ART Oviedo 2023
ART Oviedo | XIII Contemporary Art Fair
This edition of the fair seeks to bring contemporary art closer to immediate and everyday reality. The aim is for ArteOviedo to function as “a toolbox”, borrowing the idea of Antonio Monegal in his book “Like the air we breathe. The meaning of culture” and that, through the projects presented by the galleries and the parallel program of workshops aimed at children and talks, both the professional public and the general public obtain these “tools” that facilitate notions, guidelines of analysis and systems of interpretation to resort to when approaching contemporary art with an open mind.
We participated in ARTE Oviedo, XIII Oviedo Contemporary Art Fair, with the S olo Project “Encounters on the Horizon” by the Asturian painter Alba Escayo .
"Encounters on the Horizon" where art, the sea and symbolism are intertwined in a unique dialogue. A visual and emotional journey through a reflection on the Sea, exploring the intimate connection between humanity and the ocean.
In the center of the stand, we find an installation formed by a volume-painted boat sail that stands as a beacon of beauty, radiating the essence of the sea, as well as fishing nets. On a side wall, the works on paper from the "Ports" series reveal the poetry of the places where man and the sea converge. Escayo works with old transferred photography, words and symbols to tell the story of the interaction of man and sea. On the wall opposite the pieces of paper, we find small pictorial pieces of a ship's sail.
"Encounters on the Horizon" is an artistic experience that invites you to explore the deep connection between man and the ocean, where poetry is intertwined with memory, painting and symbolism to tell the story of life on the shore and the eternal dance between human beings and the sea.
