MISCELLANY or ROUTES THROUGH THE IMAGINARY

JORGE CASTRO FLOREZ IN THE "CLUB INFORMACIÓN" IN ALICANTE

.....A new exhibition of Jorge Castro introduces us into the creative sequences of his imagenary world, made reality in bronze, copper, iron, clay and marble.

.....The Artist, who passed away in 2011, remains alive through his temporary exhibitions that give a meaning to his persistant banging on the anvil and to so many hours of waiting, like a bewildered father in a delivery room, by the heat of the melting bronze in the crucible, seeing his works gestate and being born.

.....The exhibition MICELLANY or ROUTES THROUGH THE IMAGINARY (Club Información - Alicante, November 30, 2012 to January 6, 2013) brings the visitor in touch with the different stages of the international sculptor, and opens the doors of his workshop to rescue some molds, a frozen image of lost wax, some unfinished idea.

.....Also, on he walls of the exhibition room, some phrases, fragments of his poetry, of his broken voice in the loneliness of his latter years, when he reconciled his long workshop hours with an aromatic coffee and the exiting game of black-on-white.

.....In this exhibition, the universe created by J.Castro Florez brings together a solvent work among a variety of materials, leading us from volatile and tender snapshots of love and nature, to strong expressions about the injustices and contradictions of the human being.

Opening: Friday, November 30, 2012 at 20.00 hours

.....On June 26th last the Full Municipal Council approved unanimously the proclamation of Adopted Son.

.....Thus was promoted the memory of Jorge Castro Flórez, who throughout his creative period, and in his numerous exhibitions in Europe and America, in catalogues and presentations referred to, and declared belonging to the town that now honours him.

.....The Artist of Asturian offspring, born in Barcelona, and having lived in France, Uruguay and Canada, took around the name of Agost in all his artitstic interventions.

.....This recognition narrows the link between the sculptor and the town of Agost, adding his person and his memory to the Cultural Heritage of this community of the Province of Alicante.

.....Periplo, Group of Management and Communication of Jorge Castro Flórez' Work, publicly pronounces its gratitude towards all of the councellors who unanimously raised their hands to approve this well-deserved recognition.

CASTRO FLOREZ' WORK SEES THE LIGHT AGAIN

.....On Thursday the 5th of July next we will celebrate the first anniversary of the Artist's passaing away.

.....An interesting selection of his work, consisting of small and medium sized bronzes, as well as functional objects in copper, will be exhibited in the Casa de Cultura of Agost. In the same exhibition you will be able to see the Iberian Sphynxes, belonging to the collection of The Agost Municipality, in stone reproductions by Jorge Castro. These pieces, of great interest for the historic heritage of the town, are a recreation of the artist of the originals, situated between the sixth and first century BC, that were moved to the Louvre Museum in the 19th century. Nowadays one of them is kept in Spain, in the National Archaeologic Museum.

.....Apart from the artist's own collection, a great part of his work can be found in private collections and public institutions, mostly in Germany, France, Austria, U.S.A. and Canada.

.....Jorge Castro Florez developped his creative stage, especially the bronzes collection, during the almost four decades he has been living in this town in the province of Alicante, which now pays tribute to him.

.....The event -how could it be otherwise being the town one of an extraordinary musical tradition- will include musical interpretations as well as the acknowledgement of the title of Adopted Son of Agost, and the granting of the Award Escultor Castro Florez to three persons or institutions, yet to be revealed, that have co-operated and given their support to the expansion of the Artist's work.
