The Valladolid Experience in Spain. International women’s Art Exhibition.

 

First time ever in Valladolid and in Spain, I didn’t know what to expect!
A whole new world to discover and like a child I was eager and excited to discover a new world.
Had absolutely no clue as to what was in store for me!

Some of the images here give you an idea as to how the opening of the show looked like.
It was in an old historic building where King Felipe was born.

A huge crowd gathered at the opening and there were endless amount of talking and talking…
I wondered if people were there to socialize or to see Art.

But Life is always taking you by surprise. I sold both my paintings on the very night of the opening!

2011-03-25 11th salon International de L
Parc Channot, Marseille
www.siac-marseille.fr

Hufreesh has been selected to participate in the 11th International Salon of art in Marseille, France, from the 25th of March to the 28th of March 2011.

An exhibition that will be rich in discoveries of talent and original creations.

The objective of this 11th edition remains intact. Present a rich palette of talented artists. Submit a cohabitation that sharpens critical thinking and maintains the curiosity of visitors. The diversity of styles and accomplishments is of interest and the SIA 2011 is no exception to this requirement.

Oils and watercolors, mixed media and collages. Sculptures in marble, bronze, iron, wood, composite materials and their recovery will take place as mosaics and photographs.

From figuration to abstraction … From naive to the singular art … From the symbolic raw art … All these techniques and trends complement each other, collide, combine to create a kaleidoscope of color where ever, the turning driveway, the public is bored and tired. Everything is a pretext for discovery and wonder.

This year they will be 170 exhibitors including 168 professional artists representing 19 countries (Algeria, Belgium, Benin, Brazil, Bulgaria, Spain, USA, France, Great Britain, Guinea, India, Italy, Japan, Mexico, Netherlands, Portugal, Czech Republic, Tunisia). Through their works, these artists offer us their perception of the world. Visitors to open their eyes and exploring their world …

2011-01-01 Interview of the recent show
A chat with Hufreesh at her recent show in Pitanga, Auroville

By Sebastien Cortes

Hufreesh’s pieces are the result of a layering of techniques and experiences, which broadly sway from the colour- intense abstract to the post-figurative psychic detail. The viewer is challenged to enter a world filled with poetic nuances of colour, which can be read on various levels. Each work stands as a testament to Hufreesh’s continuous search for a balanced end point – that equilibrium which she hopes to satisfy and declare as an attitude. A style.

Some of the works are enriched by very personalized use of the frame – the frame as an integral part of the art-object and not only a decorative support. The frames give relative spatial movement and dynamics to the canvas, adding a visual strength, which is interesting and brave. A possible reference to Frank Stella, albeit much reduced in size and, as such, in impact.

The show is filled with many new starting points, which Hufreesh admits result from stimuli absorbed during her recent visit to the Florence biennale and assorted workshops, where she felt emboldened to reach out across new borders. The works have been assembled with elegance and a clear visual strategy, which helps the viewer to consider the body of work as unified. The chromatic energy is also achieved with a true sense of exploration that is bold and interesting.

The soothing atmosphere of Pitanga seems to attract many Auroville artists. It was in this enveloping atmosphere that Hufreesh and I explored the elements of her show.

Sebastian: Tell me about your artistic “process”.

Hufreesh: “I explore different techniques and allow them to guide me in an unconscious way…. colour and form also unfold in a similar way – without much premeditation. Even the figures that appear are all part of a very unconditioned effort – elements just fall into place…. this is what I enjoy about my work. I avoid any mind intervention.

S: Do you contextualize your work to any genre or style?

H: No, I take a technique as far as I can with the element of chance and not belonging to any label. The only container I consider is that which ascribes my work as abstract but I feel limited even by the materials and I’m still searching for a voice.

S. Is your art spiritual?

H. I don’t label it as spiritual that is up to the viewer.
