Aguilar Soria, winner of the poster announcing the 87 Autumn Salon of the AEPE

On June 23, 2020, the deliberation of the selection jury for the announcing poster took place, which will be the 87th edition of the traditional Autumn Salon, which will be held from October 29 to November 29, 2020 at the Casa of Cows of the Retiro Park of Madrid.

The jury was chaired by José Gabriel Astudillo López, President of the AEPE, acting as Secretary of the same Mª Dolores Barreda Pérez, General Secretary of the AEPE, and counting on the Members Juan Manuel López-Reina, Vice-president of the AEPE, Antonio Téllez, Paloma Casado, Carmen Bonilla Carrasco, Fernando de Marta, Ana Martínez Córdoba and Itziar Zabalza Murillo.

As José Gabriel Astudillo explains, “for the Spanish Association of Painters and Sculptors it is very special to have an identifying image of the Autumn Salon, and that it be a work of the members of our institution, who thus regain prominence in the Autumn Salon ”.

The winning work is from the Honorary Partner of our institution, Alejandro Aguilar Soria, whom we congratulate from these lines, entitled “Self-portrait in Autumn”.

Alejandro Aguilar Soria

Alejandro Aguilar Soria (Madrid, 1962), graduated in Fine Arts from the Complutense University of Madrid, also studying Interior Architecture and Public Relations and Advertising.

From her earliest childhood she lived with artists and intellectuals of the first order who populated her house and visited her grandfather, Francisco Soria Aedo and her mother, Fernanda Soria, recognized and unjustly forgotten artists, from whom she learned the cleanliness of the line, drawing and the coloristic technique that gives so much strength to his works. His experience in these years will deeply mark his later, classic and avant-garde artistic practice.

A teacher at various art schools, a study assistant to other great masters, he reacted to the conceptual trends typical of the 1980s and began his personal artistic career in a painting completely identifiable with his curious and dreamy personality. Currently, and after a stage as a gallery owner in which success distanced him from his true passion, he directs his own painting studio, Estudio Larso, and has more than thirty years of teaching that have earned him the recognition of artists and teachers.

Multidisciplinary artist, his work covers a wide spectrum of expressive forms: photography, installation, drawing, visual poetry, printmaking, but it is painting that occupies most of his production.

The thematic axis that unifies the work of Aguilar Soria, are the symbols, signs and pictograms and their interrelation with their own and imagined environments.

In his oils and acrylics, his characters, generally anonymous men and women, are often seen with trivial, mute and also mysterious postures and appearances, with elements as capricious as the prolongation of their limbs in unusual objects that become the keys hidden that suggest the relationship of these figures with each other and with the viewer.

Among his references: the night, the city, the history of art, cinema, photography, society, religion, culture, death, sex, animals, iconic and legendary images, etc. Any aspect that influences the formation of contemporary being has a place in its repertoire of ideas and reflections.

However, there is a common denominator in his work, in his thought and in his work: the idealized modern man. Aguilar Soria raises the idea of ​​the multiple man, the communicator, the one who sees everything and manages everything, the close and passionate, the one who minimizes himself with nature and the urban landscape, with galaxies and the elements.

He has held important individual exhibitions, among which “Iconographic Maps” stand out, at the Museum of Contemporary Art of Castilla-La Mancha (Hellín. Albacete, 2009), “Icônes”, at the D´Art du Rhône Gallery (Genève. Suisse, 2005), “Games”, in Banking Credit Suisse (Madrid, 2001), “Exp. Multimedia ”, at the C.M. (Madrid, 2000), ”Fractals”, at the Elvira Carreras Gallery (Madrid, 1998), “Pictograms”, at the Laberinto Gallery (Granada, 1995), “Encounters”, at the Arsenal Museum (San Juan de Puerto Rico , 1984) … the last one took place in the Madrid Casa de Vacas del Parque del Buen Retiro in 2018, which won him excellent press and public reviews.

A large number of private collections and important cultural institutions have works by this artist, with many works that he has exhibited in places as exceptional as the Museo de Las Escuelas de Luzón, ITIMUSEUM in Argentina, the Volpe Stessens Foundation in Buenos Aires, the Museum Manege of Modern Art of Saint Petersburg, Sharjah Art Museum of United Arab Emirates, the National Library of Madrid, the Enzo Marini Foundation of Bologna, the Fine Arts Circle of Madrid, the Museum of Decorative Arts of Madrid, etc.

Member of the XIII Salon, “Eduardo Chicharro” Painting Prize of the LXXIX Madrid Autumn Salon and the First Prize of the XXIV Animalistic Art Exhibition of the San Antón Academy of Art and Letters, has to his credit other distinctions such as the Diogenes Taborda Grand Prize from the Volpe Stessens Foundation in Buenos Aires and the Painting Prize from the Eureka Hall in Madrid.

Once the prize has been awarded, from S.M. Queen Doña Sofía, Honorary President of the Spanish Association of Painters and Sculptors, began the visit to the exhibition that lasted until past nine o’clock at night.

