Santa Cruz Carnival through the eyes of 50 artists
Sala L of the Centro de Arte La Recova in Santa Cruz is hosting a collective exhibition of paintings and sculptures whose common theme is the Carnival festivities.
The show , “El Carnaval Chicharrero”, brings together for the fifth consecutive year the works of numerous artists who have captured the various aspects of the most popular parties on the island, from characters, masks and costu-mes, to curious and fun situations that occur in the streets, not forgetting acts like the burial of the sardine.
The exhibition, which includes approximately 50 paintings made with different techniques, including water-colors, oils, acrylics and mix-ed media, stands out for its great colour and vivacity that convey the joy of the parties, making the viewer feel participant. On this occasion, two sculptures will also be exhibited. The works are mostly figurative, using different styles, from realism to illustration drawings, expressionism, naive, and so on. Some artists have also chosen to convey their vision of the parties through abstract creations.
Many of the paintings pre-sented have been specially made for this exhibition, in which almost 50 artists of various nationalities are taking part, with a wide range of ages, from young people under 20 to over 70 years.
