LOVE IN THE TIME OF CORONA
The UK-based, Colombian artist Miguel Amortegui presents his Exhibition " Love in the Time of Corona."
Using vibrant colours and intense brush strokes, Miguel paints the humanity and hope of the marginalised and misunderstood, and, in his own words, “…the complexity of us humans and our lives — our feelings, our traumas, passions, sadness, hopes, and constant search for love and happiness. — filling each stroke with all the colours these feelings have to offer.”
This exhibition is inspired in Gabriel Garcia Marquez, Master piece "Love in the time of Cholera" portraying amongst many characters the eternal struggles of Florentino and Fermina.
The work on this exhibition is accompanied by literature from different Latin American poets as Mario Benedetti, Pablo Neruda, Jaime Sabines, Eduardo Galeano, Oliverio Girondo y Miguel Amortegui.
Amortegui’s work has previously appeared at St. Ann’s Warehouse indoors — and in a different medium: the theater presented photographs from his book Voices of The Jungle in a group exhibition that accompanied the Good Chance/Young Vic/National Theatre/St. Ann’s Warehouse production of The Jungle.