YE. Queen Doña Sofía stopped with each and every one of the artists present at the event, chatted with them, asked them what most caught their attention of each work, including anecdotes, memories and recognitions to whom she has been fighting for the world so much of art and culture.

Not surprisingly, the Spanish Association of Painters and Sculptors has been working on this event for a year, which shone among all the events scheduled in the capital in a month also focused on art thanks to the countless Fairs that have populated the spaces of Madrid.

From the guests invited to the event, important for the centennial entity for what represents their support and encouragement in the daily work of the AEPE, the Jury, to the selected artists, who felt really protagonists in moments in which art and art culture seems to be unimportant, everything was planned to the smallest detail, which the Perpetual Secretary did not overlook.

Despite the adverse weather, and as has always been the case that the Spanish Association of Painters and Sculptors inaugurates an exhibition at the Casa de Vacas del Retiro, on several occasions it was necessary to close the access to the Center, due to the excess of capacity, opening the same as he was evicting, which gives an idea of ​​the tremendous success and great expectation that always raises the Autumn Salon in Madrid.
The presentation of the act was in charge of the Secretary General of the AEPE, Mª Dolores Barreda Pérez, who addressed those present to remember that “the Spanish Association of Painters and Sculptors has 109 years of history. Thanks to calls such as the one that brings us together today, we are still serving years. From the Board of Directors we only want to thank partners, friends, general public, sponsor, collaborators and institutions, your full support for our continued work for the benefit of art and artists. Since 1910, 109 years later, we continue to make culture. To all, thank you very much. ”
He explained later that this year and for the first time, the Board of Directors had agreed to invite Chinese artists to participate, thus fostering a very important cultural exchange, thanking the assistance of the prestigious sculptor Dong Yang, especially from Shanghai to this 86th Autumn Hall.

Afterwards, and as it has been traditional, the honorary award given annually by the Spanish Association of Painters and Sculptors was presented at the opening ceremony. The Secretary General requested the rise to the stage of journalist, writer and Planeta Prize, Javier Sierra, proceeding to read the designation:
“The Board of Directors of the Spanish Association of Painters and Sculptors, meeting in ordinary session on June 18, 2019, has unanimously agreed to grant the title of SOCIO DE HONOR to Javier Sierra, whose collaboration and close friendship with the Spanish Association of Painters and Sculptors is becoming stronger and more committed.
“Journalist and writer, whose human profile surpasses the professional; man of integrity, simple, human, helpful, humble, attentive, whose smile triggers unusual diplomacies, and who like himself likes to describe himself, has the job of curious.
In recognition of his friendship and exemplarity, his enormous prestige and for having contributed in a relevant way to the significance of our entity, appreciating the activities that the association promotes and responding to the foundational objectives of fostering relations between the art world and the creation.
As a sign of our gratitude for their continued support, accompaniment and complicity in the work of this Spanish Association of Painters and Sculptors, and in recognition of their trajectory in the field of research and dissemination of art, highlighting the contribution that with their works He has managed to bring the world of art closer to millions of readers around the world.

For all this, we are pleased to name Javier Sierra, Honorary Member of the Spanish Association of Painters and Sculptors. ”

Afterwards, the President of the Spanish Association of Painters and Sculptors, José Gabriel Astudillo, addressed the attendees in which he thanked the work of the Jury, the collaborating institutions, Maxam and its Foundation, as well as all the artists who make the contest possible. He also wanted to highlight the work of his Board of Directors, making special mention of the continuous, constant and always effective work of the General Secretary, Mª Dolores Barreda Pérez, which he described as the authentic “alma mater” of the centenary entity.
It was at that time when, outside of any protocol, he proceeded to read an Addendum to the Minutes of the meeting of the Board of Directors on June 18, 2019, in which it is explained that taking advantage of an absence of the General Secretary of the entity, Mª Dolores Barreda Pérez, responsible for raising the official minutes of the session, and with the unanimity of the members of the Board, it was agreed to distinguish Mª Dolores Barreda Pérez with the title of PERPETUAL SECRETARY OF THE SPANISH ASSOCIATION OF PAINTS AND SCULPTORS, in recognition to his excellent and unstoppable work and dedication to the entity.
We believe that it is fair to recognize the work of those people who are exceptional and essential in the art world, people who make real the saying that success always precedes work.
All the partners enjoy that success thanks to the attitude and work of those who make us bigger every day as an institution and ensure that day by day is attended not only diligently, but correctly and in a gratifying way. That is why this institution is better every day and provides an image of seriousness and prestige that, as I said, benefits everyone.
Placing a centennial entity of the first order in the 21st century has been an important challenge that our Secretary General has amply achieved in a work model that not only is the most successful, but that more than meets and exceeds the expectations generated in this regard. .
Modernization, transparency and attention and closeness to the needs of the associates have been an unwritten rule with which it has managed to awaken the spirit of our entity and thus contribute to the Spanish Association of Painters and Sculptors has developed as a diversified institution and open to the outside, until it becomes a modern and prosperous reality.
But in addition, preserving the history and heritage of the entity has been a priority in the work of Mª Dolores Barreda Pérez, who is carrying out through the Historical Archive “Bernardino de Pantorba”, a project that has crossed borders and makes us captain the research work on the history of art in Spain in the 20th century.
Its involvement is also leading us to recover the memory of the first artists of the Spanish Association of Painters and Sculptors and to be present, in this way, in the most important cultural events celebrated in Spain for this reason.
In the Spanish Association of Painters and Sculptors we have the honor of having magnificent artists, with exemplary people who have achieved success with a lot of work, dedication and talent.
And one of them is Mª Dolores Barreda Pérez, journalist, Director of the Gazette of Fine Arts, researcher, art historian, member of the Spanish Association of Art Critics but, above all, a magnificent person of overwhelming personality, who is of justice recognize and applaud his special dedication and dedication, his good work, full of commitment and honesty, his charisma, authenticity and talent.
The Spanish Association of Painters and Sculptors is increasingly prestigious and great because it knows how to recognize those who have a special talent and feel committed to making their work an engine for the expansion of that talent.
That is why Mª Dolores Barreda Pérez is a good portrait of the entity we want, with values ​​and that values ​​work, the desire to improve and the shared effort. It is the portrait of those people who fight every day for art, for artists, for culture and who do it also, investing a time, effort and a totally altruistic will and that must be recognized,
An entity is worthy of admiration when its members are too and when it treats those admirable people as they deserve. That is why we have the obligation to recognize this merit and in this way the Board of Directors of the Spanish Association of Painters and Sculptors wants to do it on behalf of all its partners, because making our entity better is a matter for everyone. Only in this way do we achieve that the best years of the artistic history of Spain are those that lie ahead, those that remain to be lived and those that remain to be written.

