Isabel Guerra





























Biografìa:
Isabel Guerra.De familia acomodada y culta, fue hija única. Empezó a pintar a los doce años, de forma autodidacta, y expuso por primera vez a los quince en la sala Toisón de Madrid. Pasó largas horas estudiando a los grandes maestros en el Museo del Prado, frecuentando exposiciones y leyendo libros de arte. Ingresó a los 23 años, el 12 de noviembre de 1970, en el convento cisterciense del Monasterio de Santa Lucía en Zaragoza. Es miembro honorífico de la Real Academia de Bellas Artes de San Luis y correspondiente de la Real Academia de Bellas Artes y Ciencias Históricas de Toledo. En sus pinturas, de técnica velazqueña y perfecto hiperrealismo, aparece una lírica cercana a la teología mística cristiana. Cultiva ante todo el retrato y el bodegón y describe sobre todo momentos cotidianos en el trabajo de mujeres humildes o campesinas, su sueño o el de niñas, dándose una especial importancia a la luz. Así se cumple en su obra el lema benedictino de ora et labora, "reza y trabaja". Sus títulos evocan pasajes bíblicos; también cultiva el tema más estrictamente religioso de la historia sagrada. Su pintura, muy cotizada, ha sido vista en más de veinte exposiciones individuales y otras tantas colectivas desde 1960. En el año 2000 una retrospectiva suya en La Lonja de Zaragoza de 78 óleos y dibujos, una parte mínima de su abundante producción, fue visitada por más de 120.000 personas. Escribió y publicó El libro de la paz interior. Pinturas y mensajes (Barcelona: Syria, 2005), que ha sido reimpreso diez veces, en donde comenta 48 de sus cuadros.

Silvano Braido











Biography:
Silvano Braido Pittore was born in Treviso. He makes his home on the outskirts of Villorba in the Treviso countryside. As a child he discovered that he had a need not only to play, but also to draw, to communicate and express himself. Pencil, pastels, and, later, oil and acrylic became his inseparable, lifelong companions. During his school years at the academy of fine arts in Venice he branched out into various new areas. He never finished his studies due to famil y concerns, because he moves in a different world, and his need for selfexpression took a different path. The various jobs he took in the following period helped him make ends meet, but they never stopped him from feeling that he had a calling, and he continued to pursue painting in his spare time. Gradually, stubbornly, with cunning and long study, he set out down the path towards a career as a full time artist. This bold decision was dictated by his sensibility and his deep love for his work. He gained further experience with drawing and various painting techniques and did his first etchings. His first expositions immediately proved that he was a highly creative, captivating artist. Now, in his full maturity, with a refined sense for painting, he creates images of extraordinary beauty: never-ending skies and fantastic creatures that illuminate the scenes of his conversations with life.
