The latest exhibition from Esperanza León
's ArtSolar, a Hamptons-based collective that highlights emergent artists from Latin America, with a special focus on contemporary art and design from Venezuela, will debut at Brown Harris Stevens
' Bridgehampton office on Saturday, April 21. The pubic is invited to a celebratory reception that will take place from 4 to 6 p.m.
"The synergy between art, design, architecture and real estate is stronger than ever," said Christopher Burnside of Brown Harris Stevens. "BHS is proud to present the people and places that make the beautiful homes we sell possible."
When Art Finds Its Home - Line, Colour, Form: Place
will encompass works from Gustavo Bonevardi, Darlene Charneco
, María Schön, and Aurelio Torres.
Bonevardi earned a degree in architecture from Princeton University. The artist often finds ways to incorporate letters of the alphabet "in plays of structure and chaos" throughout his drawings, watercolors, sculptures, and paintings. Bonevardi's large-scale urban projects include the Tribute in Light
memorial - which was developed in 2001 and is illuminated each year in New York in commemoration of September 11th - the Ten Thousand Flower Maze
in Shenzhen, China, and TWO
, a sculpture in Lower Manhattan.
When Charneco, who is based in Southampton, works on her pieces, it often brings her to a near-meditative state. Her intricate pieces feature structured patterns and codes of all proportions - from specks to detectable matter to the galaxies. Her work is inspired by "concepts and feelings that arise." It delves into the unknowns of language and sensory observation.
Schön, who was born in Ann Arbor
, Michigan and grew up in Baltimore, Maryland, resides in Sagaponack. Her paintings focus on large scale fantasy vistas that allude to human figuration, many of which were inspired by her time spent in her parents homeland
, Venezuela. While studying film at NYU
, she was named an "Academy Fellow" to the Academy of Motion Pictures, Arts and Sciences. Her works can be found in the collections of Mayo Clinic, Citibank, Johnson & Johnson, and corporate and private collections in Indonesia, Italy, England, Venezuela, Mexico and the United States.
Torres, who was born in Montevideo, Uruguay, comes from a family of artists. He was raised in New York City
and studied for many in Barcelona, Spain with his uncle Augusto Torres, a classically trained painter. His father, Horacio Torres, was also an accomplished classically trained artist and his grandfather was the acclaimed Modernist Master Joaquin Torres-Garcia. Torres prefers to create in natural, outdoor surroundings. The East Hampton-based artist focuses on plain air seascapes, recycled wood assemblages, and works that explore the subject of war.
