CONNECTIONS - RAMON AULAR
Exhibition Dates: 25th April – 31st of May
Location: Contemporary Art Platform
Ramón Aular, born in Venezuela, has developed his artistic career between the United States, his place of residence, Europe and, in the last years, an important presence in Lebanon.
His compositions, with a predominant use of gold, are a metaphor of life. His surroundings, his desires, are a reflection of that indissoluble bond between his roots and what surround him. The use of color takes us to places of dreams, where everything is possible.
On the other hand, the work of embroidery, with these tiny, organic seams, is the representation of moments lived or in full process. Some open, closed or healing, as the artist himself points out.
His paintings are more than simple compositions or use of color, they have a spiritual connection. Its colors, its harmony, its brilliance and its greatness go beyond the fabric, they are connections between the artist and the spectator.
His works are the intimacy of the moment of creation, and the vision of the paths to follow. All are part of that divine creation that is what leads you to create and represent your idea of life.
When we see his work we also understand his soul, the love that transpires through each piece, in short, we see him … as a soul mate.
Ramón Aular Del Valle, was born in Valencia, Venezuela in 1979. Art has been his passion beginning at an early age where he was introduced to the work of Salvador Dalí and Oswaldo Guayasamin. His parents collected the work of both artists, Ramón was inspired by their colors, details, and dimensions.
