This panel follows the beneficial cultural initiative which the Cursol Foundation carries through the exibition "HAIKU: invisible drawings" by valencian artist Nani Boronat. The goal of this event, which takes a place in the Mucic Hall, is to gather the finacial support for prostate cancer research.
Due to his vision of the HAIKU poetry we were able to improve our insight into the essence of the abstract art: "the works express a certain reality envisioned by the artist, but they are open to the viewer who is invited to complete them, and at that point poetry and painting are alike.
Boronat gave account of his exhibited drawings stating that they stem from his experiments with common materials and from playing with various techniques liberating himself from consciousness and leaving emotions to flow freely.
By means of this works, Nani, who has three decades of expirience in Europe and United States, moves away from dominant line of his prior work, large geometrical coloured painting, admiting: "I like to be between two streams cause as far as I´m dedicating myself to abstract I feel nostalgia for figurative painting.
From the point of view of the artist Ignacio Escobar, the exhibited works utilize a reduced amount of elements and colours to express profound feelings of the author, his vision of reality in the same way a poet employs the words to describe his emotions.
On the other hand, Jorge Sebastián, the art history professor of the University of Valencia has emphasized that the Boronat´s paintings are composed of expanding stains and volumes producing traces of the artist´s hand and intellect and craving for our active imagination. In his opinion we are dealing with invisible drawings cause there is a part of them which the viewer is supposed to complete.
The professor took advantage of the panel to accentuate the importance o these kind of cultural events such as this exhibition organized by the Cursol Foundation in order to familiarize art and education with the public needs.
The exhibition will stay open till November 1st in the Sala Lucrecia Bori in the Music Hall, and the paintings can be acquired for 280 euros each. The collected financial support is destined to research cancer project developed by the Cursol Foundation in collaboration with the Chemical Tehnology Institute of the UPV.
