Valentina Bilbao was the featured artist at the Art Ovation Hotel on October 16 from 6 to 8 at the Sarasota, Florida.
Valentina Bilbao’s most recent series titled “Hallelujah,” inspired by the song written by Leonard Cohen, symbolize the different stages indicated by the lyrics, such as celebration, regret, mourning, and reconciliation. Valentina’s connection to nature is particularly evident in the use of splashes of greens and blues in paintings such as “Sonder” (2019) and “Luminescence” (2019). Visually, they are magnificent explosions of color full of life and positive energy. According to the artist, “this series is my pictorial representation of the Hallelujah song, which to me means the realization of something significant in this tangible world. Although its manifestation has more spiritual than worldly implications, it achieves something so vital that it can be part of real happiness.
