Ana Rossi "The Organic"

 

 

 

 

 

Devoted to arts since a very young age, and already taking classes at age 16 with artist Jose Amore, in Buenos Aires, where Ana was born and grew up, she knew that her call was to be an artist. She studied in The National School of Arts Prilidiano Pueyrredon and is also a drawing, painting and art history professor and participating in numerous exhibitions around the country, including The Municipal Concourse of Alba Company Award, Mural in the Roberto Arlt Park, in 1989. Today, a member of Amnesty International, she has created several themes and has been exhibiting at The Hangar Gallery at Art Basel since 2011 to present, and painted an array of murals for Miami, which she calls "home city." She is very happy to have found a new home and left behind her adolescent years of military government without rights!

"It is a wonderful feeling when you can find people and places together, where the power of "Art" and self-expression meet. Regardless of where, who is all that matters! For me to bring you at least a little of this wonderful feeling between amazing people and be able to share it with you all, it makes me feel that I am a part of them.

 

The McCormick place, originally built in 1924, was first a US Customs Warehouse and a witness of so many nefarious and merchants of soul coming into Miami through the Miami River and Biscayne Bay. And lucky for us, Mr. Edward J. McCormick, Sr. purchased the property in 1970 and dedicated it to

his father, Dr. James McCormick. Now thanks to Sean McCormick third generation, he converted the place in 2012 into a central hub for artists.

 

Sean McCormick has saved and kept the historical building with its original shape but highlighted as an art structure, which everyone can see between the highway webs, ramps, and Metrorail in Downtown, Miami. His vision as a curator is to house works from visual and performing arts to music and fashion. Along with his project he is also saving all the surrounding areas of the building.

 

I myself experienced the fortune of sharing the McCormick Place with so many artists when I was invited to show my new spring 2014 Wonderland collection at its annual DWNTWN Art Event. And now I want to invite you all to read and share part of our Miami treasures, as your Miami Icon Designer I want to give back the same as my city has given to me.

 

McCormick Place not only houses so many artists, but also hosts a gallery event every Friday showcasing different visuals and music, and brings together a very nice intellectual group of people and media where they are able to connect and interact with one another.

 

If I were able to go to every Friday event, I definitely would be the first. Please allow me to introduce to you some of these amazing artists!

Challenges 

Martin Luther King Jr once said:

“We will have to repent in this generation not merely for the vitriolic words and actions of the bad people, but for the appalling silence of the good people.”

 

This represents me as a person and as an artist. It is how I feel when painting. 

Challenge is why I call it Pictoral Cannibalism.

It is a social critique of the vicissitudes, the challenges facing our gender, at different times in history.

What is expected of us, what is our role in society, in the West and East. The rupture of schemes and molds.

Just as Hermann Hesse once said to Lobo Estepario, a cry of anguish and warning to all beings knowing the source of their most intimate motivations are immersed in their own atrocities.

Challege is also a questioning of what we can become. Stop catering to others and be the protagonist of the story that you want to write and live.

Made of mixed materials, oil, photography, paper, organic materials, recyclable materials, wooden boxes as containers for the unexpected, each of these elements takes the viewer to desire to discover where this story takes them and how far does the story go as it is told with just a paint brush. 

Marcel Duchamp said that good taste is just a habit, repetition of an accepted thing .... if it does it again several times it becomes taste..... Good or bad, always taste.

Why aluminum? Why the boxes?

Because we are living in the world during a time where people don't use their imaginations to fly, people fly in heavy aircrafts, life is reflected in this metal.

The box, like that of Pandora's, asks you to discover and sacrafice any risks, in order to recieve a kiss or a kick. 

You could say it is a visual book, where the woman develops and decides who and what she wants to be during a new millennium.

 

Hermann Hesse, said: "There is no more reality than that which we have inside, so most humans live so unrealistically, because they believe that external images are the reality, and they don't allow their inner world to manifest." 

If this reality actually came to materialize in the life of society, we would build a world based on the highest ideals, and the simplest actions would be the true work of art.

Literature is one of the biggest influences, the other is music.

From the tango (born in Buenos Aires Argentina) to classical music, jazz, rock, blues, and others, my artistic state and subjects were influenced as I took a paint brush. 

Artists from the likes of Bosch, Gustav Klimt, Oskar Kokoschka, Frida Kahlo, Diego Rivera, were and are my admiration. Japanese prints, like hindu art, are the strongest influence when choosing palette color, from one extreme to another.

 

Deepak Chopra, Lovecraft, Poe, Carlos Castaneda, Jorge Luis Borges, Marcel Proust, Dostoevsky, Julio Cortazar, Balzac, Voltaire, Kafka .. are what made me conscious and forced me to swim in the human spirit, to reach the deepest waters that inhabit our nature.

Artist-activist, pictoral-cannibalism, take the issues of society to create a lens that gets to open the viewer's eyes to the true reality.

