ART Improvisaciones, a one man show  by Guatemalan Master artist Ramón Ávila. The exhibit includes recent abstracts and a selected group of highly expressionistic works, drawings, oils and mixed mediums.

art guatemalaÁvila brings an intense drama to his work with the use of light and shadow, form and color resulting in highly evolved compositions. Though abstractions, some of them represent recognizable forms, such as huge sailing vessels, the intricate pattern woven in a Guatemalan textile and complex architectural designs.

All of his work creates a powerful  impression, inspiring  feelings of warmth, awe, joy, anger and melancholy. Also in the exhibition, a collection of figurative works produced in the early 1960s including portraits and compositions that narrate and comment upon the social and political atmosphere of the time in Guatemala.

This series of paintings reflect the cultural and traditional elements of his adopted country viewed from a very personal and humane standpoint. The intention of showing this collection is to  consolidate the work of the master who has contributed enormously to the history of the fine arts in Guatemala.
