From November 8th to December 6th

Milan, October 17, 2017 – All the multiforme universe of the female, its creator and destructive power at the same time, steadily clashing between earth and sky. A tribute to the femininity essence rather than to the woman.
The Hernandez Art Gallery in via Copernico in Milan hosts from November 8th to December 6th AnimaDonna, the most complete selection of works from the homonymous collection signed by the Madrid artist Jose Molina.
A careful selection of fatty pencil designs in which some oils and works of mixed technique stand out to embellish a gallery that tells and at the same time pleases, enhances and raises the qualities of feminine, from vital power to parenting demiurgical force, from maternal care to ‘ abnegation that sometimes becomes sacrifice of self.
All in all, there are about thirty works that will be exposed to the public, chosen among those made by the artist and ideally divided into 18 chapters. A monumental, interdisciplinary work of which the Hernandez Art Gallery will exhibit in a month, November, celebrating the International Day Against Women’s Violence (Saturday 25).
Painter, writer, sculptor and anthropologist, the thousand faces of José Molina. “AnimaDonna” – synthesizes the artist – arises from the need to investigate the female world by linking it to the historical period we are experiencing. It is the look of those who want to explore the essence of the female qualities that exist in each of us, men and women. ”
The exhibition, which will be inaugurated on Thursday, November 7 at 7 pm, includes homage to important women of history, saints and martyrs but not only, who have contributed to the story from the artist’s accurate research, but also as symbols of life primigenia that animates the woman, with monumental works such as Lucy, exhibition guide image (*).
And then there is all the theme of nature, admirably expressed in form and content with mixed technique that mutants stolen items to the earth like wood, stones, moss, branches and grass. But if female is impossible to imprison, it is also the work, so much that Molina plays to scratch, work, and shaping powerful frames, in an ideal creative and material continuity.
“In the face of the female world, we find ourselves inevitably contemplating all the wealth,” Molina explains. “For this reason, I have fragmented the ability to express myself in many different techniques and styles: oil, watercolor, pencil, silk screen, engraving, sculptural elements the strong link between woman and nature. This link is not just a suggestion, but a concrete invitation to respect the earth, to find the female within us. ”