"Since the generals do not die on horseback, painters have no obligation to die on the easel." (M. Duchamp)

This is me and this is Challenge ......



Challenges

dijo Martin Luther King:

"Nuestra generacion no se habra lamentado tanto de los crimenes de los perversos , como del estremecedor silencio de los bondadosos."

 

Esto me representa como persona y artista, así me siento al pintar.

Challenge es por eso lo que llamo Canivalismo Pictorico

Es una critica social a las visicitudes, los desafíos que nuestro genero enfrenta , en los diferentes momentos de la historia.

Que se espera de nosotras, cual es nuestro roll en la sociedad, en occidente y oriente. La ruptura de esquemas y moldes.

Asi como alguna vez Hermann Hesse dijo a cerca del Lobo Estepario, un grito de angustia y advertencia a todos los seres que desconociendo el origen de sus mas intimas motivaciones, se ven inmersos en sus propias atrocidades.

Challege es asi mismo el cuestionamiento de lo que podemos llegar a ser. Dejar de estar en las manos de otros para ser las protagonistas de la historia que deseamos escribir y vivir.

Realizada en materiales mixtos, oleo, fotografia, papel, productos orgánicos, mariales reciclables, cajas de madera como contenedores de lo inesperado, cada uno de estos elementos lleva al espectador al deseo de descubrir en donde y hasta donde llega esta historia contada con pincel.

Marcel Duchamp decia que el buen gusto es solo un habito, la repetición de una cosa aceptada….si se vuelve a las andadas varias veces se convierte en gusto…..Bueno o malo, siempre es gusto.

Porque el aluminio? Porque las cajas?

Por que estamos en un tiempo donde para volar la gente no usa la inamginación, vuelan en aviones pesados, la vida queda reflejada en este metal.

La caja, así como la de Pandora, te pide que descubras, que sacrifiques el riesgo de recibir un beso o una patada.

Se podría decir que es un libro visual, donde la mujer desarrolla y decide en que se quiere convertir durante nuevo milenio.

 

 

Hermann Hesse, decía:"No hay mas realidad que la que tenemos dentro, por eso la mayoría de los seres humanos viven tan irrealmente, por que creen que las imágenes exteriores son la realidad, y no permiten a su mundo interior  manifestarse."

 

Si esta realidad llegara a concretarse en la vida de toda la sociedad, construiríamos un mundo basado en los mas altos ideales y los actos mas simples serían la verdadera obra de arte.

La literatura es una de las mas grandes influencias , la otra es la música.

Desde el tango ( nacida en Buenos Aires Argentina) la música clásica, jazz, rock, blues, la música influenció en mi estado y temática a la hora de tomar el pincel.

Artistas de la talla de El Bosco, Gustav Klimt, , Oskar Kokoschka, Frida Kahlo, Diego Rivera, fueron y son de mi admiracion , la estampa japonesa, como el arte indu, son de la mas fuerte influencia a la hora de elegir paleta de color, de un extremo al otro.

 

Deepak Chopra, Lovecraft, Poe, Carlos Castaneda, Jorge Luis Borges, Marcel Proust, Dostoyevski,, Julio Cortazar, Balzac, Voltaire, Kafka..son los que me hicieron caer en cuenta y nadar en el espíritu humano, hasta llegar a las mas profundas aguas en las que habita nuestra naturaleza.

Artista-activista, canivalista-pictorica, tomo los temas de la sociedad para generar un lente que llegue a abrir los ojos del espectador a la verdadera realidad.

" Desde que los generales no mueren a caballo, los pintores no tenemos la obligación de morir en el caballete."(M. Duchamps)

Esta soy yo y esto es Challenge……

Challenge exibition in Irazoqui Art Gallery

Posted by Ana Rossi on April 4, 2013 at 10:30 PM Comments comments (0)


Motivated by the feminist movement and taking center stage in the story of her life, Ana Rossi has learned what the 60’s leave behind for contemporary women artists. Organic elements, photography, pop influence, and psychedelia converge in a piece of work whose concept is centered within woman rights, their fights, and reactions. Vibrant colors in moving figures, surrealist environments, cosmic images, the mystic oriental influence, poesy, and literature, make “Challenge” pass from sensual to critical and protesting moments. These elements are manifested as the latest mixed media resources.

Born in Argentina within a context where her childhood and adolescence elapse during a military dictatorship, Ana was left to fulfill the necessity to express herself. She began her studies in the workshop of the painter Jose Amore at the age of sixteen. In 1985, she entered the National School for Fine Arts Prilidiano Pueyrredon, where she was taught by Carreño, Miguel Angel Vidal, Julio Flores Benedinni, just to mention a few.

Motivated by her gender, Ana portrays her vision in series. Decade after decade, Ana paints of stories of women through different points of view. What the artist is really interested in is the interaction with the public and their genuine feedback; this is the reason she tells stories through painting. In “Challenge”, Ana Rossi synthesizes with colorful feminine figures on metal backgrounds, the strength of her gender when facing a challenge.
