Story as Art: Illustrations by Danielle Valdes Jimenez
May 1-June 30, 2017
Art on Barcelona is pleased to present our newest show featuring work by UU Santa Fe member Danielle Valdes Jimenez.
In Story as Art, viewers will be taken through the universe to learn how the colors were born, according to the indigenous people of the Chiapas area of Mexico. Originally created as a book to gift to her young daughter, this delightful series of acrylic paintings on watercolor paper, including text in both Spanish and English, answers the questions to why the moon is pale, why skin comes in different shades, and how all the colors came to be. Enjoy! Disfrútalo!”
Also on display are other manifestations of our universe, The Seasons, a series of four papier mache masks depicting spring, summer, fall and winter.
