Strata y Meridianos
09 October - 20 December, 2008
Olga de Amaral/ Jim Amaral (Extract from curatorial text)
Majestic fabrics and layered pieces made by Olga de Amaral: carpets, stelae, Umbrian, mountains, alchemy, forests... will shelter La Cometa Gallery and its visitors during this exhibition. While meridian or imaginary lines made by Jim Amaral will be joining the poles of the surreal, unimaginable and erotic (drawings, paintings, books, objects), with the reflection of the silence and stillness of his bronzes (sculptures).
La Cometa Gallery invites you to dive into the world of the AMARALS, and to find the mysterious soul of color that is always tied to the fiber. Walk in these subjective landscapes, these abstract and geometric atmospheres, and experience the reflection and contemplation. We invite you to discover all the inhabitants of the "houses" of Jim, and to a dialogue with his silent characters, to find answers in their books and fly with your imagination.
There is no art where there is no love, no life without art, and what a life if art´s life.
