Attention! Start session for bidding for this lot.

Mixed media on Burlap. Excellent condition. Measures 62x146 cm. RIERA I ARAGÓ, Josep Maria (Barcelona, 1954), painter and sculptor, trained at the Superior School of Fine Arts in Barcelona. He debuted individually in 1981, at the Artema gallery in Barcelona. Two years later he participated in the Autumn Salon of that city, and since then he has shown his work all over the world, in leading galleries in Spain, Mexico, Holland, Israel, Germany, Belgium, France, Luxembourg, Switzerland, Colombia and the United States. Joined. Particularly noteworthy are the individual exhibitions he has held at the Musée de Ceret (France, 1989), the National Library in Paris (1993), the Museum of Modern Art in Oostende (Belgium, 1997), the Joan Prats gallery in New York (1998 ), the Tassende Gallery in Los Angeles (2003) and the Aalst Museum in Belgium (2006), among others. Since 1983, Riera i Aragó has developed his plastic discourse around machinery, with a symbolic language marked by interest in the means of air and sea transport, which he contemplates decontextualized, separated from their original function. At the same time, his plastic language has been enriched through the deepening of the line/plane and empty/full dialogue. Never repetitive, each “machine” he creates evokes, without pathos or condescension, a clear and comprehensive vision of humanity. With a visual vocabulary limited to simple forms reminiscent of zeppelins, submarines or aeroplanes, Riera i Aragó develops a fruitful iconography full of meaning that, endowed with a clear irony, speaks of the absurd recklessness of man's creations and of the poetic justice that results when said creations turn against him. His work must be understood as a global story, which is related to languages as disparate as astronomy, botany, mathematics or mysticism, and which offers the viewer the possibility of entering a particular universe of great lyricism, where reality and fiction cease to be opposite categories. Riera i Aragó is currently represented at MACBA, the Joan Miró, La Caixa and Vicent Van Gogh foundations, the Museum of Modern Art in Luxembourg, the Rufino Tamayo Museum in Mexico, the Ceret and Reattu Foundations in Arles in France, the Otani in Japan. and Heilbronn in Germany, among many others.

  • Nuria Del Pino: "Landscape" (2012)

    DEL PINO, Nuria (Madrid, 1969). “Landscape”, 2012. Acrylic on canvas. Attach certificate of authenticity. Measurements: 85x60 cm. Nuria del Pino has lived in the Canary Islands since she was six years old. He has exhibited in Madrid, Barcelona, London, Boston... He ventured into a variety of artistic languages, but found his best form of expression in painting, a field in which his training is practically self-taught. "My Artwork has to do with space and our relationship with it. It has to do with the big and the small, with what is inside and outside of us, with the universe. The wide, immense desert landscape that surrounds me in the The island of Fuerteventura is a constant in my Artwork and it serves as a vehicle for me to delve into the landscape of the soul. I like to use different techniques depending on the Artwork and the moment, and introduce figurative elements into a Artwork with abstract characteristics". He has held exhibitions at the Emma Gallery in Madrid (May, 2013), at the Juan Ismael Art Center, Fuerteventura (2012-2010), at the Bahia Real Hotel in Fuerteventura, at the Paloma 18 Gallery in Burgos, at the Tostón Castle in Fuerteventura, in the itinerant Naviera Armas (Canary Islands), in Cuasimoda, Barcelona, among others. He has a permanent exhibition of Painting and Sculpture in the Art Gallery, Lajares, Fuerteventura. Del Pino has internalized the wild nature of Fuerteventura, the Atlantic currents that continuously move clusters of fine sand making the desert a living animal of changing orography. Vastness and confinement are reconciled in the paintings of this artist, who transfers to canvas the experience of living in a paradoxical space, of feeling in the middle of an infinite desert and at the same time knowing that she is surrounded by the vast ocean. On other occasions, this internalization process leads to incursions into pure, enveloping, and metaphysical abstraction.
