Accent Alternative Art Space invites you to experience “Sala da Pranzo” an installation by Nicolás Leiva, this Saturday, May 21st.
Art is an invitation to share an artists’ point of view; his/her sense of beauty, pathos, angst, or horror — think Soutine, Lautrec, Munch, Bosch, etc. Nicolás Leiva’s installation, “Sala da Pranzo” at Accent, invites the viewer to find the inner chi.
“One day my prayers were answered. I awoke in this dazzling place – where everything is magical: plants, animals, fairies — all in communion in this enchanted geography; a place set aside for divinities and angels. I ate and went for long walks in its gardens. There I found all that I needed to transform my life. I return every day since” – reads the artist’s statement.
The full-gallery installation includes a “buffet table” set with ceramic pieces inspired by Leiva’s dreams of other-wordly environments.
Ceramist, painter, sculptor and graphic artist, Nicolás Leiva’s has applied his transformative art to …motorcycles, cars, delicate ceramics, guitars, found objects and canvasses. He is participating in the “Base Paint” project for Haiti by designing a tent to be used as a school.
Leiva is a graduate of Argentina’s National University of Tucuman school of art and has shown extensively in Europe, South America and the U.S. His work features in collections and museums throughout the world.http://nicolasleiva.wordpress.com/
