110 AEPE exhibition opened

Last Tuesday, March 10, 2020, at the La Lonja Hall, Casa del Reloj Cultural Center of the Municipal Board of Arganzuela, the inauguration ceremony and awards ceremony of the “110 AEPE” contest took place, which on the occasion of the celebration of the 110 years of the foundation of the Spanish Association of Painters and Sculptors, the President summoned last January.

The event was chaired by José Gabriel Astudillo López, President of the AEPE and was attended by the Vice President, Juan Manuel López-Reina,  some of the members of the Board of Directors, such as Antonio Téllez de Peralta, Carmen Bonilla Carrasco, Fernando de Marta, Ana Martínez Córdoba, and Itziar Zabalza Murillo as well as a large group of exhibitors, partners and friends of the centenary entity.

José Gabriel Astudillo highlighted in his speech the importance of this call with the following words:

On April 15, 2020, the Spanish Association of Painters and Sculptors celebrates 110 years of an existence marked by the wealth of its greatest heritage: its partners.

And it is that for those of us who form this great family of partners of the Spanish Association of Painters and Sculptors, it is a real pride to be members of such an illustrious institution and to be an active part of an entity that continues to renew itself and interact with Spanish society through the World of artistic creation.

Many have been the artists who have allowed with their creative activity to vertebrate over time an association that has come to celebrate the century of existence with an eye on the future. Many are those who continue to make this path today.

These creators, of acclaimed and recognized talent and many others completely anonymous, are not ordinary people, but artists. Only in this way can their capacity for enthusiasm and vocational struggle, creative work and generosity be explained, which they have been wasting over time, and continue to contribute, in favor of the Spanish Association of Painters and Sculptors.

And there have also been men of culture, intellectuals and art-sensitive people who have served it from positions and management positions and still serve selflessly. All of them, anonymous and famous, are today worthy of applause and congratulations.

To fulfill a century of life is a milestone for any cultural entity. It is a great satisfaction to see the result left behind by more than one hundred and ten years of creativity, artistic innovation and dedication to society.

But the Spanish Association of Painters and Sculptors looks to the future, not forgetting the past, writing in the present the illusion of the challenge of continuing to grow the legacy received, of such extraordinary weight in the Spanish cultural world.

They are one hundred and ten years of corporate life at the service of art in Spain under the direction of the great masters of Spanish painting.

There are one hundred and ten years among which more than 9,000 artistic and cultural activities have been developed, more than eighty-six Autumn Rooms have been organized, an endless number of various exhibitions and the important Reina Sofía Prize for Painting and Sculpture, in order premeditated to give the youth that begins their struggle, an occasion to expose the fruit of their dreams and ambitions. Good proof of this is the coincidence that in these competitions all the great masters began their artistic career.

They are, as we say, one hundred and ten years of life oriented in the effort, in the enthusiasm and in the love to the true art of Spain, in which the city of Madrid has become, of the hand of the Spanish Association of Painters and Sculptors , at the forefront of healthy, intelligent and ethical rebellions in this pilgrimage that is artistic life, through dreams and fulfilled realities. Therefore, our next dream is to strengthen an open image of the Association in artistic and cultural circles.

With this motive, in January I called you to make a great show in which to demonstrate the potential of the artists that formed this great family that of the Spanish Association of Painters and Sculptors.

An exhibition that under the title of 110. AEPE, we celebrate in the splendid Exhibition Hall of the Casa del Reloj Cultural Center of the district of Arganzuela, to whom from these lines I wish to thank your support and trust in this institution.

And to you, the artists, the partners that keep this magic alive, the miracle in the midst of the growing disappointment around the world of culture, that you make us vibrate in each new exhibition, that you work every day more to show us the best of you themselves and the extraordinary talent that characterizes you, congratulate you effusively and wish you all the best together with us.

The winning work is an original idea of ​​the partner Javier Ortás, whom we congratulate from these lines, and it is a watercolor entitled “An autumn painter”, which has been presented on paper in vertical format measuring 60 x 40 cm.

The painter Javier Ortas does not interpret what he sees, but creates his works using only his imagination, without using any model. He works alone in front of the blank support without any reference other than the artistic impulse, inventing and creating scenes, characters and elements of his inner world: ideas, desires, feelings … The result is a pure, defined, resounding and different style , exclusive and diverse works that reveal the peculiarity of his talent.

Javier Ortas was born in Madrid. Being very young he received private classes of oil painting, watercolor, etc., in the school Corazonistas, of Alfonso XIII, of Madrid. Afterwards he has continued to paint and draw on his own “whenever I could”. He has lived most of his life in Madrid, although he also spent many years of his youth in Mexico and the United States.

He began by learning and perfecting his technique based on realism: landscapes, nature, portraits … But he soon felt the need to create without any model and to compose and invent starting from the blank support, without visual references of any kind. As he says, “I am convinced that this is the way in which an artist can offer more of himself and thus display imagination, inventiveness … What we call the purest creativity”.

In recent years he has been seduced by the technique of watercolor, although it is considered very classical, “the truth is that it allows to compose very modern and innovative works” and has established his own pictorial style, peculiar and different. It has also been professionalized and based on several exhibitions (Club Financiero Genoa, Ateneo de Madrid, etc. up to ten individuals), has managed to advance in this difficult world of contemporary art.

Splendid the dominion that the watercolor has Javier Ortas; It reels tones and lights in a dazzling, spectacular way. Before his watered down his ability for drawing is admired. His compositions, complex, are formed by the accumulation of sequences, all explained with the precise detail; You can admire the firm line with which any everyday scene is resolved. He is a different, different watercolorist.

Javier Ortas is an excellent watercolorist. Young and at the same time veteran, innate knower of the pictorial truth, knowledgeable and dominating as few of difficult technique of watercolor. All this, his personality and his pictorial creation, becomes a work of great quality impregnated with humanity, which invites us to know his vision of the world, as an artist and as a person.

The watercolors of Javier Ortas invite the viewer to joy and optimism through the strength of color and the precision of their strokes. Javier Ortas has consolidated his own and different style in which he plays with linear composition through a very precise line, addressing different points of view.
