Maria Teresa DÊ¼azucena – El Salvador
Emilio Hector Rodriguez – Cuba
Pleasing the Soul is an opportunity to get acquainted with the recent works of artists MarÃa Teresa Dâ€™Azucena and Emilio HÃ©ctor RodrÃguez. These two painters who are originally from El Salvador and Cuba, respectively, share a passion for art that gives them a vehicle to interpret the world that surrounds them. Many times they use art as the language to express those imagined universes that they discover through their internal eye. What unifies their work is the expressive qualities, the intensity of colors, the sense of movement and transformation, perceptible in each of their compositions. While abstraction and figuration intertwine in MarÃa Teresaâ€™s works, Emilio prefers abstraction to construct his poetic forms and colors. In both cases the result is always of great artistic beauty, and each of their works invites to a visual delight, to discover in the transparencies and varieties of hues delicious harmonies that please the soul.
