An unprecedented show with works by the most influential artist in Venezuelan and Latin American sculpture stands out amid the most recent exhibition programs at Wynwood Arts District. With great enthusiasm, Ascaso Gallery opens up this coming Thursday July 2 at 6:30 pm. The exhibition entitled FIGURES, FORMS AND VOLUMES by the consecrated painter and sculptor Francisco Narváez. Important personalities from the art world inside and outside Florida have been invited to the inauguration.
In close alliance with the Foundation bearing the artist’s name, dedicated to the preservation, conservations and documentation of Narváez’s legacy, Ascaso Gallery presents a full tour of his bi-dimensional and tri-dimensional oeuvre, with 129 pieces exhibited encompassing 50 years of his vast aesthetic production, witnessing the evolution of his forms and the transcendence and influence of his work in the continent’s contemporary art.
The selection of the works exhibited in Miami by Ascaso Gallery between July and October chronologically summarizes Narváez’s graphic and sculptural work. Drawings, inks, watercolors, charcoals and pastels are included, as well as sketches made with pencil on paper, collages and ensembles. The retrospective show also features imposing wood and stone reliefs, stuccos—a technique in which the artist fuses different expressive languages—and the extremely complex volumes elaborated on stone and bronze.
No person related to the artistic activity, especially from Latin America, should miss Francisco Narváez’s exceptional exhibition entitled FIGURES, FORMS AND VOLUMES in Ascaso Gallery, located at 2441 NW 2nd.
