Spanish Art

Spanish Art London(1)A09A3004

Last evening there was a PV of  Spanish Artists’ Exhibition in Lewisham,

south London. —– Since when I was captivated by the Surrealism Art,

the images and the extraordinary creativity of the Spanish artists were

almost an enigma to me.  I never be impressed by a twist of thinking kind,

but Spanish often conceive utterly inconceivable vision in their

subconscious, long before it become clear image. 

So that, when I saw Sacra da Familia Church of Gaudi in Barcelona,

before my jaw dollop, my hair stood.  = where  imagination came from ? ?

—– The photo above is the typical sample of that kind.  = What a hell !

(It didn’t resort any known figure or style still, utilizing the character

and the possibility of the material to fully express the image = if it was

a stone or wood carving,  such wired distortion couldn’t be created !

— So,  I bought one of black piece,  second from the left on the photo 🙂 )

Spanish Art London(2)325-001

Photo left is a tree made by colourful fabric, so, it has flowers

and a bird on top and so on. =  Rather stale staff  though, as

it is colourful nice decoration,  at least it was photogenic !

(Still, real tree in the nature teachs us 100 times more.  😀 ) 

Photo right was created by the same artist of top photo, Maria.  

Strangely, I felt quite strong spirituality here.   M m m m ???

(Something common with their traditional religious paintings)

As many of familiar faces there, some were not seen years, so,  lots

of talking as well — they said there is a good Spanish wine though, 

I don’t drink alcohol or plastic bottled water, —- I rather wished to

pick a grape or strawberry kind.  😉

Nevertheless, it was an interesting evening, worth visiting there.

Their creations explore the incredible possibility of what their artistic

voices can say to others. They celebrate the diversity of the many ways

that creativity and artistry can be revealed to those who view them.

A voice that expresses our feelings through the work that we produce.

This voice is unique to each one of us. Our creations are expressions of

our concerns & beliefs, our fears, or our deepest hopes.

They represent a personal journey through life that uses a

universal language, art. —– Take it or Leave it.”

      Thanks for visiting here.
      You know, S.A.L ‘s info hadn’t contained any Link, even SAL itself, not
      mention each artist’s. It was badly prepared. You could have done better.
      (I’ve seen thousands of exhibition. 😉 )

    Oh, I love the way you photographed the colourful, tree!
    A beautiful look at the art. : )

      Yes, in fact, round fish-eye made it colourful sphere and
      looks more attractive. (Other artists might felt unfair 🙂 )

    Very interesting exhibition! I like your shot of the tree!

    • yoshizen said, on June 18, 2013 at 18:43

      Make it looks like colorful sphere might be a bit over the top,
      so that a guy created the tree was very delighted. 🙂
      (not many occasion, he could get this kind of photo for his work)
