Dedication The VIDART Silent Art Auction and Digital Catalog is dedicated in honor of all cancer survivors and Nueva Vida’s Founders whose passion and principles to culturally appropriate cancer support services among the underserved Latino community has led to equitable access to state-of-the-art cancer care and essential survivorship support.   As always, the breast cancer survivors continue to inspire us as they endure to strive, thrive, hope, overcome and triumph in spite of the numerous challenges and barriers they face. Their victories offer daily inspiration to Nueva Vida.

Nu e va V ida Over twenty years ago, Nueva Vida’s founders saw the tremendous need for culturally sensitive and tailored cancer support services to the Latino community. Their vision was founded under the belief that no physical, financial, or structural barrier should impede comprehensive and quality cancer support. Nueva Vida grew from grass-root beginnings; and over the past 20 years has provided outreach, education, preventive cancer screening, patient navigation, psychosocial and mental health support. As a communitybased non-profit organization dedicated to providing care to the Latino immigrant community, Nueva Vida has informed, supported and empowered Latinos whose lives are affected by cancer.   During the last twenty years we have addressed some of the gaps in obtaining health services, mostly due to a lack of access to integrated cancer care, cultural barriers, limited English proficiency, low socioeconomic status, lack of formal education, and lack of a proper social support network. Nueva Vida has not only identified the multiple barriers that face our community, but it has furthermore identified the need to persevere through it and never give up on the life of any of its clients!

VIDART Welcome to VIDART, a silent auction and benefit cocktail reception in celebration of twenty years of cancer support services; as we honor and hail the cancer survivors and caregivers. Because "art is a wound turned into light"* sixty-six (66) international, local and national artists from eighteen (18) countries with more than one hundred (100) works are joining Nueva Vida in this benefit to continue providing programs to the Latino cancer community. Their tremendous generosity in sharing their art can permeate the very deepest part of us, where no words exist.    On behalf of Nueva Vida’s Board of Directors and the Nueva Vida Team, we welcome you to the beautiful Art Museum of the Americas for an evening of art, music, cocktails and hors d'oeuvres. We thank you for the kindness and generosity you show as you bid on this extraordinary art collection.  *Georges Braque

Jorge Cabieses

Jorge Cabieses (Lima, 1971) has recently arrived at a turning point in his art through the adoption of a constructive art stand in his development of an abstract proposal in painting. He had already achieved a prominent position in the Peruvian contemporary art scene by 2005, through a consistent practice of appropriation of magazine images, technical drawings and illustrations from manuals and booklets through silkscreen procedures. The interplay of this material allowed him to represent rapid cultural change and to allude ironically to Western notions of progress at work in Peruvian society. He studied painting in the School of Fine Arts "Corriente Alterna", and graduated with a golden and silver medal in 2000.  H e h a s p a r t i c i p a t e d i n n u m e ro u s c o l l e c t i v e exhibition: Resistances (Casa de America 2003), "Selected Works" 2nd Biennal of Engraving, Peru ( 2 0 1 0 ) .

and journals, including: The New York Times, The Boston Globe, The Washington Post, The Baltimore Sun, Philadelphia Weekly, The Washington Times, Washington Review, Art & Antiques, Articulate, Home & Design. Hsin-Hsi Chen is known for her exquisite, illusionary pencil drawings on unique complex constructed 3D forms of paper and wood. Chen’s initial mission was to use only these basic materials and see how far they would take her. Her recent work has evolved beyond 3D drawings to include a variety of scales, two/three-dimensional work, large-scale/full-room installation, and collaborations using 3D modeling/printing and interactive digital projection. Chen assembles new work that considers the space as a site where light, shadow, space, drawing, and discovery merge. Chen disorients viewers with actual and imaginary planes of drawing, light, shadow, illumination in illogical sequences of complex 3D structure, installation and interactive dimension - to present h e r i n t e re s t a n d v i s i o n i n r i d d l e d p a t h s o f existences, the unknown of the universe, surreal, geometric and architectural constructions. The untouchable and invisible time overlaps the unpredictable occurrences and growth in space as the light illuminates those mysterious elements and source of life. The shadow within reflects its subject as the soul to the human being.

female portraiture series called Photo Therapy, where I aim to capture one’s spirit in a personal shoot that builds confidence and releases inhibitions. My subjects are women. They stand before my camera exposed, timid and vulnerable.  I relate to them.  I am one of them.  I work to tell their story--to capture their soul.  To disclose something that isn’t always comfortable. I tell their stories through photographs--it’s how I see the world, how I see their story, how I relax enough to let them see me first. I am a strong believer in giving back, I donate my time and a portion of my profits to human rights organizations. When you purchase one of my pieces, you can look at it knowing that you too have made a contribution. I support organizations that fight to end crimes against humanity, end genocide & empower women.’

