NEW YORK, NY.- Instituto Cervantes New York is presenting “The words you keep” featuring a selection of nearly a dozen of portrait paintings by Spanish artist Luis Burgos (Varea, La Rioja, 1957).

On view from February 13th through March 21st, “The words you keep” explores through these portraits using unique strong characters, mostly women, the meaning of words never told, those hidden behind closed lips and lingering gazes.

In this exhibition, Luis Burgos invites viewers to imaginatively guess these intriguing characters, whom become stronger as time passes. They grow older, wiser. Sometimes they look defiantly. These characters started to show themselves while they were being painted as they established a dialogue with the artist.

“I had to come here to have an almost mystical revelation and to see hundreds of thousands of magicians, acrobats, illusionists. Life is a circus. New York is a circus,” said Burgos about these artworks, mostly made in New York, where he came to reaffirm himself in his work.

Colors play a main role. They are surprising. Strong, saturated, bright. Impossible to mix. Different tones create an ambiance, atmosphere with lights and shadows translating into the feelings of its characters. Pigments play a special role. The eyes, like windows to the soul, stand out over all.

Instituto Cervantes New York, along with Coolture Impact, the largest interactive public art platform, invites the public to the second site of this art project, located on Coolture Impact site on 42nd street and 8th Avenue, to explore new technologies, art content and social interaction through the artist´s pieces.

The public is welcome to be part of the pieces of art mixing with the characters of the exhibition at Instituto Cervantes and the buildings of the city of New York.

In 1977, Luis Burgos started his Studies of Drawing in the School of Arts and Crafts of Logroño (Spain), under Professor Joaquín López Reina. Two years later, he moved to Barcelona to study at the Sant Lluís Circle School and a private academy. In 1983, he started working with Spanish painter and restorer Arnaldo Lodosa who helped him improve his technique. He has had exhibitions in Logroño, Madrid, Barcelona, Bilbao (Spain), Brussels (Belgium), Biarritz (France), New York (USA), London (UK), Beijing (China), or Havana (Cuba).
