Art And Artists

joan_costa

Some people claim that there are about 7,000 artists making their living from art in Mallorca. One has to assume then that Mallorca is an island where art and artists prosper.

A few days ago, I happened upon two art exhibitions that I consider worthwhile telling you about. The first one has closed now, unfortunately, with work by a Czech artist who to my knowledge has never been to Mallorca. Miroslav Tichý (born 1926 in Nětčice, Czech Republic) had his photographs and early paintings exhibited at the Galería Kewenig under the heading ‘Prayers, Dreams and Goddesses’. There is no doubt in my mind that this German-owned gallery has the most ambitious programming schedule of any contemporary art gallery in Palma de Mallorca, at the moment. The next show there with work on paper by Ian Hamilton Finlay (born 1925, Bahamas – died 2006, Scotland) will open in a week’s time or so and promises to be another highlight in Palma’s art circuit.

The other show worth reporting on is an exhibition that has only just opened at the Casal Solleric with work by Mallorcan artist, Joan Costa (born 1961, Palma de Mallorca). The show is called ‘Ondulacions de la Mediterrània’ and can be seen there until June 7th. The best piece in Joan Costa’s show is, in my mind, an installation piece shown in my photo called ‘Blau’ (2006).

The photo was taken in Palma de Mallorca, Baleares, Spain. The date: April 29th, 2009. The time was 13:24:42.
