Poetical Minimalism

Cecilia Segura is a youngish artist (1974) with Mallorcan roots, based in Barcelona, with currently a fascinating exhibition at Palma’s Casal Solleric (November 25th, 2011, to January 15th, 2012). The exhibition is a daring show of kinetic shapes and minimal colours in the tradition of Yaacov Agam or Jesús Rafael Soto. The presentation is not quite as captivating as a previous show presented by Soledad Sevilla at the Centre de Cultura SA NOSTRA in Palma (1993-94). The Soledad Sevilla installation as well as the Cecilia Segura show both are and were lyrical, poetical and sensitive; the present exhibition is probably the best one in Palma at this moment. The exhibition is open free of charge, Tuesday to Saturday (10h00-14h00 and 17h00-21h00) and Sunday (10h00-13h30).

If you can possibly make it to Madrid one of these days, Soledad Sevilla has a splendid installation there at the moment, at the Palacio de Cristal (Parque del Retiro) until April 15th, 2012.

On a note of tristesse I have you know that the Palma gallery, Joan Guaita Art, has sadly closed its doors for good after 25 years. Joan Guaita was the Spanish representative of Jesús Soto, amongst others. I understand that Senyor Guaita will continue to work as an art consultant on a freelance basis, from his private home.

Muchas gracias.
