GABRIELLE D'ANNUNZIO for Il Comune di Saló, Italy. July 2016.

Performance together with artist Guillermo S. Quintana in Saló, Italy.

Celebrating the opening of the new municipal library, the town hall of Saló invites Amanda Arrou-tea and Guillermo S. Quintana to create a piece of art that will be showing at the new library.

Gabrielle D'Annunzio, poet, eccentric and political adventurer, lived his last years in a villa at Saló that nowadays is a touristic place to visit.

Some COMISSIONS

Serie in collaboration with Guillermo S. Quintana

Two different creators on a same canvas. Two different languages that do not struggle with each other. An experiment in which the artists' ego is aimed to disappear.


Blue.

Blue is not only a time, or serie in this case, but a feeling as well. "To feel blue" denotes nostalgia, a light sadness full of good feelings.

RED

These portraits were created between2012 and 2011 in Bordeaux, France. Each portrait involves a strong introspection where the artist is reflected through the characters portrayed. 

MÉXICO

Serie created in 2012, in collaboration with a group vindicating the rights of farmers.

Several times original voices are shut by the conqueror ones. This is the case of the family portrayed. A family that lives on the slopes of the Popocatepetl volcano in México that subsists thanks to the pot coffee and blue corn quesadillas that they offer their visitors. Previously they were engaged in agriculture with greater benefits.

These portraits represent the less favored faces of a country, those that work  24 hours everyday for survival, but paradoxically more authentic and happy.

FIRST STEPS

First paintings from 2001 and 2003.
