Pintar + Iconos

Paint + Icons

PINTAR+ICONOS is a virtual exhibition and international art contest.
The guideline is the reinterpretation of a famous painting with one's own style, the use of a famous painter's style for one's own work current or a mixture of both options, with theme, technique and free style; organized by the plastic artist Ezequiel Orue.

The Artist GISELA GARCÍA-GLERIA (Argentina / Ig @ giselagarciagleria) presents us her Work «Cathedrals I«, from the Large Format Series», where using the artistic language of Peteer Neefs; plus the image of the sculpture «The Cathedral» by August Rodin.
Neefs was a Flemish Baroque painter, specialized in painting interiors of Cathedrals, and Auguste Rodin was a French sculptor, considered the father of modern sculpture.

Gisela herself tells us about her experience in PAINTING + ICONS:
«Pieter Neefs the Elder was a Flemish painter, his work dates from the first half of the s. XVII, specialist in interior architecture. His most frequent subject is the interior of churches and cathedrals, depicting both existing churches and imagined churches.
Many of Neefs's paintings were inspired by Antwerp Cathedral.
“The Cathedral”, previously known as “The Arch of the Alliance”, is a sculpture by the French artist Auguste Rodin, conceived in 1908. It shows two right hands belonging to two different figures, one with masculine characteristics and a female one, placed in such a way that they seem about to intertwine.
In my work I sought to capture this analogy, using the imposing and luminous interior of Chartres Cathedral as a background image, taking inspiration from the painting of the Interior of the Church of Saint Joris in Antwerp by Neefs, the viewer's gaze is placed in a perspective that directs towards the large rose window and, in an intentional transparency and levitation, a vision of the hands the sculpture by Rodin, slightly curved, joined at the ce Inside as a kind of vault, where the fingers evoke the ribs of the arches, pointing towards a superior center of confluence».

El arte celebra el whisky

Art celebrates whisky

Opening on World Whisky Day 2022, this exhibition features paintings by me dedicated to the world of whiskey and digital artwork by Guest Artist John Robertson (Scotland).

The exhibition was held at the Buenos Aires Whisky Museum, an English-style mansion in the Villa Urquiza neighborhood, where the first and only Argentine Keeper of the Quaich, Miguel Ángel Reigosa, keeps his personal collection of more than 4,000 bottles of whisky, the largest private collection in the world today.

World Whisky Day was created in 2012 by Blair Bowman, as a global celebration that invites everyone to enjoy the "water of life" and this year, from Buenos Aires city, the celebration was framed with works of art that also celebrate this spirit drink, its makers and production processes, from the creative vision of two artists with personal and distinctive imprints, like each of the whiskeys they honor.

Destilería Madoc: Un camino de Arte y Whisky entre Bariloche y Buenos Aires

Madoc Distillery: A path of Art and Whiskey between Bariloche and Buenos Aires

Life is about cycles, beginnings and closings, which are linked in the magic of meeting people and building bridges that bring us closer.
In 2020, during isolation, I had the opportunity to get in touch with Pablo Tognetti, owner and Master Distiller of Madoc, a distillery that produces one of the richest Argentine Single Malts, nestled in a dream landscape of Patagonia, in Bariloche.
As a result of our chats through the networks, the idea of painting the distillery, a great challenge and great satisfaction.
Today my painting arrived at its destination, closing the circle that unites the art of making whiskey with the art of painting it.
It will soon have its definitive place in the distillery's tasting room, but it fills me with emotion to see it between the stills, like a beautiful parable of time, art and spirit.

Bye. Goodbye.
Let go. Break off. Let go
Empty. Make room. Let the new come in.
Give the last brushstroke. Cover the bins. Close the knobs. Put away the pencils. Wash the brushes.
Sort the workshop. Empty the mind, and let it fill with other ideas, other forms, other colors, other dreams.
Look back. The last work rests on the easel. In the air, the smell of turpentine still stirs.
The heart clings to the lost. The mind looks beyond.
Look. Look with your eyes closed. Stretch out your hand. Feel the sun at your fingertips.
Feel the light tearing apart the darkness. Dance.
Dance as if it were the last time.

Walk. Retrace old roads. Rescue the beauty.
Dialogue with the Masters. Soak up their wisdom, their advice, their actions.
Feeding the soul. With its light, its shadow, its color.
Reaffirm concepts. Question truths. Rethink lies.

To love. Unloving and loving again.
Prolonging being, succeeding blood.
Being wind, being a river, being air, being a path.
Being a flower, being a tree, being a seed.
Crying . Be a drop of salt, and cry.

Plant. Sow the future with hope.
Doubt. Doubting the doubt and the perhaps, the possible and the impossible.
Doubting and not looking back.
Painting, fighting against oblivion.
Painting , dispelling mists and ghosts.
Painting until the eyes and back hurt.
Until the hands bleed
Until your self appears in the new canvas.
