I’m happy to be taking part in 'Reimagined Realities' which opens in Barcelona tonight.

The four paintings I’m exhibiting are based on television characters from the series I watched during and since the pandemic.

The idea of the female gaze is central to these recently painted portraits of iconic female characters from film and television. I’m mesmerised by the power these characters hold in the collective psyche.

I’m showing June , Eve and Villanelle and Beth .queensgambitnetflix. Each of them is simultaneously being watched and watching, on the threshold of strength and vulnerability, wisdom and innocence. Using the cinematic technique of the close-up, the composition zooms in showing us the raw emotion of the moment.

Thank you to De Souza Gallery and Arterie Boutique for the invitation to take part.

We'd love to see you at the opening if you are in Barcelona!

"Reimagined Realities"

Silvia Bertocchi - Ana Coutinho - Sonia Domenech - Stephanie Farah - María Fernández - Laura Fridman - Marie Julou - J. Kesín - Celia Kettle - Josie McCoy - Juan Petry - Laura Sottosanti

Arteria Art Gallery en colaboración con De Souza Gallery se complace en presentar "Reimagined Realities", una cautivadora colección de pinturas que muestran el poder del arte para tomar objetos, escenas y conceptos cotidianos y presentarlos bajo una luz completamente nueva. Mediante el uso del color, la forma y la composición, los artistas destacados invitan a los espectadores a cuestionar su percepción de la realidad y explorar las profundidades de su imaginación.

A lo largo de la historia, el arte nos ha permitido afinar nuestros sentidos para ver lo ordinario como extraordinario. Varios movimientos artísticos como el romanticismo y el surrealismo han revelado el misterio y la maravilla del mundo exterior e interior a través de la representación figurativa. De manera similar, durante más de un siglo, el arte abstracto ha servido como catalizador para cuestionar nuestras nociones preconcebidas de la realidad, ampliando los límites de la representación tradicional. Al abrazar la libertad de crear su propio lenguaje visual, los artistas abstractos han explorado el poder espiritual y emocional del color y la forma.

Dentro de esta exposición, una amplia gama de artistas lo guiarán a través de sus visiones artísticas únicas, invitándolo a un viaje de descubrimiento e interpretación. Mientras navegas por la exposición, déjate transportar a nuevos reinos de imaginación y contempla las extraordinarias posibilidades que se esconden en su interior.

OPENING TONIGHT! SURFACE TENSION by Greg Bryce, J. Kesin, Michael Schmeja

This exhibition explores rhythm, pattern and layers, notions that, while they may first appear unconnected, are in constant dialog at the core of abstract painting. Rhythm in art, like in life, is an omnipresent reality. In its simplest form it is the repetition of recognizable similarities and differences. It is pulse. It is wavelength. It is energy itself. Rhythm exists at all stages of an artwork’s creation, allowing expressive marks on the canvas to both arrive and reach the viewer’s eye.

About the artists:
Greg Bryce, a master of evocative yet minimalist color palettes and dynamic compositions, brings a vivid interplay of forms and textures to the canvas. His works invite viewers to contemplate the nuances of human emotion and perception through a kaleidoscope of abstract shapes and harmonious hues.

J. Kesin, celebrated for his ability to imbue the canvas with a palpable sense of energy, introduces a dynamic dimension to the exhibition. His paintings are a testament to his mastery over movement and form, leaving behind a mesmerizing trail of visual poetry.

Michael Schmeja, known for his meditative approach to abstraction, introduces a serene yet powerful narrative to the exhibition. His pieces offer a sanctuary of calm, inviting viewers to introspect and connect with the ethereal aspects of the human experiMichael Schmeja, known for his meditative approach to abstraction, introduces a serene yet powerful narrative to the exhibition.

Between Us
Sun Bleached Blue
Cascada Tejido

Water, a vital component of life, is under immense threat from pollution. Discarded plastic bottles and bags often end up in the ocean, where they break down into microplastics and contaminate the water we drink and the fish we eat.

Kettle’s artworks on show all use plastic collected from beaches and urban areas to draw attention to this issue. ‘Between Us’ is a canvas with peepholes that encourages us to look within ourselves for solutions.

