"The Renacer Collection"
on exhibit at the
Every now and again, we get the great fortune as artists to get our own solo exhibit. This is mine: "The Renacer Collection"
Many ask me why that particular title? There is reason behind my madness, I say. Renacer is from spanish, it's translation is: to be reborn, rebirth. That is pretty much how I felt when I created this collection. At this point in time, I am changing my life completely. I have gone from a stable management job, to the life of an artist. Good most of the time however, at times very financially rough but, I wouldn't have it any other way. At fifty, I feel that I am finally coming into my own, a rebirth of sorts.
No one said life as an artist would ever be easy, but it sure is fullfiling. To create something out of a blank canvas and watching it slowly come to life is a feeling that only another artist would understand; it is almost magical. To see the works that I have stressed over to create and seeing them now hanging on the walls of clients and galleries; wow! I get butterflies when I realize and say to myself, those are mine and they like them. They really like my art work; the short thin, quiet man from Colombia. I wish I could express what I feel when someone buys or shows interest in one of my paintings...
Join me José Londono on openning day, as I talk about
the collection, my inspiration and my art work as a whole.
