Le Balcon d’art is proud to invite you to a 6 à 8 cocktail with renowned Peruvian artist Fidel Ponce Ccana.
Fidel Ponce Ccana was born in 1973 in Lima, Peru, where he studied at the National School of Fine Arts from 1992 to 1998. His academic background was influenced by well-known artists such as Rembrandt, Caravaggio and Da Vinci . Peruvian primitive painters Carlos Palma, Daniel Manta and Pedro Caballero were his mentors and influenced his pictorial work and his vision of the world. Invited to exhibit his works, he immigrated to Canada in 2003, in the city of Montreal. He has had more than four solo exhibitions in Montreal and has participated in various symposia, festivals and international exhibitions. Fidel’s paintings can be found in many important private collections in Canada and Peru
For the occasion, the artist will present a selection of recent works.
It was brought to our attention that some Facebook subscribers appeared to be reluctant about the content of some of the works by our artist of the week, Fidel Ponce Ccana.
There is a very big difference between the artistic nude and pornography. Throughout history, artists have shown the human body in its splendor so that beauty and perfection are well illustrated.
In art, the nude is a means of expressing creativity and not just a tool of exploitation.
Most of the great artists, from Michelangelo to Renoir to Picasso, Modigliani and, closer to us, Suzor-Côté showed the human body in its simplest form and are seen as giants of art.
In this case, the artist uses the nude in contrast to the angular shapes that populate the rest of his paintings. The nude also “humanizes” the very atmosphere of paintings opposing the sterility of abstract forms to the naturalness of the human body.
We hope that this clarification will allow you to better understand the reasons that motivate the very nature of the presence of the works in question both on our website and on Facebook.
