Bye!

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.
Bye.
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.
Bye.
Painting.
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.
Bye.

Del amor y otras pandemias

About love and other pandemics

In the context of the global pandemic by COVID -19 and preventive social isolation, the only way to continue enjoying art exhibitions turned out to be virtuality.

Initiative, curatorship and production of the Argentine plastic artist Darío Zilberstein, in collaboration with Paula Orlando, the «About love and other pandemics» call brought together 57 artists who share our art in a virtual space, showing our productions most recent produced in quarantine.

This exhibition was born from our need to share our expressions through our works, resignifying a virtual space of art that gives the exhibition a framework of belonging through montage.

The exhibition is set in a digital reconstruction of a new space, where I share the virtual space with excellent artists, artists that I value and admire for their artistic quality and for their warmth as people.

My work «The Hug» (5:33 ′) is a representation of the intimate connection between two beings, two souls, two identities that are shared in a conjunction of feelings.

An artistic expression that describes the sensitivity of a moment of peace, the one we long for, the one that purifies the spirit and rests, for a small fraction of time, that lasts forever in the memory.

Reflections by Paula Orlando and Darío Zilberstein about art and artists.

 

Art is born from our pupil inward, it is subjective perception.

Art is the vehicle that allows us to express what cannot be put into words. Art appeals to our emotions and connects with us on a deep level.

Painting is a state of being, every good artist paints what he is.

No great artist sees things as they really are, if he did he would cease to be an artist.

Art doesn't have to be pretty, but it does have to be meaningful.

We might think, what is art for? Art gives hope to life, beauty is important because this generates hope. Art makes us less lonely, makes visible the pain that one carries inside, serves as consolation and identifies us.

Art is the transmission of the sensations of what the artist has experienced throughout his life. You don't just take a picture with a camera, and you don't just paint a picture with a brush. Behind the act of creation are all the images you have seen, the books you have read, the music you have listened to, the people you have loved.

The beauty of a work of art is closely linked to its ability to stimulate our emotions.

The role of the artist is to ask questions, not necessarily answer them.

Art is only for those who are willing to put forth the effort necessary to understand it.

Outward

Initiative, curator and production of the Argentine plastic artist Darío Zilberstein, the call "Outward" brought together 53 artists who share our art in a virtual space, showing our most recent productions produced in quarantine.

This exhibition was born from our need to share our expressions through our works, resignifying a virtual space of art that gives the exhibition a framework of belonging through montage.

The exhibition is set in a digital reconstruction of a new space, where I share the virtual space with excellent artists, artists that I value and admire for their artistic quality and for their warmth as people. 

Without art, the harshness of reality would make the world unbearable. (Darío Zilberstein)

Desde Adentro

From inside

In the context of the global pandemic by COVID -19 and preventive social isolation, the only way to continue enjoying art exhibitions turned out to be virtuality. 

Initiative, curator and production of the Argentine plastic artist Darío Zilberstein, the call "From Inside" brought together 47 artists who share our art in a virtual space, showing our most recent productions produced in quarantine.

This exhibition was born from our need to share our expressions through our works, resignifying an art space that was and continues to be our own: Arteme. The exhibition is set in a digital reconstruction of the space where I participated in many art exhibitions with artists that I respect and value, for their artistic quality and for their warmth as people. 

Turning towards oneself, knowing and studying oneself, taking care of oneself and being friends with oneself, linking the gnothi seauton with the epimeleia heautou, turning the gaze towards a new way of seeing the world and showing oneself to the world. "From inside"…
