CURATORâ€™S VOICE ART PROJECTS, led by curator Milagros Bello, has selected the works of Rosario Bond based on their quality and visual strength. CURATORâ€™S VOICE ART PROJECTS has organized the show LIPSTICK to be presented as part of the main venues within the Miami art scene. LIPSTICK will open on November 8, 2008, and will run during Art Basel week, closing on February 14, 2009.
Rosario Bond proposes neo-expressionistic paintings made out of thick layers of impasto, where figures, objects, and nature intertwine in voracious and parodic relationships. Her most recent series depicts parodies of icons, such as rock stars, models, and other portraits represented through gestural brushstrokes and a bright and intense palette. Her figurative approach is done through a humoristic stanza. Her paintings are collections of personal mythologies combined with critical imagery, posed over disrupted settings and dislocated compositions inhabited by unusual and eerie objects. Her works are a monumental palimpsest of delirious and contrasting shapes that establish a radical dialogue with the Contemporary German neo-expressionists.
