Peruvian artist Milagros Pongo
AN EXHIBITION of the works of Peruvian artist Milagros Pongo (www.milagrospongo.blogspot.com) opened on Thursday evening, Dec. 9, 2010, at Gary Taylor Art Gallery in Washington, D.C.
Ambassador Rigoberto Gauto of Paraguay, Peruvian artist Milagros Pongo, and Fernando Quir?, Deputy Chief of Mission at the Embassy of Peru
THIS IS the artist’s latest collection of abstract paintings in mixed techniques inspired by the work of Rhonda Byrne’s “The Power.” The 20 paintings in medium and large formats reflect the strength that each human being carries within themselves, that creative force that causes people to freely address their life and destiny of their choice. That force is summarized in one feeling – “love.”
EVERY PAINTING reflects this strength in the field of the human relations, work, health and daily life. Each piece was made with golden laminas and essential oils used in aromatherapy from South Africa. With this exhibit the artist will end her cultural tour that started in January in Punta del Este, Uruguay, in March in Peru, in April in Murcia, Spain, in May in South Africa, in July in Paraguay, in August in Venice, Italy, and now in Washington, D.C.
