After some quiet days, spending time with friends, going to the movies (I strongly recommend you go see "The King's Speech"... Excellent and with performances to win all Academy Awards) and reading good books, I went out to see a couple of exhibits at La Barra.
In Le Club, by the beach of the Posta del Cangrejo, is that of Eduardo Pla, who is really a great contemporary artist. His exhibit is very interesting and worth going to visit it.
On Le Club's top floor I was taken to see a young artist, unknown to me, but not less talented: Maby Rod.
Maby is a professional photographer who, guided by her love for fashion, has achieved a truly personal technique, creating photo-paintings. Over pictures taken by herself, she paints using make-up instead of traditional materials. That is to say that blacks are achieved using eye-liners, reds with lipstick, beige with compact powder, and so on.
The result is really amazing, as you can tell by the picture of a work of hers that I publish here. She also creates truly original hand-painted dresses.
A nice discovery!!
(For those who will be asking... my dress is a Tibi).
