WELCOME

To make art is to go beyond the protective cloak forged by the emotions, is to erase its effect and confront the abyss. To enjoy the art is to be able to discern, even if only for a moment, that deep calling towards the abyss and come out transformed. If the artist is like a gardener who sees his flowers blooming and the artwork is like a flower that does nothing else but to manifest itself, to enjoy that manifestation without resisting it is an act of humility that makes us grow. The creative act is to search for the seed, exploring the abyss, peek into the chasm, and share that journey. That is why it can be said that the artist confronts the mystery and, when he does it, lives his trance. And Loona Contemporary tries to propose this mystery through the works of the selected artists. Claudio Fiorentini

CONTRASTES URBANOS
SASENJO

Javier Sanz's work has gone through many phases and is constantly evolving. For this exhibition, entitled CONTRASTES URBANOS, we have selected some of the artist's most recent works, where the figure appears deformed, as if it were filtered by a wet surface which, in some way, represents the layer that separates the real world from dream world, in which straight lines disappear, giving space to a dynamic vision of reality. It is from this creative phase that the artist signs himself SAsenjo.

 

The exhibition will be open to visitors from November 20th to December 2nd 2023.

 

​We will open on November 23rd and, from 6.30 pm, the artist will be with us to meet his audience and to talk to anyone who wants to know more about his work.

In his exhibition, Flamenco Series, he represents, with his art, the delicate gesture of flamenco dance.

“Nordic Vision”

From May 6th to May 19th, we will be hosting the work of the Swedish artist Ake Törnqvist. Form and color are disciplines that aim to find inner peace and translate into harmonious strations, symbol of the exploration of the dream world, and extend, through gestures of profound sweetness, into the hardness of marble and the chromaticism of the canvases. From there arises the poetics of the "form" stripped into a "non-form" that is freed in representations of the musical flow of events and of life itself, challenging the laws of reason to dance with the forces of the Cosmos.
