message from the director

mensaje de la directora

It gives me great honor to welcome you to the opening of our invitational exhibition, International Biennale Artists MIAMI, the last show of 2010 and a special presentation of 46 renowned artists from 17 countries.

Es para mi un inmenso placer y un verdadero honor darles la bienvenida a la exposición International Biennale Artists MIAMI, el ultimo evento de la galería durante el 2010 con la presentación especial de 46 destacados artistas de 17 países.

My primary objective as director and chief curator of Nina Torres Fine Art is to honor artists whom have been previously selected to exhibit at the Biennale d’Arte di Firenze (Florence Biennale).

Mi objetivo como directora y curadora de Nina Torres Fine Art es honrar a los artistas que han sido previamente seleccionados para exponer en la Biennale d’Arte di Firenze (La Bienal de Florencia).

This exhibition features artists who represent the following 17 countries: Austria, Brazil, Canada, China, Colombia, France, Germany, Ireland, Israel, Lithuania, Mexico, The Netherlands, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, The United States of America, and Venezuela. In addition, many of the participating artists have been awarded with The International Lorenzo the Magnificent Award in various categories and distinctions. We would like to extend our sincerest thanks to our sponsors, the participants, curators and all of those who in one way or another contributed to the success of this exhibition which transcends geographic boundaries in order to partake in the dialog of art in the United States. All of these artists will undoubtedly leave their mark during Art Basel Miami Beach, when all eyes are on Miami.

En esta exposición encontraremos artistas de 17 países representando a: Alemania, Austria, Brazil, Canada, China, Colombia, España, Estados Unidos, Francia, Irlanda, Israel, Lituania, México, Los Países Bajos, Suecia, Suiza y Venezuela. Adicionalmente, muchos de los artistas participantes han ganados el premio Internacional de Lorenzo el Magnifico en varias categorías y distinciones. Quiero agradecer muy especialmente a los patrocinadores, participantes, curadores y a todos aquellos que de alguna manera contribuyeron para que esta exposición tenga especial trascendencia como vía de difusión en los Estados Unidos, abriendo para todos los artistas participantes, nuevos horizontes durante la semana de Art Basel Miami Beach, cuando todos los ojos del mundo del arte estan puestos en Miami.

artist biographies AL WILDEY USA Images from this series are created by compositing hundreds of documentary photographs of a journey. Opacity adjustments create a composite image where camera details dissipate and meld to produce an image with faint traces of each photograph, creating an impression of the cumulative journey. The synthesis of layered images on aluminum reveals and conceals information allowing the composite to become a powerful metaphor and, like the reflected light from the image surface, encourages us to reflect on our individual, often symbolic, journeys. ALICIA H. TORRES Colombia-USA My work contains the beauty and the admiration of the world. I follow in my abstraction the path of life and its elements. My goal is to express emotions in my paintings where they become a language to communicate with the spectator. My soul is left in every work of art, inspired by the simplest things in life and the grandeur of creation. I was born in Colombia, and studied in Barranquilla at Marymount School. I spent four years in Switzerland, where I studied art history. I graduated with a degree in psycho-pedagogy at the Corporación Universitaria de la Costa. I now reside and live in Miami, Florida. ARACELI SALCEDO Mexico Born in Mexico City, Araceli Salcedo had her first encounter with art after obtaining a degree in Interior Design. Expanding her studies through workshops in both the United States and Mexico has lead Araceli to experiment with different techniques in painting. Araceli has participated in over 30 shows including Fusion in México City, The International Fair of Frankfurt, and also selling her artwork in international auctions. She has been published in international art books including the International Artists Catalogue, 100 Contemporary International Artists (Belgium), and the European Community Library of Artists. In 2006 she started her own painting workshop and today, she is a well-known artist with a personal and unmistakable style and hallmark. BARBARA HARDMEIER Netherlands-Switzerland “Philosophical questions always cross my mind. I’m always refreshing and purifying my expressions of art. How can I touch and inspire people? Artists can play a crucial role: all expressions of art possess the possibility to reach and touch the heart of people and connect them to each other, however different they may be.” Hardmeier studied audio-visual design and painting at the Gerrit Rietveld Academy in Amsterdam. Her work has been shown in prestigious international exhibitions such as the World Art Vision in Mexico and the WAV in Cancun, Mexico with upcoming exhibitions in Switzerland, Germany, Austria, Spain, and Japan.

