“My work is the result of years of searching for my own personal expression. The creative process is a permanent dialog with the artworks, allowing them to appear as freely as possible. It gives me the possibility to rescue old memories, hopes, and fears, as well as unexpected parts of myself. I owe to music and dance the colors and movements I depict in my paintings. The choreography of colors and lines, the spontaneity in gestures and palettes, are all guided by a non-verbal state of mind".
Guillermo Arismendi's Studio
"The collection of works presented here are created to express feelings and memories that go beyond words. The search of a personal language has inspired my work. Lines and colors create an environment where intuitions run free between chaos and order, allowing me to seize moments that carry life on their own.
Music and dance, logic and poetry, had inspired me to face the creation process. Small details coexists in harmony with powerful forces, producing an optimistic insight where risk and drama are also present. There is a dialog that does not end with the finished work; it goes on to the viewers, who are invited to get involved in this endless search. Let images talk to you with the love and passion I put in them".

The modernist legacy continues to inspire some artists working today, who remained devoted to the explorations of the painterly surface while projecting their own aesthetic or conceptual persuasions. The practice of the Russian-born artist Elena Zelenina nicely illustrates this claim, as it is reminiscent of Marc Chagall’s painting, on one hand, and the spiritual preoccupations of Wassily Kandinsky on the other.
Zelenina's contemplative dreamscapes are a manifestation of the way the artist perceives spirituality since to her, everything in life is about spirituality or enlightenment, about what she likes to describe as "enlightened living."

The artist’s vibrant works are organized in cycles by year and color. One glance at the compositions can tell you a lot about their author’s inner world and original vision. They are simultaneously chaotic and orderly, akin to the cacophony of the modern symphony. Each line represents a note, each color hue is a tone, together producing a beautiful melody. It is not surprising that Arismendi’s unique style is inspired by music and mathematics. Both subjects are known for their abstract concepts that, when channeled purposefully, result in the most harmonious display. The artist says, “I owe to music and dance the colors and movements I depict in my paintings. The choreography of shades, tones, and lines, the spontaneity of gestures and palettes, are all guided by a non-verbal state of mind. The beauty of mathematics also inspires my sense of accuracy and discipline. It serves as a counterpoint of the wildest instincts in the act of creation.”

Natalia Koren Kropf refers to her artworks as “visual poems,” created across a splendid variety of media: drawing, painting, printmaking, works on paper and sculpture. Her lyrical language seems to stem from a connection with nature, initially hinted at by the titles of some of her series: the linocuts named Summer Memory, Purple Sunset, Blue Evening; her watercolors depicting Northern Light or Winter Sun; Spring Blossoms and Windy Day, belonging to the ink drawings.
There is also something organic about it all, perhaps most notably in the abstract intaglios: intricate shapes floating in a sensitive color palette, somehow calm in comparison with the more frenetic abstractions found in the Musical Movement series, evoking the vivacity of music through stronger hues. The organic thought also translates into ceramic, bronze, or terra-cotta sculptures, as their three-dimensional interpretations.
WHAT PEOPLE SAY
I had a very positive experience while participating in a few exhibitions with Artios Gallery. When I first met gallery owners, I knew right away that I was dealing with professionals, who knew how to curate a show.
Artios gallery offers a very intimate, deep encounter with a broad spectrum of artists of all ages and genders, representing many different cultures, nations, and backgrounds. For me personally - a professional woman living in NYC, a collector trained in art history, it has been a heartwarming experience to watch the Artios gallery to blossom from the start, with a lot of personal, detailed input from its organizers.
A well-appointed gallery with an interesting selection of contemporary art. I appreciate their desire to bring in new talent. You can view all art online. You will be inspired by what you see at Artios.
