Another great success of Javier Sierra

Last Friday, November 29, 2019, at the headquarters of the Spanish Association of Painters and Sculptors, the writer and journalist, Planeta 2017 Award, and Honorary Partner of our centenary entity, Javier Sierra, revealed to us the mystery that surrounded life of the brilliant artist, architect, engineer and inventor Leonardo da Vinci, coinciding with the exhibition “Leonardo VIVE. Tribute to Leonardo da Vinci ”, which contemplates the tribute of the AEPE to one of the most extraordinary Renaissance artists, who had such an influence on the conception and origin of the most radically modern painting.

In a crowded room of public, the entrance with makeshift chairs had to be enabled so that all attendees could hear what Leonardo was like, being from his best known work, La Gioconda, to others his in which the mystery and winks of the creator, They signed their work by adding personal details that at first glance may go unnoticed.

The presentation of the act was in charge of José Gabriel Astudillo, President of the Spanish Association of Painters and Sculptors, who thanked Javier Sierra for his willingness to always collaborate with the entity and then gave the floor to Mª Dolores Barreda Pérez, General Secretary of the AEPE, who outlined small brushstrokes of the author’s biography, with special emphasis on his personal achievements, so unusually recognized by institutions and the public.

Then it was Javier Sierra who enchanted the audience over an hour and a half that he knew little by little, leaving the audience with “honey on the lips” and above all, with a lot of questions and a new perspective of the work and life of Leonardo da Vinci.

After the talk, the attendees spoke with the author, who kindly attended to everyone and received the congratulations of a delivered audience that congratulated and summoned the writer to continue telling the mysteries that hide the works of art.

A “master lesson” that everyone can read in the bestseller “The Secret Dinner”, in which Javier Sierra carries out a narrative that reveals what the true sources that Leonardo da Vinci drank to paint the sacred work could be. known from Christendom.

The Last Supper is full of signs that indicate that behind its appearance there is much more than mixed paints: What does the knot on the tablecloth that covers the table mean? Why didn’t he paint the halos of holiness that usually adorn the heads of the apostles or Jesus in other works that represent the same scene? Not even the Passover lamb of the Jewish holiday they celebrated? Why is Leonardo himself portrayed in the play, and also with his back to Christ? Who is the true traitor? And above all, where is the Holy Grail?

Information that always interests artists and the general public, but that told by him, manages to make someone who discovers what Leonardo hides fall in love.

”Leonardo said that great men began great works and working men finished them.

Well, that’s right, Ramón Córdoba combines work and genius, tireless and discovering in each work a painting that without more, has everything. And it is that the trade and the know-how and pleasure, is something that as an artist shows us in each one of the works that he performs and that is as if he wanted us to enjoy and delight with each of his brushstrokes, his lights, his nuances , and in short, his good work to which he has always accustomed us.

This exhibition is a luxury for those of us who will enjoy this colossal show in the cultural center of Sanchinarro ».

The Ramón Córdoba Workshop ends with great success

The Workshop of Landscape of the AEPE, that has been imparting in the Madrilenian Park of the Good Retirement of the 16 to the 20 of July of 2018 finalized his classes the past Friday day 20.

The workshop has been run by Ramón Córdoba Calderón, addressing painting outdoors in one of the months that placid can do this task.

The pictorial technique of “plein-air”, or what is the same, to paint in the open air, is a modality that develops from nature and whose will and effort need a strong discipline and a specific technique.

Logically, the main objective of the Workshop has been for the student to acquire something that he did not have before, integrating himself into a process of progressive, cooperative, collaborative learning and by the hand of a great professional of the technique such as Ramón Córdoba Calderón, which has focused on teaching students to acquire methodological procedures to develop through a process of personal research and constant work, an evolution in the theoretical-practical language itself as a professional, oriented to the observation and development of the concept of landscape.

Create, develop and produce images, shapes, objects, environments with which to channel the expression of the sensitivity of each artist and serve as an enrichment of their own experience, studying the different pictorial techniques to elucidate how to solve with creativity and dexterity representation of nature and elements of the landscape.

That has been the key to the success of a workshop that promises to repeat itself in the fall and in another landscape environment that will surely delight lovers of this type of painting.

HOTELS WITH ART of AEPE

A project of the Spanish Association of Painters and Sculptors carried out by the Community of Madrid

Last November, the President of the Spanish Association of Painters and Sculptors held an interview with the Director General of Tourism of the Community of Madrid, Carlos Chaguaceda, in which he explained the idea of ​​making the best hotels in the capital A large exhibition hall where the members of the centenary entity could show their works and also serve as a complaint and encouragement to visitors and customers.

1

The idea, which was not only liked by the General Directorate, but which was supported by the Hotel Business Association of Madrid since its inception, has been profiled until the official inauguration of a first “pilot experience” Place on Tuesday, February 21, 2017, coinciding with ARCO.

For this, AEPE has been insisting its partners for some years, in which artists send photographs of their works and above all, keep us informed about the availability of them, so that at any time Can count on your participation in this and in many other projects that we carry out.

The transformation carried out by the Spanish Association of Painters and Sculptors in the last four years and which has placed it as one of the main institutions generating culture and art throughout Spain, presents a project that has wanted to be baptized as “HOTELS WITH ARTE “, born with the support of the Community of Madrid and the Hotel Business Association of Madrid, in which the centenary entity, which groups together the best Spanish artists, has searched for incredible and special spaces in which to display their works.

agenda

The hotels thus offer guests a stay among authentic works of the best contemporary art with all the comforts of a hotel of high standing. It is about offering the guests an unforgettable experience: being able to rest in magnificent facilities surrounded by precious works of art of the best artists of the moment.

The project now reaches its plenitude coinciding with ARCO and consists of the inclusion of different pictorial or sculptural pieces (depending on the facilities and available space) in the common areas of the hotel, so that it is possible to bring contemporary art closer to the greatest number Possible of people, giving the opportunity to guests and visitors in general, to interact with art.

The first of the exhibitions that served as a “pilot experience” took place on February 21 and has brought to ten hotels in Madrid the work of eleven of the best painters and sculptors of the moment, artists of recognized prestige, members of the Spanish Association Of Painters and Sculptors. Among the most outstanding pieces are two works by Auguste Rodin, spectacular sculptures of the Codina Casting that will delight the public in comparison with the avant-garde work of the painter Manuel Gracia, already consolidated in the national and international exhibition circuit.

Also worthy of note is the presence of the sculptor José Luis Fernández, author of the Goya awards statues or the Dalinian symbolism of Alejandro Aguilar Soria, disciplinary author ranging from the most classic works to the most avant-garde visual poetry, passing through the jovial vision of Sonia Home in destructured landscapes and the veteran colorist perception of maestro Ramón Córdoba, whose outdoor painting is well known in Spain.

The animal motifs of enormous strength and expression run from the hand of Güiomar Alvarez de Toledo, while the absolute finesse and the grandeur of the sculpture of Andres Lasanta, gives force to a composition that nobody will leave indifferent. So it is with the master Luis Javier Gayá, whose buildings in Madrid are the excuse to display an art so methodical and portentous that it astonishes with its formats and well-known views.

The watercolor is present thanks to the renowned Beatriz de Bartolomé, whose watercolors are recognized in the continuous samples that her art has been doing regularly, while also discover the collection of “Girls” that gathers in his work the artist Jesus Soler, in A reason studied, exercised and that serves as an excuse to unravel the peculiarities of his special way of understanding art.
