Dacia Gallery is pleased to present “Celebrating Life: Four artists from Europe” curated by Stefania Carrozzini, with opening Thursday December 2, 2021. On display twelve works by artists from Spain, Holland, Italy and Finland.

The title reflects the desire to return to life, to celebrate it, an invitation therefore to a daily thanksgiving through art and creativity, an exhibition that aims to be the start of a different way of understanding and making art, in the deep conviction that they can sow the seeds to give birth to a new way of seeing the world and things and to promote a perceptual renewal. The urgency is that of an artistic operation that touches reality, an individual expressive urgency that contrasts the dehumanization of the world, artistic practice as an encounter with our true nature.

We are witnessing an ever-faster process, and in more fields, which leads to the progressive distancing from the human, as functional beings to a system that wants us to be homologated and slaves to a single thought. This scenario must be replaced by art as a territory of truth and freedom, Art possessed by love, Art as spiritual evolution and sensorial sublimation, Art as a celebration of nature, everyday life and dreams.

All the works that are part of this exhibition are a sign of physical and spiritual rebirth through the language of emotions, an invitation to a world of hopes, of intuitions of comparison between new techniques and more traditional ones. Just as there are words that, by resonating, expand the listening space, so it happens with forms. The forms and narratives that meet in this exhibition lead us to make a visual journey which makes us understand how powerful our imagination is. This exhibition has a multidisciplinary approach and aims to also reflect on the need to explore new languages and not to forget that life as artistic talent is a gift that must be kept so that the being does not lose its humanity.

During the opening night of Thursday December 2, the book “Art on Alert” by Stefania Carrozzini, Publishing House Timia, Rome, 2021 will be presented. The volume (256 pages, two languages Italian and English ) brings together the curatorial projects of the author from 1994 to 2021 with the covers of the catalogs and introductory texts of exhibitions held around the world, most of which took place in New York.

Mar Delestal is a Spanish artist who lives and works in The Netherlands.

Her canvases are characterized by the use of color to give shapes, using only oil and sometimes combining it with more contemporary techniques such as aerosols and collage. Her work also includes works on paper. She studied at the Santa Isabel de Hungary University in Seville, Spain and at the Athens School of Fine Arts, Greece. Her work is a constant evolution of composition and colour. Her origin and formation are within a classic education. As an art student in Spain and Greece, she learned the basics of traditional drawing and painting: light, colour and composition. Her vision changed when she moved to the Netherlands, where she faced other artistic currents that made her think about how to represent reality. She abandoned realism in painting. She uses her experience and knowledge to create her personal world. The background is important and she plays with it to make it a prominent part of the work. The colour reaches prominence and opens up new possibilities for creation. Each brush stroke, each layer of matter becomes an exploration with which she can give shapes and sensations of solidity, transparencies, weightlessness. The colourful composition is the characteristic of her work and has become a personal stamp. After years she returns to realism with her first series of portraits called “Memories”. She keeps playing with the backgrounds but focusing on the expressions. From now on she has a new challenge in her work: to study and to deepen the capacity of human beings to transmit feelings.