BEATRIZ MOYA France-Spain Ce fut un long parcours avant de faire cette Rencontre… Fusion passionnelle avec la matière. Après la peinture a ètè pur moi une Renaissance… En 1995, j’intègre l’ècole d’Arts Plastiques Martenot durant cinq ans. Actuellement, je poursuis ma formation artistique à l’université Paris 1 – La Sorbonne/ St Charles. Mes inspirations, je les puise dans mes origins latines, dans mes voyages, mes emotions, mes découvertes. Mon chemin, on le découvre, on le perd, on l’aperçoit, on le suit de l’intérieur. Mon âme guide mon pinceau qui y depose une empreinte. Incontournable. Chemin de l’homme, chein de vie. A l’infini… BRONWYN TOWLE USA Chinese born and raised in Hawaii, I am a working artist and full time art teacher at an independent school in Palos Verdes Peninsula, California. I received an Associate’s Degree from Pasadena City College and attended Chouinard, as well as the Otis Art Institute. Being an intuitive painter, I rarely start off with a plan, using anything at hand- brushes, sticks, and fingertips. My work is largely abstract and figurative with layers and splatters of intense color that create texture and energy. My recent exhibitions include Torrence Art Museum, 2008, Faculty Group Show, 2008, South Bay Watercolor Society, First place, 2008, and Palos Verdes Art Center Holiday, juried exhibition, 2009.  CECILIA DEL TORO Colombia-USA Born in Colombia, she is a versatile artist who masters oil painting, jewelry and metals, pen and ink, glass, ceramic and porcelain painting. Cecilia was a Colombian surgeon who moved to the United States in 2003 and traded in her surgical equipment for an artist’s tools. In 2003 Cecilia moved to Rockville, MD, where she received a AA in Arts and Sciences at Montgomery College. A key feature in Cecilia’s work is her love of painting faces, and the use of light and color. “Light and color are particularly important to me”, explains Cecilia, “because they reflect the inner self, along with my intense love for nature and all its creatures.” CHRISTINE DRUMMOND Brazil The exotic scenes and vivid colors that characterize the paintings of Christine Drummond highlight the expressive abandon of an artist working in her natural element. Drummond creates gatherings formed of brightly colored figures standing, walking, carrying loads on her heads, or dancing enthusiastically. It manifests in all aspects of the work- the hues, themes, tones, and movement- a crescendo to a climax of shimmering life. Her main inspiration is the city of Rio de Janeiro in Brazil, where she grew up, and her paintings emphasize the sense of optimism and confidence in the people. Drummond continues to exhibit widely, and produce works marked by fantastic color, texture, and happiness.

DEBRA VAN TUINEN USA My work is not an exact representation of the landscape but rather, the landscape evokes emotions and thoughts within myself and others. My intent is to create a reverence for the landscape, the earth, and a consciousness that it feeds us physically, emotionally, and spiritually. I respond to that energy and spirit in my work. Art is my life- all that I experience and see becomes part of my work. The way my environment effects me is the essence, the soul, of my work. EDMUND IAN GRANT USA Edmund Ian Grant is a self-taught, award-winning artist who resides in Napa Valley, California. His artwork has been shown in New Orleans and many of the top galleries in California, such as the Dyanson Gallery in Carmel, and the Vorpal Gallery in San Francisco.

His work is in international collections and he has participated in many solo exhibitions. He has also been the artist in residence at both Pat Kuleto’s Kuleto Estate Family Winery and Jessup Cellars in Napa Valley. EDUARDO CHIRINO Mexico Life in every aspect sprouts from the artwork of sculptural ceramist Eduardo Chirino. Currently living in Miami, Florida, he illustrates in every piece the integration of his various cultural experiences. This prolific young ceramist  has produced a wide variety of forms: totems, vases, and plates that evoke Pre-Columbian cultures. Human faces emerge from the wall with stoic expression; geometric compositions hanging from the ceiling remind us of the universe and the solar system; murals of various shapes and sizes depict the artist’s perception of the Earth and its elements. Eduardo is capable of a creative process with a keen sensibility. Under his charm, clay becomes an element of infinite possibilities.

I would walk through his house, a large stately building, and felt and saw what art could do. I remember a sweet, almost heady scent dominated the house. Enjoying the art there, flowing through the great arteries of the house, became a source of great inspiration for me. Three years ago, I allowed myself to be challenged by canvas, brush, and knife. I recognized the scent again and have continued painting ever since. I have no formal training. This is my style, not bound by laws or rules. I want to dedicate all of my art work to my dear Klaas, Eva, and Emma. EMILIA GARCÍA USA Emilia García was born in Los Angeles, California. Her journey began on her grandparent’s ranch in the small town of Piru, California. It was in Piru that her grandparents raised her while her parents worked to provide for the family. In 1996, it was her grandmother’s death and love of art that drove her to leave the corporate world and immerse herself in her artwork. A visual artist, Emilia expresses herself through the beauty and culture of her indigenous roots. “I try to convey images that speak of strength and love through family and celebration all the while focusing on the spirit of women. Although my influence has been from the great Mexican Masters, my inspiration comes from my grandmother’s love and her presence within me. It is through the closing of her eyes that she has opened my eyes to the reality of what I have become.” ESTHER WERTHEIMER Canada Born in Poland, she has lived most of her life in Montreal but studies and works all over the world.

