Emblematic Artwork by Juan Luis Perez at Variations on the Same Subjects: People, Nature and Geometry Exhibition Curated by Mariavelia Savino

Special Artwork by Juan Luis Perez at Variations on the Same Subjects: People, Nature and Geometry Exhibition, curated by Mariavelia Savino, presented by Contemporary Art Projects USA.

Miami, FL, USA — An emblematic piece initiates the path throughout the exhibition “Variations on the same Subjects: People, Nature and Geometry” presented by Contemporary Art Projects USA and hosted by the ArtsPark @ Hollywood, FL. A large painting by the artist Juan Luis Perez, who was born in Cuba and lives in Miami, FL, Sombras de mi Pasado (Shadows of my Past) Illusions Series, is shown at the entrance of the space. Why? …because this artwork merges several concepts of the overall exhibition, in the intellectual, the creative and the technical ambits. As a curator, I believe that every artist is a communicator, who translates his/her own experience to the current moment in order to state his/her beliefs and messages to the present viewer, as well as to the future generations that later will contemplate the work. This particular artwork has figurative, abstract and geometric elements, creating connections with the natural, the human and the architectonical. Then, each artist is by talent and vocation an innovator, which does not mean that they would not use previous influences or inspiration by other artists. But, the important point, as it is for this artwork and for the artist in the exhibition, everyone is, and must be at the end, unique and original. Finally, any technique used has to be excellent and well managed. Well, I live now the artist to speak by his own. Juan Luis Perez says: “I consider myself away from trends. I create guided by my truest inspiration from total freedom of choice. Completely self-taught, I don’t believe in academic dogmas or market claims. I change style as if changing clothes. Art is passion, fun, great adventure. I use acrylic, oil, charcoal, graphite, resins, gesso, alcohol, and newspapers sheets, love monochromatic tones, rough or dynamic strokes, turning the spatula in my work’s biggest protagonist. I returned to my roots, expressing a traditions’ rich culture filled with energy from pure imagination. My interest revolves around human beings and their conflicts. My works are profound social portraits of a generation. I’m concerned in cultural dialogues between East and West, societies which, despite their differences, belong to the same condition: human.” – “…I use truth and fantasy bringing the viewer a sense of purpose, passion, realism as well as a timeless feel. Through abstract expressions I aim to achieve the emotional compass humanity reveals in all phases of life as a poetic evolution. With every stroke of the brush and a lyrical composition of visual effects I create a dramatic transformation of old and new …a profound connection to express the visuals of my soul.” – “I try to be unique in my own individual way, my work is a fusion of all my lived experiences and skills & techniques gathered over the years, combined to bring a personal expression of energy and a message to myself with a personal stamp that not even I can duplicate. Sometimes, I depict sceneries of natural culture with organic resources such as burlap, tree seeds, bark, raw rope, yarn to express what is available rather than what’s academic. However, from my early childhood Sandro Botticelli was the culprit of my love for visual art, and as a college student, José María Mijares, a Cuban vanguard artist of the San Alejandro School of Arts, was a personal friend and mentor in my beginnings. As I matured in my process, Antoni Tapies as well as Julian Schnabel became my greatest influences. The process of my work differs between installations, sculptures, and paintings. I can start my paintings several pieces at once and employ layers over a period of days. Sometimes I set them aside and finish months later, as they come complete in my mind and eyes. Others are finished rather fast, as I love the turnout of the accidents discovered in the process that then become as a rationalized finish. There are three key elements that separate free Caribbean and Latin American art from socially restrained Cuba and its artists: 1) A primary distinction for Cuban Art is the cultural inheritance of the Afro-Cuban culture and strong Spaniard influence; 2) The diverse level of creativity due to its social lack of resources elevates its inventiveness and passion for expression; 3) The inability to speak out in freedom promotes a more intense visual message.” To conclude, as in this exhibit every artist comes from a different place, background and experience, each artwork will communicate its own message to the public.

The exhibition will take place from August 19 – September 13, 2017.
Monday thru Thursday 11:00a.m. to 8:00p.m.
Closed on Friday, Saturday and Sunday

Contemporary Art Projects USA – Art Santa Fe – July 13-16, 2017

Contemporary Art Projects USA/Gallery announces its return to ART Santa Fe at the Prime Fair Location, Booth #205.

Santa Fe, NM, USA — Contemporary Art Projects USA/Gallery (http://www.contemporaryartprojectsusa.com) announces its return to ART Santa Fe at the Prime Fair Location, Booth #205; as the fair celebrates its seventeenth successful year this summer, July 13-16, 2017, when galleries from around the world will once again offer an outstanding overview of modern and contemporary art.

Designated as one of UNESCO’s Creative Cities, Santa Fe is a globally familiar art destination. The city claims the second largest art market in the United States and draws scores of national and international visitors. The Wall Street Journal’s Smart Money magazine recently noted: “Santa Fe is dotted with 240 art galleries, and is the home of Art Santa Fe, an international art fair that attracts buyers and tourists from around the world. The Santa Fe art scene is one of the best you will find anywhere.”

According to their Chief Curator, Mariavelia Savino, five words define this year’s Contemporary Art Projects USA booth at Art Santa Fe: Diversity, Mastership, Communication, Actuality and Uniqueness.

The fifteen artists presented are from Santa Fe itself and from other US cities, as well as from Latin America, Europe, Asia and the Middle East. From very figurative to abstract, as well as Geometric and Kinetic. Their artworks represent all media from metal or Plexiglas sculptures to photography, unique mixed media, painting and tri-dimensional collages. In our booth, we made real the term “Fusion,” which is the leading motive of this Art Fair, assembling together the meanings of fashion, technique, the world and at the same time highlighting the unique creative message of each artist, everyone so different from the other, but forming a whole to celebrate their talent: humanity, beauty, nature and life.

Contemporary Art Projects USA is honored to present the extraordinary art by Brian Blunt, Local Invited Artist, Chris Delias European Invited Artist, Hugo Diaz, Adriana Dorta, Kelly Fisher, International Guest Artist, Lolo Loren, Ricardo Lowenberg, Mexican Invited Artist, Zammy Migdal, Guest Artist, Kyu Nam Han, Asian Invited Artist, Juan Luis Perez, Cuban Invited Artist, Anrika Rupp, Nataly Schloser, William Sthalhut, Henrik Welle, and Michele A.
