in the US, where his artistic labor has developed largely.
He describes his style as abstract and neo expressionism, his landscapes as post-impressionist and of suggestive theamatic abstractionism.
He likes to translate what he feels, testimony of his experiences, his emotions. The use of warm colors is always present in his work.
Arthur Constante is a an illustrated sailor who has taken his art to many ports of the world; weaver of shadows and experiences where caricatures of life pour ailments; he knows to consubstantiate ideas with figures; logical images with transparent colors; plastic motivator in each sailing, he suggests new things. He knows how to harmonize the native images with suggestive representations of a planet always metamorphic; spaces and rain with colors with which he knows how to forge his canvases.
Thursday September 17 he will present “Onírico Erotic” at the Luis Noboa Naranjo Museum, an exhibition in acrylic and mixed technique.
