Ending the year on a great note.

So before the clock strikes 12 midnight here (I know half of the world is already in 2014). I decided to post, about my last day in 2013, sick and all I ventured into the familiar grounds of MARCO, the musem of contemporaty art here in MTY. Familiar because I spent almost 2 years as a volunteer there during my studies, yet I hadn't ventured in there in almost 4 years. 

Well today there where 3 expositions.

The first "Physis", which supposed to show the link between humans and animals using the human eye as a filter, but keeping everything an enigma.  Although I liked Georgina Quintana's "genesis" and it featured 2 Ray Smith's paintings "Turkish Bath" and "Solijeitsym part Vermont". the rest of the exhibition, just seems a strange collection of random paintings, some of which I couldn't  by eye quite  understand how the collection went together.

The second "Un siglo de Critica" talked about the start of Mexican modern art , starting with the muralisim movement. And yes there where several pieces by , Diego Rivera, Orozco, Siquieiros & Hinojosa. Going though several mediums such as sculpture, photography , paintings and others. It showed the passing of time on a country. From my point of view it was a little dry and could of told a story better.

Finally " Danza de los expectros" now this exhibit I loved. it not only told a story but it was divided in several areas such as " common life" and " animals", showing great pieces from Remedios Varos, Wolfgang Paalen, Leonora Carrington, Alice Rahon, Jose Horna.  All artist who came from Europe and found inspiration in Mexico's culture and life. Because of the quantity and quality of the pieces, bu the end of the exhibit one could easily distinguish each artist. it was a truly enjoyable passing, and a true learning experience for those who haven' had contact with this artist before. 

The last exhibit alone is worth the trip to the museum.

And with this thoughts I end 2013, lets see where we go in 2014.

Happy new year everyone ;)

designer loves art...David Garibaldi...201

mix both of your passions and what do you get?

this is David Garibaldi

born in LA,  he always enjoyed both music and painting, it wasn't until she saw  Denny Dent performing that he understood how he could combine both of this passions. his work is  a energetic combination of energy and rhythm.  although he is familiar with the concept  to what he is going to paint,  most of what is going on in his performances are  sprung at the moment. his technique although messy conveys on a black canvas and brilliant colors. what this techniques shows is the  correct use of space, by using not the canvas as a background but rather as  your main element.

designer loves art...Review...200

Because it's the 200th post today I decided that rather than dedicate it to a person, I'll show some of my favorite images, as a review. I'd like to mention that I have seen this painting or sculptures in person too, in many visits to museums in my travels.

I hope you enjoy them all as well.
