Join us for the Opening Reception of â€œAll Dressed Up: Meninasâ€, featuring work by Daniel Garcia, Oswaldo Franco and MANO, 7:00 pm â€“10:00 pm on Saturday, April 21 in conjunction with the Bird Road Art Walk.
The interpretation of the worldâ€™s masterpieces is hardly a new phenomenon. Artists often look to the past to learn from the old masters. In â€œAll Dressed Up: Meninasâ€, contemporary artist: Daniel Garcia, Oswaldo Franco and MANO take on Diego Velazquez, reinterpreting his famed 1665 painting, â€œLas Meninasâ€, which is considered one of the greatest masterpieces ever painted.
The exhibit is not only a matter of looking back at the past but also exploring the popularity of the motif, Las Meninas (Spanish translation Ladies in Waiting). It seems that every generation has made Velazquezâ€™s â€œmeninasâ€ a reflection of their own, hundreds of artists from Pablo Picasso to Vik Muniz have been inspired by the worksâ€™ enigmatic qualities.
In response to this common inspiration, Daniel Garcia, Oswaldo Franco and MANO allowed their own creativity to flow and their original inspirations evolved into multiple individual interpretations. The works include monoprints, mixed media, oil and acrylic inspirations in a myriad of sizes. Velazquez would be pleased.
MANO Fine Art is located in the Bird Road Art District at 4225 SW 75 Avenue (2nd Floor). For more information please contact 305.467.6819.Thank you for using Soul Of Miami!
