4th Quarter 2015

The paintings of Benigno Gómez erupt with color. His paradise on earth is clearly a tropical one. It is lush, crowded and diverse. His figures, women washing or girls playing, don’t just exist in the natural world; they form part of it. They blend in and out of their surroundings, sometimes difficult to distinguish.

Gómez was born in 1934 in Naranjito, Honduras. As a young man, he went to the capital to study the visual arts. In 1950, he was granted funds to study in Italy. His first show was in the Honduran consulate in Rome. In 1966, he returned home. He became a professor at the Escuela de Bellas Artes. In 1976, he won the esteemed Pablo Zelaya Award. Soon after that, the United Nations chose his Las Palomas (“The Doves”) for the UN postal stamp and invited him to show at UN headquarters.

OF WOMEN by Latin American & European Masters

Ford Fine Art will highlight WOMEN as the subject of all the artwork they are presenting this year at ArtSpot in the Spectrum Miami Art Show: paintings, sculptures, drawings and graphics. The exhibit is full of comparisons of early European genre paintings and portraits with those of Latin American artworks.

The gentle interior of women conversing by Edouard Vuillard is beside the animated watercolor of women selling pottery by Francisco Zúñiga.

The pen and ink drawings of nudes by Jules Pascin and George Grosz are alongside the drawings and paintings of nudes by Benjamin Cañas.

The thin bronze ballet dancer by Boukaulshalkov faces the full onyx figure by Felipe Castaneda. A portrait by Jean Dufy looks at a face by Carlos Cañas. The show honors women with children, women at work, at leisure, sitting, standing, looking out a window, only women…no men allowed.

Other masters featured are Andre Derain, Armando Morales, Rudolfo Abularach, Guillermo Trujillo, Elmar Rojas, Rafa Fernandez, Gustavo Montoya, Benigno Gomez, Siqueiros, Jose Cuevas, Sofia Bassi, Luis Martinez Pedro, Julio Zachrisson and contemporary masters Denis Nuñez, Marcia Salas, Enar Cruz, Alejandro Villalobos and Vladamir Cora.

An Evening of Art at Galeria Rancho Santana
By Verónica Fonseca, Gallery Manager

We are presenting one of our featured artist of the Gallery every quarter of the year. The next event will be in December 12th, 2015.

For the first event of the year, the talented Ma. Renée Perez exposed her most recent pieces. She delight us with modern collographs with a lot of character and nationalism. We also got to see her collages of Granada and the ocean made with recycled materials such as broken glass, metal doors’ pieces, shells from the sea, wood and more.

To prepare this event, we had to bring the artworks to the Gallery in advance. So, I had the great opportunity to visit Ma. Renée at her beautiful house full of nature, big trees, art everywhere and a warm welcome. There was one thing in her patio that called my attention the most, a sculpture. It was a man cutting a tree down with an iron cutter tool,

all the sculpture was made of metal. “Ironically, in the future we will have trees only made of iron and we will still be cutting them off”, Ma Renée explained.

To the event we had the presence of the guests of the Hotel and people living in the Rancho Santana’s community. One of the collages was sold and other artists’ pieces as well.

We are very excited for the upcoming event on December, where we will be having Augusto Silva with an air from the Atlantic Coast and his unusual paintings on gourds, jícaros and squash shells.
