My Amerikan Beauty - Alejandro Romaní

My Amerikan Beauty - Alejandro Romaní

By Arion in Reviews on January 9, 2013

  My drawing / mi dibujo This month I have so many comics and trade paperbacks to review that I don’t know where to begin. Thanks to the generosity of some of my friends in the message boards I have received a couple of gifts, the most notorious would be The Manhattan Projects (courtesy of GiveWarAChance). But I also have Ultimate Spider-Man vols. 1 and 2, plus all the new comics from December (and a few from November that I haven’t reviewed yet): FF # 1, With Doctor Mal Practice # 1 & 2, Happy # 3, Uncanny Avengers # 2, Fashion Beast # 4, Caligula Heart of Rome # 1, America’s Got Powers # 4 and Legend of Luther Strode # 1. So my question is, my dear friends, which ones are you reading? What interests you the most? Marvel Now? The new Image series and miniseries? Lapham’s return to Caligula? The first arc of Jonathan Hickman’s magnum opus? Or would you prefer to read a review about Ultimate Spider-Man, a series that started over a decade ago?  ________________________________________________________________________ ________________________________________________________________________ Alejandro Romaní Como suele suceder, el año empieza lleno de actividades y, claro está, el mundo de las galerías limeñas no es ajeno a esta surte de ebullición cultural. Ayer miércoles se inauguraron muestras al menos en cuatro galerías distintas. Por cuestiones de tiempo, me resultó imposible ir a todas, pero al menos llegué a tres. Tres de cuatro me parece bastante bien. Así que empecemos con la muestra del Centro Cultural El Olivar en San Isidro “My Amerikan Beauty” del artista Alejandro Romaní. Conozco a Alejandro al menos desde hace un par de años, y aunque había visto cuadros suyos antes no había podido contemplar del todo la profundidad de su propuesta. Además de una notable unidad temática, todos sus cuadros nos hacen reflexionar sobre asuntos que ya preocupaban a los filósofos griegos, como la prevalencia de la forma sobre el contenido. Sin duda, es una de las mejores muestras que ha tenido lugar en El Olivar, y es, como dice el propio autor una “Resistencia vectorial contra el monopolio de la estética instalada”.  Hugo Salazar Saludé a Alejandro, que estaba sumamente alegre, y no podía ser de otra forma ya que esta era su noche. También hablé un ratito con Marcos Palacios y Paola Tejada, y luego de un par de traguitos de pisco Rotondo (curiosamente el mismo pisco que usé este fin de semana en la playa para hacer varias rondas de maracuyá sour), partí en dirección a mi distrito. Ya en Barranco me dirigí primero a la Galería Lucía de la Puente, en donde se inauguraban las muestras “Nosotros/Ellos” de José Luis Martinat. Cuando Fernando de Szyszlo afirmó que “El futuro del arte peruano me preocupa de la misma manera o incluso menos que el futuro del arte en general, que está en un punto más bajo del que ha estado nunca”. Muchos artistas contemporáneos manifestaron su desacuerdo con estas palabras. Martinat, de hecho, afirmó lo siguiente: "[Szyszlo] Es un artista tan tradicional, tan mayor, con un pensamiento tan cerrado, que no le doy ni dos segundos de mi tiempo, no le doy importancia". Sin embargo, Szyszlo es Szyszlo, y Martinat es solamente Martinat, y aunque le pese, para hacer instalaciones hay que tener una propuesta muy sólida, algo que no encuentro en esta muestra que, finalmente, ejemplifica muy bien lo que dice el mayor artista peruano. La segunda muestra "Sé que te mueres por mí" de Aldo Chaparro es incluso de mayor pobreza que la de Martinat. De todos modos, al menos me entretuve tomando un par de copitas de Malbec Navarro Correas. Además, en la galería me encontré con el artista Dare Dovidjenko, Daniel Barclay, Carmen Alegre e Irene Tomatis. Zoë Massey En la Galería Cecilia González se inauguraba la muestra "Llave inglesa" de Zoë P. Massey, una interesante combinación de fotografías digitales, ilustraciones en pequeño formato y juguetes con fotografías miniaturizadas que sólo podían verse acercando el objeto en cuestión a los ojos. Con creatividad y lucidez, la artista nos presenta una obra que deleita la vista. Allí me encontré con mi antiguo amigo y colega de trabajo (años ha, cuando trabajábamos en el centro de Lima) Daniel Paz. También hablé con Pablo Villaizán, que ya regresó de Barcelona y estará acá durante algunos meses. Luego de un par de copas heladitas de Moët & Chandon decidí que ya era momento de retirarme. Hacía mucho tiempo que no asistía a tres inauguraciones seguidas, pero había olvidado lo divertido que podía ser practicar este tipo de maratones culturales   Originally Published at http://artbyarion.blogspot.com/2013/01/my-amerikan-beauty-alejandro-romani.html