K-Soul has collaborated with the artist Ruben Nuñez, inventor of holokinetic technology. “To understand the poetic reality of the spiritual world, it is necessary to acquire knowledge and a delicate perception of living forces,” He has reinforced this philosophy by working as a mountain guide, therefore developing a unique artistic approach based on the experience of extreme situations.

Socially responsible?” is primarily about her concern of human relationships amidst an increasingly globalized society that brings us closer through communication but is divisive through cultural and ideological conflict. The hardness, form and brightness of diamonds in the painting refer to a process that is formed under pressure. Furthermore, diamonds have a connotation of conflict when put in the context of Sierra Leone. Pink is the feminine presence whose sweetness and energy make the difference in today’s world.

MATT ANZAK USA Matt Anzak’s artwork ranges from figurative to landscape to non-objective abstraction, that explores a variety of media, techniques, and subject matter. Expressionist techniques like action painting became a layer in the artistic process of plasticity, while automatic writing provoked both an intense interest in symbology and a newfound interest in the art of the ancient world. Anzak’s current artistic focus examines the Hermetic Arts and the narrative of cosmic creation as illustrated by the Vedic culture of India, and by the ancient Egyptian, Greek, and Mayan civilizations.

PAOLO GELB Austria Painting is my own opportunity to express my feelings and longings, my deepest wishes, my fears, my tears and laughter, my soul and my heart. Colors are giving me the possibility to realize these concept, combine them like a puzzle and materialize them in my artwork. Where do I start, where do I finish? Literally, I am exploding and enjoying it! There are thousands of possibilities. Let your heart be free. Thoughts are free. Freedom can get a true dimension by painting. When we paint we express our life, our love and our soul, then we can say, it is art… Our Art…

MIRIAM AROESTE Mexico-Canada Mexican-born, Vancouver artist Miriam Aroeste conveys her inner journey through life in the medium of painting. Her abstract themes explore a universal understanding that transcends gender, race or subject matter; it is deliberately inclusive and open. Her paintings are ultimate explorations of line, color and gesture. The meditative quality of Aroeste’s work goes beyond any specific association, her abstract compositions invite to create a spiritual plane for the viewer to reflect and she hopes to achieve an emotional response, which is not conceptual, but something felt on a more instinctive level. Aroeste has exhibited in both solo and group exhibitions in Canada, USA and France. She has been involved in the arts for over 20 years in many different capacities. Her work is held in collections in Canada, the United States, Mexico, Israel and Italy. PALOMA BERNALDO DE QUIRóS Mexico She is a self-taught artist, born in Mexico. The strength and the presence of ancient bull representation linspired the artist. The abstracted image of the bull is a recurring theme in her work. The simplicity and the mysteries of the Altamira, Lascaux, Las Flechas, and the Chauvet caves inspired a new stage in which she now recreates the basic nature and colors. She is constantly finding new ways to express this idea through textures; using her hands to create images with metallic elements like copper, and gold leaf.

ROSALYN ENGELMAN USA My work is concerned with color, process and emotion. It reacts to internal and external stimuli. Within paintings, sculpture, and installations, I try to reveal the Essence: not the Thing, but the essence of the Thing. Creating art is a magical experience: at times painful or exhilarating, always a magnificent obsession. It is rewarding to see my efforts in private collections, universities and museums; most memorably, being invited by Gabrielle Kirk McDonald, President of the International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia, to paint frontispieces for Volumes I and II of Substantive and Procedural Aspects of International Criminal Law, The Haigue, Netherlands. It is the first publication of its kind. SEDA BAGHDASARI USA “I hope to capture the essence of beauty in our world, connecting the viewer to the higher realms of humanity. Aiming to see with the eyes of the heart, for rising above the struggles of everyday life. Let us walk the path of beauty now and educate our children by example.” Seda is a visualist – painter, photographer, and designer and is an active philanthropist who travels the world using her artwork and energy to help disadvantaged populations in Armenia and abroad. Recent solo exhibitions include: Beauty of the Land (Ararat Center, Los Angeles, 2009), HeartWork- Art of Love, Love of Art (Chocolatebox Gallery, Los Angeles, 2009).
