Miami, FL February 2013 - Rimonim Art Gallery is pleased to present the latest works of Omar Arraez, Beatriz Gerenstein, Victor Montoya and Carlos Tirado.
Omar Arraez is a young emergent Spaniard artist. Lives and works at Spain. He creates astonishing big format drawings of humble people. His works are made on purposefully wrinkled paper, charcoal and Indian ink. The use of his particular technique of manipulating the paper and lighting affects the perception of the texture. Then, his pictures are constructed between shapes and traces on a gray scale where the painted surface fuses with its own shadows.
Beatriz Gerenstein is an Argentinean sculptor, lives and works in Miami. At the very core of Beatriz Gerenstein’s work lies a profound humanism that has been wrought from personal reflection about social problems and the human condition; the mysteries of being; the desire to exist and to love. All these are themes the artist reflects upon in order to enrich the visions of life and universe that are contained therein. These issues, together with the conflictive relationship between culture, mankind and Nature, are Gerenstein’s recurrent themes.
Victor Montoya’s fanciful acrylic paintings are an exhilarating mix of free-spirited abstraction and serious craftsmanship. Montoya paints condensed, cartoonish figures on stylized landscapes made of geometric hills and plains that don’t so much roll as interlock on top of each other, like facets on a diamond.
