OPENING RECEPTION THURS. JUN 4TH 6-10PM // CLOSING RECEPTION SUN. JUN. 21ST 3- 7PM
Come join us this June 4th (Thurs) as we experience the twists and turns of each line and shape during the explorative opening reception for " My Labyrinth", Graciela Nardi's solo exhibit.
This exhibit is a special treat to have Graciela displaying work in our community as she is normally holding monthly exhibits at her own location, the Latino Art Museum in Pomona, Ca.
MY PAINTING IS A METAPHOR OF MY LIFE.
IF ONE COULD RETRACE THE PATH
FOLLOWED SINCE BIRTH,
A LABYRINTH WOULD EMERGE. THIS LABYRINTH IS THE STAGE
OF MY DAILY EXPERIENCES
WHICH I TRY TO COMPREHEND, ENDLESSLY.
WHAT IS AT THE END OF THIS MAZE IS THE BEAUTY I PURSUE,
AS A GUIDING LIGHT WHICH IS CONSTITUTED BY MY WORK.
THE LAYERS UPON WHICH RESTS
THE STRUCTURE OF MY PAINTING IS THE DIALECTICAL
FORCE THAT PROPELS MY LIFE,
THE LIFE OF ONE WHO STRIVES TO ATTAIN BEAUTY.
MI PINTURA ES UNA METAFORA DE MI VIDA.
SI UNA PUDIESE RETROTRAERSE HACIA AQUEL
PUNTO DE PARTIDA CUANDO TE ASOMAS POR PRIMERA VEZ A LA LUZ,
UN LABERINTO SE LEVANTARIA FRENTE A TI.
ESTE LABERINTO ES LA ESCENA DE MI VIDA COTIDIANA.
LO QUE ANTICIPO AL FINAL DE TODA ESTA ENCRUCIJADA
ES LA BELLEZA QUE PERSIGO.
LA CUAL SE CONVIERTE EN LA LUZ QUE ME GUIA
O SEA EL ARTE MISMO.
LAS CAPAS SOBRE LAS CUALES SE APOYA MI PINTURA
ES LA FUERZA DIALECTICA QUE IMPULSA MI VIDA,
LA VIDA DE ALGUIEN QUE SIEMPRE BUSCA LA BELLEZA.
“art is like good vintage that ripens well in passion”
GRACIELA HORNE NARDI
