Getxoarte 09


El fin de semana pasado estuvimos un rato dando una vuelta por Getxoarte. No todo iba a ser hacer calendarios... Pero en esta ocasión fue un poco decepcionante, con una repetición de estilos que en otras ediciones estaban mejor ejecutados y, en general, un conjunto del que destacaban los más maduros, los que ya han encontrado su voz propia. Muy pocos. Pero haberlos, había, aunque pareciesen esconderse entre la torpeza e ingenuidad.

Last weekend we went for a stroll at Getxoarte (young talent artist local fair). Not everything I did was making calendars... It was rather dissaponting this year, a repetition of styles which had been better carried out in previous editions. To sum up, a group of artists where only the more mature stood out, those who had found their unique voice. Very few. But they were there, although they seemed to be hiding amongst the ingenuity or clumsiness of others.

Me encanta esa segunda foto de las dos princesillas mirando esas enigmáticas personas enmascaradas.
Pasa un buen fin de semana.

The grey hues of the pictures are cool.

Las palabras de la primera foto... como me llegaron! dejar de ser valiente un tiempo, a ratos, o solo un momento.... dejarse acurrucar por otro "valiente" que se haga cargo, sentirse protegido, que las soluciones las planee y realice un otro... alguna vez....

Alice said...

Concuerdo con Jorge... una visión crítica muy clara y bién descrita. También tu trabajo tiene una constancia y desarrollo profesional admirables. Felicitaciones!

Well, your pictures of the show make it look wonderful! What did the girls make of it?

Always worth checking these things out, though, as there may be gems to discover. Sorry there were no real gems for you this time!

Jorge, Ciara, I must point out there were a few artists worth checking, but very few. In past editions I walked around feeling overwhelmed by the talents shown. Not this time though. And I thought thta the good ones would stand out, but they were kinda hidden or so it seemed to me.
