Swiss Art Gate UAE together with Almira Fine Art and Emirates Palace present Equus & Folium by Bernardo Nieves and Daniela Carletti, an exhibition with large scale horse paintings and digital paintings of leaves at the Mezzaluna restaurant in Abu Dhabi’s Emirates Palace. The exhibition will be open to the public daily 12.30 to 7 pm until 10 March 2018.
Bernardo Nieves is one of the most recognised artists in Venezuela. His work carries a distinct signature style focused on examining and conveying myriad forms of an equine figure. His works have been widely exhibited at home and abroad, including Europe and the USA. Bernardo is an artist, who initially sought his inspiration from nature and spectacular local landscapes. However, today Bernardo’s work is entirely dedicated to continuous exploration and mastering of the magnificent Equus figures. These spectacular floating horses, originally of earthy ocher colours with long and thin limbs, have become an integral part of Bernardo’s world. For years, these horses have earned the hearts of people who have seen horses as a symbol of elegance, pride, loyalty and manhood.
Daniela Carletti’s nature paintings have a magical quality. Her paintings are imbued with a magical innocence, a naive love of the past, with nature and place, her pictures a series of delicate impression of animals and insects, birds and flowers, grasses and leaves, each a mystical exposition of the cycle of life round her hometown of Ferrara in Northern Italy.
There is nothing remarkable in these paintings rather it is the converging of stylistic forms that gives them grace, each picture a commingling of a graphic aesthetic distilled through a painterly eye. Colour and line bringing a mystical quality to her images and leading us into a magical wonderland of long summer days and autumn walks.
