The art exposition “Character and Color” is from Cordelia Urueta, a Diego Rivera contemporary….
MERIDA — The Diego Rivera Mural Museum seeks to spread the art of Mexican muralist contemporaries of Diego Rivera in Yucatan, with the exhibition “Character and Color, by Cordelia Urueta”.
The exhibition will be in the Great Mayan World Museum of Merida, Yucatan, until January 7, 2018.
In the framework of the VI International Festival of Mayan Culture, the exhibition shows the various stages of the artist Cordelia Urueta, who after leaving the Mexican School of Painting, developed new plastic languages focused on abstraction.
Thus, in her work can be distinguished the interest in color, atmospheres and textures, which allowed her to reflect on reality and identity. In this way, the painter left the abstraction to develop compositions that reveal their concern for dehumanization, violence, repression and the destruction of nature.
The issues that troubled her were also a consequence of the war episodes that she lived from childhood with the Mexican Revolution and, later, with the Second World War.
Under the curatorship of Luis Rius Caso and Erika Contreras, the exhibition “Character and color, by Cordelia Urueta” is divided into three thematic axes. In the first part, entitled “Atmospheres and Emotions”, shows the artist’s interest in abstractionism, far from the impositions she found in the Mexican School of Painting.
The second part named “The poetics of color” develops the way she synthesized the elements that built her work to the point of abstraction, to discover a language that is expressed through color and organic forms.
The third part “Sensitive forms” presents the pieces made in their initial stage, where a figurative language with nationalist elements, such as the rebozo and the lush landscapes of the national territory, stands out.
