"Honoring the Big Leaguers II (A Visual Metaphor) - Enriquillo Amiama"
2008-04-03 until 2008-04-30
KR Korea (South)
Galleria Bellarte in Seoul, Korea is proud to present the first major show in Asia by Dominican painter Enriquillo Amiama. The exhibition will be open until April 30. Chief Curator of Bellarte, Park, Jong Chul wrote about Enriquillo’s works that while paying respect to Jasper Jones, Henri Matisse, Georgia O'Keeffe Domingo Batista, and Kandinsky, he creates his own independent aesthetic creativity that confirms his spotlight in this century. His work was exhibited in Canada, the United States, London, and Latin America, and Gallery Bellarte looks forward to seeing more of his unlimited formative skills as one of the most prominent artists since 1996. Enriquillo Amiama has been a Portfolio Artist at absolutearts.com since the program's inception in 2000.
Passion, Sensitivity and the Aesthetics of Montage
From a country of passion and baseball, born in Santo Domingo in the Dominican Republic, Enriquillo Rodriguez Amiama is well versed in methods from all artistic traditions, has gained inspiration from prominent masters of the most influential schools of art, and unites these various elements of knowledge and skill in his artwork. Through passion, sensitivity and intellect, his aesthetic lets rise a formative temperament of forceful emotions which are sometimes difficult to maintain under self control, yet this passion is suppressed by the geometrical composition of his work, as suddenly, reality emerges through images of properties of matter.
His layers and unusual composition may seem complex at first yet one becomes miraculously drawn to his aesthetic.
Projecting images that surpass time, space, and the historical eras of past artistic trends, Enriquillo Rodriguez Amiama consistently applies genuine principles of formation in his work, without the tendency for rational purpose. For example, the free form of a flower is cut into sharply linear, rectangular forms, producing a strong contrast and achieving harmonious satisfaction along with a visual expression of joy, signifying his understanding and gratitude of his ability to translate all forms of modern art. Inspiring a common visual experience of cohesion and synthesis of realism and abstraction, fauvism and symbolism, and even pop art, which can also be experienced as surrealism, his work can truly be placed in the category of postmodernism and considered as avant-garde in our current era.
Interesting to note are his dedications to artists of all schools of thought, expressing his unlimited love for art, while other times his love for his own nation is subtly conveyed by titles named Dominica.
The composition of pictures in his work, devoid of obstacles and without requiring a difficult philosophy, joyfully manifests and confirms the accumulated shape of the artist's interior self.
Both an artistic composition that shows the essence of the Golden Section and the montages of academic images that unite times and places are grandly and playfully experienced together.
While paying respect to Jasper Jones, Henri Matisse, Georgia O'Keeffe Domingo Batista, and Kandinsky, he creates his own independent aesthetic creativity that confirms his spotlight in this century. His work was exhibited in Canada, the United States, London, and Latin America, and we look forward to seeing more of his unlimited formative skills as one of the most prominent artists since 1996.
