Exhibition of paintings by Miguel Ángel Concepción at the School of Art ‘León Ortega’
The León Ortega de Huelva Higher School of Art and Design hosts this Friday, May 5, at 7:00 p.m., the opening of the exhibition ‘Je suis ton pére (I am your father)’the most personal and unexpected collection of the well-known artist from Huelva Miguel Angel Concepcion, since these works were not created to be exhibited or to form part of his artistic career; they are part of the most intimate landscape of his home that today are shown in public at the express will of the project curator, a professor at said educational center.
The sample is composed 20 portraits of his daughter Olga Marina Concepción Zarandietapainted year by year from the very beginning of her life to the present, sequentially reflecting both her growth and, indirectly, the artist’s artistic evolution throughout these two decades of prolific creative work.
We can see the protagonist of the collection, the daughter of two well-known artists and a student of higher studies in Dramatic Art in Malaga, growing frame by frame, always with a serene look and complicit with her father, without filters or postures, lovingly, exposed today intentionally in the context of an educational center with a student body that is around the same age.
In contrast to the great individual exhibition that Miguel Ángel Concepción presented last September at Casa Colón, these are works with a strongly personal nature that have not been carried out with the aim of being exhibited or marketed, as they belong to the most private sphere of his life. Portraits charged with sincerity and delicately executed, which gives the collection an enormous value of authenticity and a sentimental charge beyond any doubt, being a work that escapes economic or professional interests that could be related to the artistic practice of a creator of such a long career
There are 20 works that project emotion and paternal-filial love, that speak to us about the passage of time, growth and the passage of life. Veracity, affection and a look detached from any interest completely pervade this interesting series.
The exhibition can be seen from Friday 5 to Wednesday 31 May 2023. Visits: School days from 11:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. and from 6:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m.
