EYES IN™ Magazine Editor-in-Chief Vivian Van Dijk enjoyed a nice art exhibition from EYES IN™ Magazine Featured Creator Jorge Posada at the beautiful Midtown apartment of artist and host Melcina Rosas.
"I was very delighted and happy to admire new beautiful and impressive work from artist Jorge Posada at the exhibition. EYES IN Magazine has featured Posada's work in the past with an extensive interview and as fans if his work follow his exhibitions. The current works are also stunning and you can see a great development following the signature elements from this inspiring artist." Vivian said as she reflected on Jorge's brilliant new exhibit.
Jorge Posada is a painter, print-maker and sculptor whose art has evolved into a semi-figurative depiction of the body: a cross between figuration and abstraction. He works by series in a mixed-media of charcoal, acrylic and oil on canvas and paper, which address the human form in motion. Posada creates a tension between the fragments of the body which are embedded into colors, textures and carefully applied transparencies, and the compositional structure. He places them in a pictorial geography occupied by arrows which he uses as a metaphor for the action of going blindly in every direction.
Colombian-born American Jorge Posada lives and works in New York. Currently he divides his time between NY, Medellin and Antwerp, Belgium, where he has started a new series of drawings and paintings as an homage to the masters from whom he draws inspiration. "In my intention to be part of a collective memory, I use the human form to explore the body and the rituals of violence which are very much present in our global society.
Jorge Posada's extensive education includes: Lighting and Sound, LaGuardia College, New York (1999), Printmaking (traditional and new methods), Lower East Side Printshop, New York (1990-96) Water base printmaking, Water Base Workshop, New York (1995) Printmaking techniques, Taller de Artes Medellin, Colombia (1978) BFA in Visual Arts, University of Antioquia, Medellin, Colombia (1975).
