"Emerging" by Romina Diaz Brarda

Casa de la Cultura / Center for Latino Arts se enorgullece en presentar en carne viva, una exhibición de pinturas en acrílico y témpera de la artista Romina Diaz Brarda.

Romina Diaz Brarda nació en Buenos Aires en los años 70, en una época muy oscura de la historia política del país. Perennemente inspirada por la pintura y la escultura, Díaz Brarda construye sus obras esperando que interactúen con el espectador a un nivel fundamental, despellejado: en carne viva.

El grupo de pinturas en esta exposición, incluyendo un mural y varias obras pintadas en cartón, buscan capturar las diversas energías y el espíritu de Buenos Aires a travéz de imágenes de mujeres, piel, textura y movimiento.

“Yo pinto lo que me mueve.” dice Díaz Brarda. "...lo que me deja en carne viva. Lo que me inspira pasión, que me seduce, que me duele, eso que me mata. Buenos Aires me mata... me mata con su caos, su maravilla, sus sonidos, su música. El tango."

Este evento es gratis y abierto al público. Refrigerios serán servidos.


Casa de la Cultura / Center for Latino Arts is pleased to present en carne viva, an exhibition of acrylic and tempera paintings by Arlington-based artist Romina Diaz Brarda.

Romina Diaz Brarda was born in Buenos Aires in the 1970’s, a very dark age in the country’s varied political history. Perpetually inspired by painting and sculpture, Diaz Brarda constructs works which she hopes will interact with the viewer on a fundamental level; stripped down. Raw.

In English, ‘en carne viva’ loosely translates to ‘raw flesh’. This collection of works, including a large wall mural and several works painted on cardboard, seeks to capture the diverse energies and the spirit of Buenos Aires through texture, images of women, skin, movement and unified extremes.

“I paint what moves me.” Diaz Brarda says. “…What leaves me raw. That which inspires passion in me, that which seduces me, that which hurts me, that which kills me. Buenos Aires kills me... It kills me with its chaos, its wonder, its sounds, its music. The tango.”

This event is free and open to the public. Refreshments will be served.
