VALENTINA BILBAO

Pulse of Abstraction
March 31 – April 21, 2015
Reception: Thursday, April 2, 2015 6-8 PM

The vibrant abstract expressionist paintings of Venezuelan-American artist Valentina Bilbao are inspired as much by music as they are by the deep wellspring of human emotion. Within each painting, color becomes the central element through which Bilbao is able to express and expand upon her feelings, enabling her to bring those emotions from the abstract to the real world. Her use of a spatula imbues a great deal of texture into the paint while fostering a sense of movement that is reflective of the inherent fluidity of the emotive realm.

Bilbao explains the musical inspiration for her work in simple but moving terms: “Music becomes my air, it is my driving force… I can feel the music inside me, my heart dances with each beat, the vibrations of each instrument dance in my soul, transforming each note into my painting... My work is a union of painting and music together into a harmonious symphony that makes my soul smile.” Above all, Bilbao seeks to create paintings that transmit powerful positive emotions, thereby transforming the world into a better place.
