SCULPTOR ANGEL ORENSANZ BRINGS TO PENZA HIS WORK WITHIN THE YEAR OF SPAIN IN RUSSIA AND RUSSIA IN SPAIN
This coming Friday August 5th Spanish sculptor Angel Orensanz will officially open a retrospective of his work in three halls of the Savitsky Regional Picture Gallery (Penza) that will run for a month. The region’s arts officers, those of the Spanish Embassy in Moscow and the Spanish Ministry of Foreign Affairs’ officers plan to fill the gallery halls with the work of Angel Orensanz.
His sculptures, multimedia installations, photographs and video art will be displayed in an organic reinforcement both conceptual and visual. The wealth of media, concepts and materials that Angel Orensanz brings to the Savitsky Regional Picture Gallery conveys a sense of total, unparalleled harmony. Orensanz’s work resonates quite well with the inner tradition of the Russian Revolutionary Art.
The Director of the Museum, Dr. Valery Pavlovich Sazonov and the Cultural Attache of Spain in Russia Dr. Javier Larrache will introduce the exhibition. Dr. Valery Pavlovich Sazonov has curated and installed the Orensanz exhibition that occupies large expanses of the Gallery.
The sculpture work consists of a large display of lycra drenched in fiery colors. The collection of original photographs, large pieces about installations developed by Angel Orensanz in various cities and natural settings of Russia have been photographed by Yuri Barikin. Finally the drawings by the artist have been created during many years of residence in Russia.
Angel Orensanz has developed eight retrospective shows in Moscow and St. Petersburg. He was made an honorary member of the National Academy of Arts and of the St. Petersburg Academy of Arts too.
Orensanz has developed a strong friendship with Andrei Voznesensky and other poets, and some of the most significant art writers of the country have extensively analyzed his work, such as Alexander Borovski, Nikolai Blagodatov, Vasili Tseretelli, besides other star art critics such as Achille Bonito Oliva, John Spike, Pierre Restany or Sir Roland Penrose.
The catalogue that will be published with this occasion has many significant texts and illustrations of the work of Angel Orensanz.
