Art by ARMANDO BAEZA, OSCAR CASTILLO, ART LEON, RAMON RAMIREZ. The number 1.618 refers to the Divine Proportion which is a fundamental building block found in nature. The ratio 1.618:1 was used by ancient civilizations such as the Greeks and Egyptians to bring order to their art and architecture.
This exhibition brings together 4 artists from the same geographical location (two reside in the city of Whittier and two in Montebello) with diverse aesthetics and means of artistic production. A sculptor, two photographers and a painter display their work in one gallery; not to reject the divine proportion', but to further examine and understand the relationships, both artistic and cultural, that exist between them and their work.

Our Stories by Mauricio Toussaint
through painting, my vision of the reality of the world is my motivation.
As a painter I have found that the experimentation and expansion of my work
was limited during my life in Mexico, the stigma, self-censorship and a society
made it difficult for me to evolve.

Artist Reception: Saturday, February 21, 7:00 to 11:00 p.m.
The Avenue 50 Studio will host an art exhibit of serigraphs, lithographs and paintings by Havana artist Rubén Rodríguez Martínez. Rodríguez's powerful sense of line translates into dynamically fluid figures floating in space – body parts in the midst of lovemaking. These deceptively simple but energetic images create a balance between the physical and the intellectual as we struggle to comprehend the relationship of disjointed parts. Mr. Rodríguez is dealing with the physical moment.
Born in Cardenas, Matanzas Province, Cuba in 1959, Rodríguez graduated in 1975 from the Provincial School of Plastic Arts of Las Villas. He carried out studies in the National School of Plastic Arts of Havana graduating with a specialty in drawing, printmaking and painting. Many of his works are in private museums, galleries and collections in Brazil, Teheran, Venezuela, Kuwait, Portugal, Spain, United States, Uruguay, Germany, Panama, and Cuba. At the present time, Rodríguez is a professor of engraving at the Superior Institute of Art of Havana. He is a member of the National Union of Cuban Writers and Artists (UNEAC).

Icaro Gallery is proud to announce their third annual group show of Latin American painters entitled Light, Color and Passion. The opening reception is Saturday February 28, 2004 from 6-10 PM. The exhibition runs from February 28 through April 24, 2004.
This popular and acclaimed exhibition showcases fourteen painters from seven
countries. The artists represent the vast territories of South America including the oil rich north, the white snow capped Andes, the green carpeted rain forest, the myriad colors of the cities, and the vast blue skies of the Pampas. Cuba's vibrant Caribbean culture and tradition steeped Mexico are also featured. The third installment of Light, Color and Passion highlights some favorite artists from prior shows and some newcomers who are sure to attract a following. Peruvian Maria Mandun excites the viewer with her colorful allegorical characters inhabiting fanciful esoteric worlds. Peruvians Gabriel Mendivil and Alfredo Ruiz use political satire to express the contradictions of their culture juxtaposing native traditions with modern realities of life. Peruvian Lenin Medina creates haunting figurative work.
Venezuelan Manolo Roldan expresses the hope and dreams of his people with colors that resemble the land and natural elements of South America. Norma Michel continues the Mexican tradition of using symbolism to express a wide range of emotions and experiences. Spaniard Moises Hergueta, Cuban painter Reinaldo Vargas, Peruvian Ines Villanueva and M. Clara Rossi of Uruguay all use vibrant colors in unique styles to express autobiographical, mythological or spiritual themes. Icaro Gallery in collaboration with Peru Reiser Tours is offering its first guided tour to Peru from May 7-16, 2004. The intimate English language tour features the wonders and beauty of Peru. Participants will experience the gentleness of the Peruvian people, the majesty and spirituality of Machu Picchu, the cosmopolitan nature of Lima juxtaposed to the history and ancient culture of the Incas of Cuzco. Participants will have the opportunity to meet artists from Peru, consult a Peruvian psychic as well as sample the nightlife.
