Light and Shadow. Ventoso Group

Duality, rhythm and dynamic equilibrium are concepts present through opposed but complementary forces, like light and shadow.  The abstract character looks into accentuating the formal aspects, generating an autonomous language where the visual and tactile experience is presented as a class of irreducible knowledge.


Ventoso is a group of artists moved by the necessity to manifest and develop concepts.  The heterogeneous quality of its members with regard to their formation, gives each piece of work an enriched look.  In a few years their works have been exhibited in prestigious art fairs and national and international galleries, as well as becoming part of many private collectors.

About Us

Art Nouveau Galeria was founded in Maracaibo, Venezuela in 1987 by Elizabeth Hazim de Castillo and in 2010 they opened a branch in Wynwood, Miami, known as Art Nouveau Gallery with her daughter in law and partner Georgina Chumaceiro. The gallery features modern and contemporary art focused on the geometric abstraction art, widely explored in Latin America, and ranges from emerging and mid-career artists to major historical art figures such as Cruz Diez and Jesús Rafael Soto.

These artists have exhibited widely in museums and institutions in Venezuela, but for many mid-career Venezuelan and Colombian artists, Art Nouveau Gallery contributes to achieve international recognition, and they are regularly included in art fairs including Art Miami since 1998, FIA Caracas since 1997 and The Armory Show since 2012.

Art Nouveau Gallery works directly with their artists, coordinating exhibitions in the Venezuela and Miami galleries. Art Nouveau Gallery supports public art projects and publications, such as the Rafael Barrios project, where together with The Park Avenue Fund and the City of New York Department of Parks and Recreation, Venezuelan artist Barrios will install 9 Sculptures in Park Avenue New York from 51st St to 67th St, from March to June, 2012.

Since its inception the gallery has sought to reveal challenging links that connect recognized modernists and younger artists from across Latin America, and to explore these relationships in monographic and thematic geometric abstraction exhibitions that bring such work to ever growing audiences in the United States.
