De la serie Dibujos Hidrónimos Río Paraná (Argentina 41%, Brasil 35%, Paraguay 24% ) pintura sumergida/madera ... From the Hydronym Drawings Series Parana River (Argentina 41%, Brasil 35%, Paraguay 24% ) submerged painting/wood ... MERIDIANO 80 OESTE NG Art Gallery XIII Bienal de La Habana ... “Hidrónimo (del griego ὕδωρ hydor, ‘agua’, y oνομα ōnoma, ‘nombre’ ) es el nombre con el que se designa una masa de agua. Hidronimia o estudio de los hidrónimos incluye el modo en que las masas de agua adquieren su nomenclatura y éstos son transmitidos a lo largo de la historia. La pervivencia de los antiguos hidrónimos es muy apreciada por los paleolingüistas ya que constituye un recurso eficaz para reconstruir lenguas desaparecidas, sus extensiones o posibles rutas migratorias de determinados grupos humanos. ... Dibujos realizados mezclando dos técnicas ancestrales de pintura sobre agua: la Suminaggashi, japonesa y la Ebru, turca... técnicas me permiten enfatizar el carácter libre e incontrolable de un curso de agua. Cada obra es única, ya que el patrón que se produce al sumergir el papel o la madera en el agua nunca se repite, depende de la forma en que los pigmentos hagan contacto con la superficie líquida.” .... “Hydronym (from the greek hydor, “water”; and onoma, “name” ) is the name given to a mass of water. Hydronymy or the study of hydronyms include how water masses get their nomenclature and these are transmited through history. Survival of ancient hydronyms is highly appreciated by paleolinguists since it is an effective resource to reconstruct extinct languages, their extensions or probable migratory routes of certain human groups. ... Drawings made mixing two ancient techniques of painting on water: Japanese Suminaggashi and Turkish Ebru... techniques that allow me to emphasize the free and incontrolable character of a water current. Every work is unique, since the patron obtained by submerging paper or wood into water is never repeated, it depends on the way pigments make contact with the liquid surface.” . . . #ngartgallery #bienaldelahabana #rafaelvillares #estudiorafaelvillares #hydronymdrawings #dibujoshidronimos #cubanart

#repost @van_biennale Join us in welcoming another new artist-in-residence! Rafael Villares joins us in a few days for a 10-week residency in Vancouver for our 2018-2020 Vancouver Biennale exhibition, "re-IMAGE-n". . . . . . . Rafael Villares is one of Cuba’s most exciting young artists. Villares has recently completed his study at the famous Instituto Superior de Arte, Havana, Cuba. Villares’ work holds its own with its innovative concepts, approaches, and utilization of materials. Often starting out as an installation with performative elements, his artworks develop into whole projects and series spanning a range of mediums, such as sound, drawing, paint, and photography. Villares’ lyrical installations playfully engage with their surrounding environments and in so doing form a constant reference to the belief that our relationship to nature is the key to a creative process. @villaresrafael participated in the last three Havana Biennials and his work has been exhibited in Europe, Asia, Latin America, and the U.S as part of group exhibitions. Some of his most recent solo exhibitions include Tierra Incógnita, NG Art Gallery, Panama City, Panama, Divergence: Liquid Paradigm, Factoria Habana, Havana, Cuba, and Echo´s morphology, Galería ARTIS 718, Havana, Cuba. Special thanks to our partners/sponsors: @translink , Cultural and Scientific Services, @neekoo_philanthropic_society , and @canembfrance Stay tuned for more updates on our "re-IMAGE-n" exhibition.
