Featuring the work of acclaimed Spanish Artist Giner Bueno
Show opens with an artist's reception with Mr. Bueno on October 12th from 5-7pm.
The show will run through November 2nd
Giner Bueno was born in Godella, a town along the Valencian coast of Spain, in April of 1935. Bueno received his passion for painting from his father, Luis Giner Vallas, who was a distinguished landscape painter. At the age of twelve, Giner was given watercolors and oil paints so that he could join his father and his friends while they painted.
Giner became an exceptional impressionist himself. His talen matured as a student at La Academia de Bellas Artes of San Carlos in Valencia and then later in Paris. During his lifetime, he has participated in over fifty shows and has received countless awards. His paintings are exhibited at the Municipal Archive Museaum of Valencia, the Museo Real Maestranza de Caballeria de Seville, the Florida Museum of Hispanic and Latin American Art and in private collections all throughout Europe and the United States.
All of Giner's influences can be seen from his studio, which is situated above his house overlooking a garden. He comments, "It is difficult for a Valencian painter to escape the luminosity of our land, to escape its color and its contrasts. I am captive of all that and in my paintings I try to reflect, within the Impressionistic school, the joy of our beaches, of our festivals and of the life of the villages in the interior of our arid and rugged Valencia." Bueno reflects the daily diversity of beauty in his countryside's natural light and color through sweeping brushstrokes of pinks, purples and blues: "My brushstroke is vibrant, nervous, temperamental, always impregnated with the Valencian school that defines the authentic and true masters such as Sorolla, Pinazo or Navarro, for example. Giner Bueno defines himself as a painter of vitality.
Gallery 901 is very proud to host this Spanish master in what may be his last major exhibition in the United States.
