Yesterday, at 19:00, the Luis A. Noboa Naranjo Museum carried out a pictorial exhibition from Ecuadorian artist Nancy Vizcaino Burgos, who presented over 42 art pieces.
The exhibition started with an opening ceremony in which Pablo Martinez, director of the Museum, presented the artwork.
“Her art is filled with roots of our country, therefore, I dare to say, it travels through the time and history of our country(…) It also has modern and contemporary faces where she introduce images of human beings in different situations”, expressed Martinez in his speech, who also pointed out, that Nancy has achieved several awards in national contests, thanks to her discipline and dedication, like the first prize in the Luis A. Martinez Biennial, in Ambato, and the second mention in painting, PARIS prize, also in Ambato.
For her part, the artist thanked through a short speech to all the people present in the exhibition of her artwork, which are produced with wild materials that bring a weathered twist, earthy and rusted, to her paintings.
“I just want to thank you. I know that all the people gathered here, is here for the art. It only remains for me to say: enjoy my work”, said Nancy Vizcaino.
Several characters related to art and culture attended the exhibition, like the Spanish poet Antonio Santos and the ecuadorian painters Marcos Martinez and Cristian Moreano.
The access to the Museum is free to see the pictorial exhibition. The Museum is located in P. Ycaza and Cordova streets and the exhibition is open between 10h00 and 18h00, until June 7.
Nancy Hipatia Vizcaino Burgos, has a degree in Fine Arts from the Central University of Ecuador, she has been an artist for 25 years and she has focused her work into the integration of oils, drawings, and different textures in her art pieces.
Nancy explains that being and sculptor-engraver has made her focus her work more into painting, due to the lack of spaces in that field. Her beginnings were into packaging, but soon after, she started to incorporate different materials to her paintings, what she called her second period. In her third period, she incorporated acids and oxides and in her fourth period she started with the drawings.
In this new face, which is being exhibited at the Luis A. Noboa Naranjo Museum, Nancy shows that her fifth period is composed by the integration of all the resources used before: oils, drawings and textures.
This fine artist, born in Quito, says that her greater inspiration comes mainly from nature. She uses wild materials, that can give a weathered twist, like earthy or rusted. From this last period, she highlights the porous stone, found in mines, also the use of glitters to give the weathered effect to a metal exposed outdoors. Besides the frequent use of earth, clay and wood.
“When I pick a theme, any theme that comes from the heart, I do it by looking for a more introspective sense; more essence. To capture a gaze, the expression of tenderness, the pain or the sadness.”
Her paintings project, more than a particular theme, the nature itself. That is why she uses the countryside, the animals, but more than anything, the coherence between the theme and the textures, and the whole composition at the end.
Her artwork is also characterized for its large size. She assures that the use of stones and different types of earth add a heavy weight that a small canvas could not bare. Besides, a canvas of small capacity wouldn’t let her express the entirety of her idea.
On Wednesday may 22 of the current year, the Luis Noboa Naranjo Museum will present the exposition of the plastic artist Nancy Vizcaíno Burgos, from Guayaquil, who works her art pieces by drawing, painting and sculpting. Her work is a research process involving social non-organic elements.
She has a degree in plastic arts of the Central University of Ecuador, her studies were carried out between the years of 1986 and 1992.
She has performed 8 individual expositions in Ecuador and has obtained several awards in national contests like the first prize in the Biennial Luis A.Martínez of Ambato, and a mention in painting, PARIS award, also in Ambato.
Besides, she represented Ecuador in the Biennial of Florencia in Italy in three ocassions.

Yesterday, at 19h00, was held the painting exhibition of Chilean artist Fernando Manriquez Murua, great exponent of latin american art, at the Luis A. Noboa Naranjo museum in Guayaquil.
Manriquez, born in ValparaIso, has brought his art to Chile, Venezuela, Panama, Colombia, Europe and Ecuador, the latter, a source of inspiration for his studies on ancestral cultures, which are reflected in his artwork.
During the opening of the exhibition, Manriquez started his speech with a warm greeting to all people present. “I am deeply grateful to the museum and its organizers for the invitation extended to me to exhibit my paintings for a month, artwork that represents a set of work that I have been carrying out throughout the years”
“I am very pleased for this exhibition, because I haven’t exhibited in Guayaquil for many years. I lived here for a long time and I have excellent memories. To be a part of the Ecuadorian plastic arts is a great honor to me”, added the painter.
Finally, Manriquez ended his speech with a deep thought about art, and thanked again the audience and the museum for such warm welcome, “The plastic language is a universal language that has no boundaries or limits. I hope that you enjoy my work. Thank you all and the museum for welcoming me as a museum should welcome every artist, thank you very much”.

The Luis A. Noboa Naranjo Museum is pleased to invite you at the inauguration of the Painting Exhibition of Artist Napoleon Paredes
Napoleón Paredes (Quito, 1947)
The motley of his compositions is at certain moment, one of the most visible features of the work of Mr. Paredes, with a refined sense of composition and color. That mottling includes both architectural lines as well as zoomorphic and anthropomorphic figures, all treated with a technique that reveals a trade very developed, based on wise combinations of pigments. The Theme also results in still lives and figures and human groups that would seem inflated like stuffed dolls, whose connotation is the opinion of the spectador.
Around 200 children and young people with special capacities, students of the Hilarte Community Association, took part in a Art Display in the Luis A. Noboa Naranjo Museum.
The works were done under the guidance of artists and teachers William Martínez, Maura Basurto and Patricio Sampedro.
