TRANSITIONS IN FERNANDO UREÑA RIB

We observe the transition of Fernando Ureña Rib from a testimonial figurative Art to a surrealistic neo-abstraction Art.  The first method is both prudent and ambitious (never a brusque rupture.) It is a measured experimental boldness absorbed in the next phase. Thus, around 1986, the artist began to reinvent the World of elements, forms and colors fully revealed towards the end of the following year. His exhibition entitled Intimae produced a singular impact. Throughout this period of gestation Fernando Ureña Rib appeared to remain faithful to the vibrant, figurative, oniric quality of his human subject and to the expression of growth, expansion and fertility in his vegetal themes.

Here we sense the throb of the "Tropic" (Title of another one of his shows) and it climatic effects on both man and nature.

The poetic texts that introduce his catalogues- poetry is the "Violin de Ingres" of the artist-, among the emotive phrases of anecdotes we find the hidden key to diverse combinations, organized and harmonious, always more committed to imaginary transmutations. In Trópico (April 1996) Ureña Rib says: "One begins to see the mirage, those reverberations of heat which now melt the images and convert them into a volatile, evanescent chromatic shap

And later (Celajes, November 1996) "The river multiplied and divided the last colors of the afternoon and was converted into an enormous kaleidoscope of liquid and phosphorescent metals." While George Arzeno Brugal justly observed, more directly: " Simultaneously, many of his paintings take up once more the ancient theme of reflecting movement and the displacements of bodies in space."

 

MARIANNE DE TOLENTINO

 

 

Ureña Rib has seen his work exhibited around the World and holds a prominent position on the Art scene in his own country, but he admits to be particularly drawn to Montreal, which he visits annually. Renting a studio in the downtown Belgo Building, he immerses himself enthusiastically in the creative and diverse atmosphere of Montreal producing here his works.
