FEMACO 2008







Last Sunday I decided to go to the Mexican Art Fair: FEMACO with my friends.

My general opinion about the fair is that it was real boring... most of it was conceptual art, and bad conceptual art with some few exceptions.

Anyway I had a great day, I liked very much some sculptures from a Polish artist that was in a Gallery from Barcelona, and later I discovered that this gallery belongs to the niece of my good friend Tom, with whom I meet every Friday in order to paint with model! Tom knows the whole artistic jet set in Mexico City, so we were drinking beer with a lot of interesting people.

Something very touching that happened to me was that I met my first boss! Yes, the first time I have got a job, I worked as an architect at Teodoro González de León Architectural Bureau. Now I met him and he was very happy because The Union Internationale des Architectes (UIA) jury has awarded him with the 2008 Gold medal.

In the last pic I am posting here I appear with him.

Show Time








Now I am not at all at home... that means I have no time to paint :(
and this will continue till I set up all the things I have to do prior to my moving.

My solo exhibition takes most of my time... but I also have to admit that I spend a wonderful time when people come and watch my exhibition. Most of them are good friends... so I enjoy it very very much.

Human Landscapes Museography










I am posting here the exhibition space, because I liked very much the way the paintings were arranged. I exhibited 30 paintings... but the truth is that I had chosen 37 paintings for this exhibition, but when I painted I didn't realized the way all those paintings will look together. When I was at the gallery the museography expert showed me how bad some paintings looked together and we decided then to take off 7 paintings.

Less is more, isn't it?

Group exhibition





Today, just a week before my solo show I was invited to show my work in a group exhibition. I was happy to be there because I was besides showing my work with my dear painter friends.

April watercolors






Here I have just posted my first April watercolors... they are different. After seeing Zbelnu tree I wanted to try some tortuous lines. But those tortuous lines must come from feelings, not from making an "ex profeso" wavy line. So I decided to make these watercolors with my left hand. My left hand is first of all not tamed :) second, it is besides the hand that is much more connected with feelings and last but not less, it is the femenine hand (I have learned in yoga that the left side is the femenine side)