‘Sun Bleached Blue’ is painted on a Pepsi Max advert found on the street, and its dribbled lines of paint represent the action of the sun and the waves on the blue plastic bags found on the beach.

‘Cascada Tejido’ is made from found plastic sewn together with threads from discarded fishing nets, highlighting the fact that fishing nets make up half of the plastic contamination in our oceans, and are a major contributor to the extinction of marine life.

Exhibition Dates:
1 July 2023 – 31 July 2023

J. Kesin

Kesin’s works on display delve into the depths of light, time, and cosmic forces. They are composed of many thin, translucent layers of various hues, playing to the idea of the different layers originating from and also representing different times.

‘All the Sunsets’ is a tapestry of lines and rectangles, of horizons and suns, a multitude of different combinations of time and place. The further back the layer, the more distant the horizon in time, the more hidden the sun, a seemingly never-ending cycle of sunsets.

Similarly, the numerous horizontals of ‘Moonlight Ripples’ can be interpreted as individual water horizons, simultaneously representing an array of possible locations and points in time. We may see ‘moonlight’ reflected off a puddle or an ocean, dinosaurs may be close by or humanity might be floating past on risen seas.

‘Constellation Shift’ reflects on the ever-changing nature of the universe. Its layers represent the subtle shifts in time and space that are often overlooked. A reminder that even seemingly insignificant changes can have a profound impact on our lives and on our planet.

“The Beat of Water – Delving into the I Ching”

SONIA DOMENECH

The installation seeks to capture the spirit of healing that we all possess. Water plays an essential role in our bodies and in the composition of the planet and has the power to cleanse and heal. Through tears, our emotions are purified and released onto our skin. Here, emotions are expressed through different colours, with each ball of ice being a different hue. When all the colours are combined, the range of emotions that can be connected to certain colours is revealed.

The ice balls symbolize stagnant emotions that, with the help of the sun’s warmth, but also through tenderness, understanding, and attentive listening, can be released and transformed into something new. In this case, it will be a canvas coloured by the drips of water. Each colour holds its own image of the stored emotions and sensations within our hearts.

Air. Water. Earth. Fire.

This is an exhibition that deals with the elements, specifically the real or imagined "5th element". According to film maker Luc Besson, it is "Space", but to the Greeks it was "Spirit". Heinrich Cornelius, aka Agrippa von Nettesheim, author of three books of occult philosophy, said: "Anyone who knows the properties of the elements and their mixtures will easily achieve wonderful and amazing things and be a consummate master of natural magic". Artists are natural magicians, conjuring up images and objects from thin air. In this show, they reflect on the original four elements, which have been the ordering principles of our world for centuries and provide us with the fifth element: Art.

Col·laboració entre: Oficina Municipal de Turisme d’Ulldecona, La Galeria De Souza i La Casa del Drac

Dates d’exposició: 1 de juliol de 2023 – 31 de juliol de 2023

Inauguració: divendres 30 de juny, de 19 a 21 h

Aire. Aigua. Terra. Foc.

Es tracta d’una exposició que parla dels elements, concretament del “5è element” real o imaginari. Segons el cineasta Luc Besson, és “l’Espai”, però per als grecs era “l’Esperit”. Heinrich Cornelius, també conegut com Agrippa von Nettesheim, autor de tres llibres de filosofia oculta, diu: “Qualsevol persona que conegui les propietats dels elements i les seves mescles aconseguirà fàcilment coses meravelloses i sorprenents i serà un mestre consumat de la màgia natural”. Els artistes són mags naturals, evocant imatges i objectes des de l’aire. En aquesta mostra reflexionem sobre els quatre elements originals que han estat els principis d’ordenació del nostre món durant segles i ens proporcionen el cinquè element: l’art.

Presentem 14 artistes de diversos estils, mitjans i tècniques d’art, que inclouen:

Renate Brändlein - Sonia Domenech - Rolf Habel - Marie Julou - J.Kesín - Celia Kettle - ​​Elena Martí

Josie McCoy - Geanina Miler - Miley - Juan Petry - Francesca Ricci - Isabel Serrano - Rosa Soriano
