Raúl Guerra, “Sanctuary”, Mini Solo Show
January 26th – February 17th, 2019
Opening Reception with the Artist: January 26th, 6-8pm
Northport, NY– Haven Gallery is pleased to present “Sanctuary”, a mini solo exhibition of new paintings by Spain based artist Raúl Guerra. “Sanctuary” is Raúl’s first solo show at the gallery and entails a collection of both oil paintings and works on paper. “Sanctuary” represents a refuge artist, his sitters and their audience; a world laced with childhood dreams and memoirs where one can find shelter and comfort from the complexities and shadows of a mature reality. Culling inspiration from the natural world, art history and mythology, Guerra reminisces and retells the innocence, nativity and truth found in the purity of emotion of a child.
“With Sanctuary I wanted to create pieces to comfort my audience, to give hope. There are no pretensions on the way I created the pieces. There is silence, stillness and a sense of myth and romanticism.” – Raúl Guerra
