Valentina Bilbao exhibition at Cleveland Clinic Weston
Valentina Bilbao exhibited at Cleveland Clinic Weston four artworks of 48 x 48 inches from her 2019 Bright Series, respectively entitled: Bright Series Blue, Bright Series Green, Bright Series Orange and Bright Series Red. She created this Series as a set of five artworks each developed in a different color, using her characteristic pictorial techniques with strong strokes of palette knife placing thick layers of paint of the chosen color, then continuing with dripping in darker or lighter tones of the main color, creating a dynamic effect on a powerful painting. The Bright Series, made during July-August 2019, includes five paintings in red, blue, yellow, green and orange defining the uniqueness of each painting by the use of only one color. The Series was inspired by the Hallelujah Chorus included in Part II of the Messiah oratorio, composed in 1741 by German musician George Frederic Handel, b. 1685 – d. 1759, while he was residing in London. Valentina Bilbao says: “I decode the Music to then transform and code it as color. For me, the Music is not only an inspiration, it is the element from which all is born, it is the Artwork on itself, expressed in a different way. My Artwork is completed when I am able to bring the Music to a visual tangible dimension.” Her paintings visually transmits the emotion of depicting the feeling of celebrations relevant for humanity that happens for diverse occasions. Celebrations can be Roads to Heaven, Happy Anniversaries, Tributes for Achievements, Graduations, Awards or Successful Events in any life path or career. Valentina’s artistic creativity and pictorial ideas flow natural on her paintings with the sound that escalates from soft to uplifting, festive and blissful. As she follows in contact with the music, the feelings and emotions that guide her Art take place, as paint and color are transformed into joyful and positive, visual and spiritual tangible messages. Valentina Bilbao touches the heart and the soul of her works viewers to evoke the forever-changing life of Light and the Universe.
