International Artist Series: Juan Antonio Guirado Through Feb 18, 2018
Coral Gables Museum, 285 Aragon Avenue, Coral Gables, FL 33134
Marking 85 years since the birthdate of Juan Antonio Guirado, and 61 years since the artist last exhibited in Miami, the Guirado Estate presents «Beyond the Landscape,» a specially curated series of his stunningly visual works to celebrate the Andalusian Intrarealist master painter.
Juan Antonio Guirado’s first exhibition took place in 1956 in Miami and he immediately experienced success. As a result, he would travel the entire world with his art. He sought new and seductive paths to explore which lead to his Intrarealist work. When asked to describe intrarealist painting, Guirado replied: «it is the type of painting that one has to see with the third eye, the eye of the mind.»
A mix of Surrealism and Abstract Expressionism, Guirado’s work challenges the viewer to open their mind and eyes, to look within, and evaluate the reality of their surroundings.