Jeremy Flick

Jeremy Flick was born in 1981 in Cincinnati, OH and lives and works in Washington, DC. Adapting m i n i m a l i s t s t r a t e g i e s a n d a h i g h l y c o n t ro l l e d approach, Jeremy Flick’s sculptural canvases are characterized by their formal precision, a systematic approach to form, and strong command of color. Through the use of repetition, symmetry/asymmetry, and overlapping geometric forms, Flick’s minimal compositions evoke multiple depths and perspectives allowing for multiple interpretations and meanings. In his commitment to abstraction, Flick’s practice is on one hand very much rooted in traditions of painting, but is also heavily influenced by digital innovations in influencing the ways we

To m H i l l

I was born in Washington, DC and raised in Prince Georges County, Maryland. I attended the Maryland Institute, College of Art and the University of New Mexico, where I received a Bachelor’s degree with concentrations in art and architecture. Following school, I lived and worked in a variety of geographical locations before settling in New York City. I lived in New York for over 20 years, working as a fine artist and supporting myself through a variety of art-related jobs that included art handler, nightclub decorator, theatre set and prop designer, decorative and mural painter, graphic designer, and artist’s assistant. In 2001, I moved back to Washington, DC with my partner and have lived in the area since. My childhood in DC was infused with keen interest in the civil rights and anti-poverty movements, and, as a teenager, I became closely aligned with anti-war, feminist, and gay liberation activism. As an adult, I have had strong identification and ties with LGBT, reproductive rights, and HIV/AIDS activist movements. 

I have been in long-term recovery from addiction since 1992. A major outgrowth of my recovery and activism involved the pursuit of a Masters in Social Work in community organizing from Hunter College in NYC, awarded in 1997. Since then, I have worked with grassroots community groups across the country to develop peer programs and advocacy agendas that promote recovery and battle discrimination.   Since I have been in recovery, my work has evolved with newfound sense of purpose and focus, becoming more fused with my activist experience and more directly incorporating feminist and queer sensibilities. In my recent work, I have combined these overriding concerns with a love of paint and glitter, lurid colors, appropriated images, and accompanying text. I use painting to explore personal and political aspects of my life in a context of pop art and culture, creating works that are bold and serious with an edge of irony and humor.

endless challenges and vocabulary. As a painter, I am most attracted to times of day that express change and to portraits that attempt to capture someone expressing their humanity. I also am drawn to landscapes that evoke a sense of biological memory. It’s my hope that these pieces evoke an individual’s interpretation, enabling them to create their own experience, feeling, and meaning of my work.

Roberta Rocha

Roberta Rocha is a Brazilian plastic artist, with a BA in Architecture, Urbanism and Journalism and a Master’s degree in Social Communication Studies from the University of Brasília. Her first artistic insights are associated with her visit, as a child, to the architectural ensemble of Pampulha, a modern urban project in Belo Horizonte, the Brazilian city in which she was born. During that visit to Pampulha, she concluded that art would be a relevant part of her life. She spent most of her life in Brasilia. The contrasts between the modern city architecture and the austerity of the Cerrado (savannah) influenced her artistic outlook from the beginning. She would walk through the Cerrado area searching for sticks, stones and small objects, spending hours creating small statues and fixtures with such materials. This habit continues since now wherever she may be. The two Works (Femina Flux 5 and Femina Flux 16), exhibited by VIDART, are part of a series called “The Feminine: The Fan and the ‘I’ that Commands It”. To create these pieces, Roberta meditated on the memories of so many women that came before her. Women in her own family. Women she has only read about. Stories of resistance, of faltering. Stories of war and of peace. Love stories. In search of a way to ex p re s s h e r re fl e c t i o n s i n a v i s u a l l a n g u a g e , s h e

experienced a creative and alchemic process in its various phases: precipitation, ebullition, dissipation, condensation, expansion. The result was the integration of emotions and physical materials. Shapes were recreated, reproducing aspects of life and nature. Everything spreads out as water moving with wind upon the surface of the glass. The internal “I” can be seen in the mirror. It can see its own colors in connection with nature, therein discovering its similarities. Her works are featured in private collections, in Brazil and other countries of the Americas. She is very proud to have been invited by the Brazilian Master Lívio Abramo, at a young age, to participate in the collective “Painters of Brasilia”, at the Centro de Estudos Brasileiros, in Asuncion, Paraguay. She has participated in collective exhibits in Brazil, Mexico, Spain and Uruguay. Her work has been shown in individual exhibits in the Gallery of the Central Bank of Brazil and the National Postal Museum, in the gallery of the Caixa Econômica Federal in Brasilia, as well as in the Art Gallery of the Biblioteca Nacional in Uruguay.  She currently resides in Washington, D.C.

