Press Release

For Immediate Release From: Da Silva Gallery 899 Whalley Avenue New Haven, CT 06515 When: January 6-February 4 Contact: Gabriel DaSilva 203-387-2539 E-mail: DaSilva Gallery @gmail.com DaSilva Gallery Premieres Exciting New 12/12/12 Exhibits From far-away lands, which vibrate to a different beat culturally, politically and artistically, Gabriel DaSilva has chosen to display the artwork of 12 different artists from 12 Latin American countries for 12 different shows in 2012. The inaugural show is titled 12/12/12-Ferrer (Cuba). The debut artist for the series will be Reynier Ferrer, a young Cuban-born artist whose colorful, jarring abstracts have made him internationally known. Artist Edmundo Desnoes, who is a relative of Ferrer, said last year in New York that “Cuba, like everything else has two faces: one full of colors and naïve figures and another one palpitating in a dark night. To my eyes ruled by memories, Rey is a painter of roots in the hot mud.” Writer Pitier Ortega Nunez is taken by his “passionate temperament and the doughy darkness of his paintings. His naked imagination reveals the distant line of the horizon or the sinuous course of deep rivers murmuring in the caves towards the silent and eloquent lips of a woman. His paintings go beyond the pleasure of the eyes and the sensorial experience. They want to communicate, trigger thoughts and intellectually challenge the receptor. They mean to tell stories, create worlds.” Like his artistic compatriots, Ferrer is possessed of a great love of his island home along with a deep hatred for what has become of it. This dichotomy of feeling is evident in his work which is beautiful and harsh at the same time. Gabriel Da Silva, Director of the DaSilva Gallery is himself from Montevideo, Uruguay. After living in the United States for over 20 years and being fully immersed in American art and culture he felt it was time to rediscover his own heritage and the 12/12/12 concept was born. This exhibit will be a learning experience for both the visitors to the gallery and for myself. It is time artistically for me to find my way back home”.
