On November 06, 2015 from 7-10pm, Canale Diaz Art Center will open “Forms of Stillness”, a curated exhibition that assembles Heriberto Mora’s most recent paintings and sculptures.
In “Forms of Stillness” Mora continues his relentless quest for spaces of spiritual peace, while retaining a masterful use of luminosity that not only has an effect on his formal compositions, but that also constitutes a powerful element of his language. In turn, the show reveals the emergence of “white paintings” as a new marker in the artist´s career, where the intensity of light covers or radiates forms with a transcendental vision. Mora conceptualizes with his works “a connecting meadow between the mundane and a vision of that which is sacred”, said Adriana Herrera Tellez, curator of the show.
The exhibition devotes a significant portion of the space to sculptures made in wood, metal and various other materials with which Mora defies the restrictions imposed by the medium, as they not only cross-reference the metaphysical universe of his paintings, but they also pose as open doorways to contemplate the world´s immateriality given their three-dimensional shape.
On display until December 13th, a week after Miami Art Week, the exhibition will be open from Monday to Saturday from 10am to 6pm to those who would like to become acquainted to or rediscover Mora´s work. On the opening night, a reception will take place in the presence of the artist.
Heriberto Mora has had over two dozens solo shows throughout Panama, Puerto Rico, Spain and the United States, as well as numerous group exhibitions. He is the recipient of multiple prizes, such as the “Jim and Connie Houser Award” granted by the Society of the Four Arts in Palm Beach, Florida. His works are part of important public and private permanent collections in Argentina, Colombia, France, Mexico, Puerto Rico, Spain, the United States and Venezuela.
