"Oscar Araripe: An American Springtime"
2005-03-10 until 2005-03-30
Solange Rabello Art Gallery
Coconut Grove, FL, USA United States of America
Oscar Araripe is a thief in white gloves. Accordingly it is a mystery that he utilizes a vast array of colors in his pallet. Looking at this Brazilian artist's paintings we discover Paradise, that Paradise, whatever people say, where we have never been. This Paradise is found in a butterfly that slips softly through the immensity of a blue sky, however, as everything which is essential, it is invisible to our eyes. Oscar Araripe's An American Springtime exhibition is on view at Solange Rabello Art Gallery in Miami through the month of March.
Oscar Araripe ( www.oscarararipe.com.br ) was already internationally recognized and acclaimed as an important Brazilian writer, educator, and social and ecological activist well before he turned his talents to painting. With almost 100 exhibitions to his credit, Araripe continues to reinvent the art of painting, not only through his spontaneous and unusual brush strokes and colors, but also via his use of unconventional materials ranging from delicate tracing paper to large-scale public works made of weatherproof synthetic canvases (nautical sail) supported by sturdy tubular structures.
