LEGADO. BY: PERSI NARVAEZ-MACHICAO

Por medio de Renzo Ortega, me entero de la reciente inauguración de la exposición “Legado” de Perci Narváez, artista egresado de la Escuela Nacional de Bellas Artes, que presenta esta muestra en Casa de la Cultura – Center for Latino Arts en Boston (USA) hasta el 25 de septiembre.

A continuación la nota de prensa de esta muestra que incide en el tema de la identidad latinoamericana y la gratitud a los antepasados.

Legado

by: Persi Narvaez-Machicao


Vibrantly chromatic images of cultural pride!
On Exhibit
August 2 - September 25 2007

"As modern Latin-Americans, we are very proud to recall our cultural heritage that gives a context to our rich identity; an identity that is sometimes undermined by attempts of globalization, causing us to forget the dignity inherent in what we represent.

In this exhibition, Pre-Columbian images and icons come to life with vivid color in contemporary situations. Through this concept, I hope to reinforce my own identity while expressing gratitude to my ancestors."

Persi Narvaez-Machicao

Persi Narvaez tells his personal story through his painting, creating greatly expressive images of feeling and emotions. In his work, Narvaez explores the connection with his land, his people and himself. His work is based on the reaffirmation of his identity, the social, spiritual identity and the human being.

In his abstract works Narvaez represents the quotidian sexual life but the sexual life as a process of evolution. Thanks to his knowledge and development he can evolve into a spiritual form, continuing the search for the spiritual, if not the physiological center. Using juxtaposition and superimposing images and forms, finding pre-Columbian symbols, he creates the illusion of a sublime space as if from another world.