Fabian Ugalde

Fabian Ugalde (Querétaro, México, 1967) after having studied at La Esmeralda (INBA), Ugalde showcases his paintings in different museums, cultural spaces and university forums both in Mexico and Europe, Asia and South Africa. His work has been recognized with awards such as first place in acquisition at X bienal de Pintura Rufino Tamayo (2000), first place in acquisition at 3er. Salón de Octubre, Great Prize Omnilife (2001) and second place at 3er Concurso de Instalación Ex Teresa Arte Actual. His work has been granted support by the ministry of exterior relationships and the French ministry of culture. In 2001 he received the PollockKrasner Foundation scholarship in N.Y.; in 1999 he won the young creators scholarship of the FONCA. In recent years, Fabian gives courses in bidimensional production, sculpture and engraving at the National school of painting, La Esmeralda in México, where he resides. The biggest challenge for an artist of Ugalde´s generation, who initiated his career at the end of the XX century not only consists in afírmate a distinctive proposal in times where globalization has

homogenized the cultural identities in the artistic world, but to conquer the “peripheral” condition of Mexico against the “center” governed by Europe and USA, gained by international art fairs, and these in turn sustained by Neo and post constructs and theories. Hence that the questioning of factors by which some of the works of art of the second half of the XX century acquire an iconic character, had been assumed by Ugalde as the central matter of his work, and, in a certain way by his generation. Some of the works of art that entered to the museum in the last decades of the XX century, and that where recorded in the collective memory for its media attraction, are for Ugalde signs of his time, j u s t a s t h e m e c h a n i s m s o f t h e o f fi c i a l t a s t e configuration that characterizes his historical moment; in the same way that the works of Michelangelo, Da Vinci and Raphael were the paragons of the Italian renaissance and this at its time configured the western world back then. However, given that most of the art works that Ugalde “puts in evidence” where already criticized as banalities of the consumerism society, his own criticism would be redundant.

reproduction of Van Gogh’s peasant that hung in my grandfather’s study in Chevy Chase DC. A strong presence stared out at me. Inviting me to converse and join the creative journey – the artists life. Early trips to the National Gallery of Art, the Museum of American Art and later the Hirshhorn informed my world and became an integral part of my creative DNA. In the past few years, this engagement with history, books and records have become an active and more conscious part of my creative work. Journals, stories of artists but also the physical mark that on paper that expresses and emotion and communicates to the viewer.”

Jordann Wine

Inspired by sacred geometry, Jordann Wine draws on classical forms and patterns in her work to reference mathematical concepts that reflect the wonders of the universe. Working with the golden ratio, fractals, and gradients these geometric abstract paintings, drawings and murals connect to notions of deep space in time, as well as deep space found in meditation. Floating, falling, fading and unfolding patterns of triangles and circles mesmerize the viewer, evoking contemplation of the infinite. Seeking order out of chaos, and interrupting rigidity of order with slight imperfections in the repetition is central to the meditative nature of her practice and to the solace it intends to bring out in the hand-drawn imagery.    Along with her work in drawings, paintings and murals, Jordann has evolved her practice by introducing glitter. Glitter, commonly dismissed as an ordinary craft material, is elevated to a painterly standard as she foregrounds the material’s inherent qualities of holding and releasing light. Making use of the medium’s full range of iridescent, opaque, and translucent color qualities, she transforms the childish or garish reputation of glitter into a reflective cosmic field. Reflective surfaces instinctually remind people of water, the element most critical to survival.

Glitter’s shimmering surfaces, reminiscent of light hitting water, attracts the viewer into the work, evoking the appeal of both the movement of water as flow and the introspective quality of water as stillness.  She holds a Bachelor of Arts from New York University; where she studied Sustainable Entrepreneurship in the Gallatin School of Individualized Study and minored in Studio Art. She continued her education at the Aegean Center for Fine Arts in Paros, Greece. Currently, based in Washington, DC, she has had solo exhibitions at Honfleur Gallery, George Mason University, and Strathmore Arts Center, as well as many national and international group exhibitions. She has murals throughout DC, Maryland, New York and Jamaica, working with among others: the DC Commission of Arts and Humanities, POW! WOW! DC, Conrad Hotel, lululemon, and JBG. Her work has been purchased for private collections, including recent acquisitions for the permanent collections of DC Commission on the Arts and Humanities Art Bank, L o c k h e e d M a r t i n , F a i r m o n t H o t e l , M o n t e fi o re Hospital, and Booz Allen Hamilton.  She was a 2019 recipient of the DC Commission on the Arts and Humanities Artist Fellowship grant.
