There are art galleries and then there are Art Galleries. And we’re not here to cast judgments on one versus the other. After all, so many of our now-revered masters died long before receiving serious recognition or seeing their works on the walls of Respectable Institutions. And besides, the whole point of art (sorry if we’re getting a bit heady for a Tuesday) has more to do with expression and beauty than it does with status and who’s who. As Picasso once said, “art washes away from the soul the dust of everyday life.” And whether it’s on a museum wall or a refrigerator door, that’s what we’re looking for, right? In which case, it’s worth penciling in a visit to Renaissance Fine Art Gallery’s upcoming show—(more toward the museum wall end of the spectrum, to be sure).
The Power of the Abstract features paintings by Mayte Guzman and Beatriz Simon. Both artists live and work in Mexico City where they work both as individual artists and in collaboration with each other. Guzman and Simon explore themes such as time, change and life through symbolism, shape, texture and color. The works are available to view and purchase at the gallery from the 17th until the 26th of this month.
