I was born in a Little country called Spain. It’s a beautiful place, with sun and some pretty girls (like everywhere). We loved to drink a little, to speak anywhere, to smoke a little… to live. In art, we had very important names in History like Picasso, Velazquez, Dali… Also, we had a man called Cervantes, one of the best novelists in the History (it’s not me the only one who asserts this). We know we are not very good scientists or playing chess against the Russians… we are not as efficient as German people and, making movies, we cannot compare with America (of course, who could?)… But we were good in something, maybe something not very important in these modern times but our artists were famous in the whole world (excuse me for the confusion but I consider ‘artists’ to the writers too)… Yes, I repeat, we were good in something because, more or less, every country has its good things. Centuries ago, we had also an empire (nobody remembers this now, but I promise we had it)… but we were not conquerors.

At this point, I would like to ask something. What do you think if Russians, for some reason, begin to stop playing chess? Then, maybe you would answer with the famous sentence ‘something is rotten in the state of Denmark’ and, probably, you would be true. And now, I can say you: ‘something is rotten in the state of Spain.’ And I have my reasons to say that (and I am not going to speak about economics or crisis or doves flying): we’ve lost our identity as characters. I must explain this: our literature has characters like don Quixote, who defines the personality and manners of old Spanish people. In some point, maybe when we had to be part of the new Europe, we’ve lost the feeling of our past times and we had to convert it in something different, in something weird. What happened? Influences from Europe came strong, yes, but we thought the old Mediterranean countries had a consolidated History to keep their manners. Of course we were never bankers, of course we’ve never had the best economy but we had and artist in every citizen, a good speaker in every corner, a good wine in every country.

“All of my life, I have been in love with arts. My grandfather was an artist and I grew up in that world of colors and fantasies. I studied History, what includes Art History, and I have been teaching in a Secondary School from years. I published a novel ‘Ariza’ in 2008 and an essay about old female painters, ‘The Girls of Oil’, in 2010. Now, I’m interested in myths and legends of Mother Nature, the White Goddess of the Mediterranean Sea, the place of dreams where I was born. I’ve a pet, Jack the Labrador, who usually accompany me when I’m writing for Yareah magazine, edited with my husband, the author Martin Cid.”

Enjoy the video Fauvism, a new allegory of colors, an article by Isabel del Rio:

At the start of the 20th century, a group of artists started a new approach to color in art. They were influenced by post-impressionist artists, especially by Paul Gauguin. Gauguin believed that color had almost mystical meaning and it could express our feelings and emotions rather than reflect a scene in a realistic way as artists were doing from the Renaissance. For example, in ‘Vision after the Sermon’, Gauguin painted Jacob wrestling with an angel, the background is red, a subjective red to create a blood field of combat and then, to emphasize the mood and subject of the sermon.

This break with the former use of color inspired younger artists to experiment with new possibilities for color in art: Henry Matisse and Andre Derain were the central figures. In 1905, they travelled together at Collioure and they started to look for a way where their strong colors suited well. Because at first glance, the apparent freedom of their style seems to deny any technique (both had studied in The Academy of Fine Arts in Paris with the symbolist artist Gustave Moreau). In Collioure, they discovered that using such exaggerated colors, they had to simplify the drawing and they understood that if they intensified the quality of color for expressive effect, they had to reduce the amount of detail used in drawing the shapes and forms of the painting.
