GINA PELLÓN: Selection of works from 100 Years of Creations by 20 Women Artists (1922 to 2022)
 
  • Exhibition Photos

  • Cuban Art
    This Gina Pellón exhibition highlights the artists stylistic use of thick,
    vibrant colors in contrast with her loose, erratic brushstrokes.




    “I paint every day… from sunrise to sundown.
    In this process, I have the need to create,
    to portray emotions,
    and once I am about to complete a work,
    I get the urge to attack another.”


    -Gina Pellón

    Cuban Art
    This section presents Gina's superb color consistency and her use
    of similar tonalities in two separate compositions.




    Femininity blushes in her canvases, through the feast of color. The sinuous lines render the coquettish curvatures of her ladies. Women who exalt dignity and self-assurance in a world conquered via beauty and elegance, not by conflict and militancy.

    -Ramón Cernuda

    "In the best Cuban plastic tradition, Pellón makes use of a brilliant palette. As a true colorist, she creates form from pigment, with frenzied energy. Her compositions might be described as the work of a highly chromatic expressionist. Charged with tropical sensuality, they impart a linear vision of ambient reality. Lines are traced in color, for the most part pure, whose shimmering luminosity attracts the viewer at once. There is no striving for effect... What really counts, what constitutes the attraction of Pellón's painting, is the rare combination it evinces of imagination and technical skill."

    -José Gómez Sicre

    "A master of color, Gina Pellón’s style and palette are marked by luminous color and gestural rhythm. Her chosen central theme was the female figure. Prismatic figures of women, faces, groups and gatherings of people stream in her vibrant compositions conveying spontaneity at its best.”

    -Nercys Cernuda
