“The Stigma of Beauty in the Curve of Your Body”

Beauty has been the object of study, adoration and contemplation throughout human history. Beauty could definirse as a simple light reflejada, with its shadows, with its nuances and affronts that as a stigma points to those who possess it and buries in life those who do not have it. Beauty turns the being into an object and leads it along the path of the agonic and hypnotic anguish produced by the contemplation of something that fascinates us. Beauty always transmits the sensation of wanting to be possessed; it is the diamond that the raven seeks. Beauty fascinates and drives you crazy, so even though it may seem a virtue, it is often a condemnation. Hence the stigma, the bad reputation, the mark made with hot iron on the curve of your body. The beauty seen and interpreted by this selection of painters that brings together this exhibition is structured in three different visions of beauty that wrap the fervent beats of their authors in each given stroke. Beauty categorizes our senses into abstract ranges of thought to lead to new feelings before the work presented. Beauty is what saves us from the tedium of everyday life.
