Ventana244 Art Space is pleased to present NOTES, an exhibition of new and old work by Anne Chu, Magaly Perez and Ana Busto. These three artists use industrial materials, found objects, photography and paint to create views, different perspectives and insights about nature. Coming from diverse geographies, each artist looks at art and nature in distinct ways. Here at Ventana244, they come together to maintain a dialogue and generate a conversation. During the 1980’s, these three artists began an ongoing exchange about nature through art. NOTES reflects this continuing, common theme in these artists work.

*Anne Chu makes landscapes using many mediums and transpositions. Anne participates in NOTES with two works that use figures of birds. One is a rough heavy black crow cast in bronze; the other is light weight, colorful embroidered on fabric; Their mysterious presence calls for attention. The Birds can be part of any real or abstract landscape.

Magaly Perez presents a painting and gouaches that are influenced by tantric art and garden design in their structure. Her use of color carries a feeling and memory of Cuba, where she was born.

Ana Busto is presenting objects that are like a violent twist, or pinch, to the natural world- tortured chicks, extracted tree knots or burned ponderosa. The photos are opposites living on the same image; the formality of the dance practices with images of the over run park in her neighborhood. Click for video
