Ricardo Gil´s exhibition Organic Arte” in Centro de Arte Los Galpones ends
Until Sunday February 1st will be displayed the exhibition Organic Arte in room G15 of Centro de Arte Los Galpones, where Ricardo Gil presents a group of pieces that ingeniously combines art and nature.
Founder of Aqua-Rego Corporation, Ricardo Gil has worked over almost two decades on the development of irrigation systems in ornamental areas, gardens, squares, sport facilities, monuments, highways, avenues, garden beds and vegetal walls, with a landscaping vision through which he reflects his passion for the vegetal world that has surrounded him since his early childhood.
Based on his knowledge on agronomy, alternative techniques of food production (hydroponics and organic farming), landscaping and ornamental agriculture, Gil presents this exhibition “Organic Arte”, a selection of pieces seeking to inspire interest on nature on the beholder and raise awareness on his relationship with environment, as he explains.
Following the opinion of Ricardo Bello, professor, writer and researcher on visual arts, Ricardo Gil’s work holds a spiritual and psychological dimension that surpasses the architectural and engineering realms. “It entails the aspect of mental health he proposes when embellishing houses, buildings or public squares with a reality that very few of us take for granted: beauty.”
According to Bello, artists have always tried to represent the inherent beauty of a landscape through traditional means, such as painting and photography, but Ricardo Gil goes beyond, “he decides to incorporate nature in urban spaces, exacerbating and empowering those places where the city grows, proposing a reflection on the environment that belong to us and that we deserve… The balance and sound judgment in his proposal reaches us without any apparent effort because it is the indisputable evidence of the need of this kind of works that heighten and enable the pursuit of a life full of esthetic blessings.”
The work of Ricardo Gil can be appreciated this year until February 1st at room G15 of Centro de Arte Los Galpones, located at Av. Ávila con 8va, transversal de Los Chorros, from Tuesday to Saturday, from 10:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. and Sundays from 11:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. Free admission.
