April 7 â€“ 27, 2012
Adrian Bellesguard brings his collection of Women to Rodez Art Gallery this April 7th. Bellisguard grew up in Spain and studied at Englandâ€™s University of Southampton obtaining a Master in European Art but considers himself a self-taught artist. He considers Ramon Calsina and Leonor Fini to be his mentors, but was also influenced by Francis Bacon, Goya, expressionism, and neo-expressionism.
â€œMy approach to the age-old theme of women is no different than any other theme in my artwork. I could say that to paint women or to work in symbolism is just an excuse, but that would be a lie,â€ says Bellesguard.
He goes on to say, â€œConceptual art does not exist, what remains in conceptual art is precisely what is NOT conceptual, art and concept exclude each other. Art can include a concept but there is no art in a concept alone. An idea is not art.
Come meet the artist on opening night as Women opens to the public on Saturday, April 7 during Coconut Grove Gallery Night and will be on view through April 27, 2012.
Gallery hours are Monday through Thursday, 11 am to 7 pm, and Friday & Saturday, 11 am to 10 pm.Thank you for using Soul Of Miami!
