“We only are the print we leave behind“. Artist statement
From March 19
Between the immensity of the natural worlds that Paul Jáuregui (b. New York, 1965) carves or sculpts in his textured paintings inhabited by small human figures, and the graphic works in which he anthropomorphizes several species endemic to Galapagos and frogs from all over the world, there appears to be an abyss. However, independently of the difference between both aesthetic languages, there is a subterranean thread that ties these diverse practices to the awareness of the unity between the erect animal, the other species, and the Earth. His search, always open-ended and in permanent transformation, involves inducing through his art an experience that puts an end to the illusion of separation and extends the vision that it is not possible to destroy any realm without jeopardizing our own.Jáuregui titled this series eARTh & i as "a form of personal decontamination to find a direct line with education and thought transformation.” Adriana Herrera, PhD. Co-founder Aluna Art Foundation
At the present time, Jauregui is the Artist Ambassador for the Galápagos Islands through the Charles Darwin Station. He is also involved with the Reach Inside Out Foundation in the United States helping to bring awareness of Autism to the world. This foundation with Paul’s creative help is developing programs which use art as an avenue to foster and cultivate talents of individuals affected by this cause.
Paul Jauregui has showcased his private work worldwide. He was selected to represent Ecuador, his homeland, in 2006 at the 10th Cairo Biennale exhibition. In 2007, he was chosen ABSOLUT ARTIST for the International Ad Campaign Absolut Connections., in 2008 he launched a Conservation Art show name RanasanaR in the prestigious museum of Centro Cultural Metropolitano in South America.
Connoisseur, collector, advisor, and private art dealer Ninoska Huerta, formerly the director of the Exhibition Hall of Petroleos de Venezuela in Caracas, specialized in Kinetic Art, Constructive and Optical Art, moved to US in 2011 where she is acting as private art dealer, providing also advisory and collections management services.
Ms. Huerta is a leading expert on the work of such kinetic artists as Jesus R. Soto and Carlos Cruz Diez with whom she worked directly in Paris and Caracas since the 90s. In 2000, she published “Soto and the Scripture” conjugating the literary excellence of Venezuelan writer Arturo Uslar Pietri with Soto’s poetic line of vision.
Ms. Huerta also focuses upon private sales in the secondary market placing historical works by selected artists as Jesus R. Soto and Carlos Cruz Diez, and also by other contemporary kinetic artists such as Yaacov Agam, Rafael Barrios, Genevieve Claisse, Saverio Cecere and Dario Pérez Flores, among others, working closely with collectors to place important works of art from Latin America and France.
