Silvanele reflects on migratory flows in a project inspired by ancestral cultures (11/02/2020)

Migratory flows ”, formed by pictorial and sculptural work, opens on February 14 at 8 pm at the Cultural Center of Ceut |

Silvanele's new artistic work draws a symbolic map of the migratory movements of the human being, an iconographic reinterpretation that chooses elements from different cultures (Aztec, Mayan, Inca or Celtic, among others).

It is a reflection, in the key of the past, present and future, on the search for opportunities of the individual due to several factors, “whether climate changes, political ideals, extreme poverty, injustices, threats of any kind, the simple fact of get better job opportunities and even enjoy the wonderful diversity that our planet offers, ”explains the author.

The exhibition, entitled “Overseas.

Migratory flows ”is formed by a score of works, arising from an investigation into the iconography of ancient civilizations.

In them the artist has built a series of metaphors of the various routes, interior and geographical, constant and unavoidable, of the human being.

Transformations materialized in a “personal interpretation of symbols and icons of different ancestral cultures, origin of current civilizations, which have been and are moving from south to north, from east to west and vice versa.

From Africa, South America, Central America, Asia and Europe, with an eye on the precious overseas, ”he says.

With titles as suggestive as “Are walls rea l ly the solution?

"(Are the walls really the solution?), Silvanele tells us about the constant migratory movement of the peoples of Central America, or builds symbolic universes inspired by relevant historical moments - as is the case of the work entitled" I also have a dream "(I also have a dream), which recalls the famous phrase" I have a dream "pronounced by Martin Luther King in relation to the rights of the African-American people.

In his pictorial works, performed in mixed media, either acrylic and wax on board, or acrylic and watercolor on paper and board, the ultramarine blue color is a fundamental element, which subtly translates the sculptural production of this series (in polychrome wood).

Pieces that dialogue about miscegenation, cultural diversity, equality, tolerance or inclusion, as the main themes in a work that does not leave behind a call of attention to the viewer to observe the reality of the world.