And so we signed it in Madrid, on June 18, 2019, the rest of the members of the Board of Directors of the Spanish Association of Painters and Sculptors, keeping this resolution secret until the delivery of the distinction, which will take place within the framework of the Opening ceremony of the 86th Autumn Salon held at the Casa del Vacas of Madrid’s Parque del Retiro on November 7, 2019.
Excited and visibly surprised, Mª Dolores Barreda Pérez picked up a plaque from the President and with the emotion of the moment, she was only able to thank everyone for the immense honor that the appointment entails, since in the entire history of the centenary entity, only There has been a Perpetual Secretary whose memory draws on countless historical accounts of the AEPE.

There was no shortage of friends, partners and a large number of people attracted by the colorful environment in which Leovigildo Cristóbal wraps some large works created expressly for this exhibition, which is the fulfillment of the Tritoma Award of the 84th Autumn Salon, which so rightly It was granted last year 2017.

José Gabriel Astudillo, President of the AEPE, has made the introduction of the catalog published for such reason that we reproduce below:

“Talking about Leovigildo Cristóbal is talking about Peru. Not only because that is his birthplace (Ticllos, province of Bolognesi, Department of Ancash), but because everything in it calls the artistic life of a great nation such as Quechua, which treasures great cultures such as the Nazca and large Inca treasures such as Machu Picchu. It is those colors and those lands that flood the production of cholo works, which are so characteristic and that represent the reflection of their landscapes and their artistic tradition, present in the Andes mountain range and in the virgin forest surrounding the lake Titicaca All his creations are characterized by the color of lighted tones and many contrasts, with the different nuances that disperse the seas, mountains and deserts of the Andean country. The snowy white of Huaytapallana, the blue of Lake Titicaca, the lush green of the Amazon jungle of Iquitos, the colonial yellow of Trujillo, the purple of the dawn of the Ucayali river, the intense red of the dishes of the earth, the orange of the sunsets of the Amazon, the golden desert of Paracas and the impressive rainbow of all its festivals and popular celebrations. This illustrious son of Ticllos, “ORGULLO DEL PERÚ”, shows his belonging to the Spanish Association of Painters and Sculptors that I am honored to preside over. His continued presence in the Autumn Salon and other events of our organization, has shaped his idiosyncrasies and shapes his special vision of the Andean world that always provides us with large formats and selected themes in which the figure of women always stands out. In the last edition number 84 of the Salon de Otoño, Leovigildo Cristóbal Valverde was awarded the “Premio Tritoma” awarded by a consolidated company and expert in cultural management with more than 30 years of experience, which now presents a monographic exhibition of the Peruvian, in the one that we are going to enjoy that color and that chromatic sensitivity that to all his works prints who so deeply loves them “.

“Dear president:

I want to formally inform you of my decision to resign as Vice President of the AEPE.

Belonging to the Board of Directors supposes a dedication that, at this moment, for reasons of personal character, I can not offer.

Having been part of your team has been an honor for me and I here make it clear that the current Board of Directors, all its components with you at the helm, manages the interests of the AEPE in a masterly manner.

As a personal friend of yours, I thank you for your consideration towards me and I am at your disposal for what you need. As a member, I will continue contributing in everything I can, to the centennial prestige of our beloved association.

A hug,

Juan de la Cruz Pallarés García
