Cuban Fund of Cultural Goods welcomes new personal exhibition from Martha Petrona Jimenez Perez

Camaguey- The personal exhibition "The secret of my goats", by the artist Martha Petrona Jimenez Perez, was inaugurated on Tuesday October 18 at the Amalia Gallery, at the Cuban Fund of Cultural Goods, subsidiary in Camaguey.

"With this particular delivery of gouaches with ink drawing, Martha Petrona Jimenez Perez uses goats based on the distinctive typology they hold: its mythological origins, their physical characteristics, lifestyle and aesthetic significance. So now overlook these beasts, tamed by the conceptualization, as vital elements of the sample but linked to other codes preconceived by the artist in previous series and in her personal life", said about the exhibition the curator Yaniel Perez Guerra.

The curator also explained that Martha Jimenez "represents goats and women together with their adjacent properties, to point to the intense interpersonal connections between individuals of different or the same sex, also to the filial, bridal, fraternal, maternal and spiritual links. In this sense “The secret of my goats” invites not only to discover the key to succeed in managing relationships with others, at the same time refers to a confidential message from the herd that remains silent, and can be found in these artworks, but hidden”.

Martha Petrona Jimenez Perez has worked in painting, sculpture, ceramics, engraving and installation. She has been awarded in several competitions in the world, and holds the UNESCO Prize since 1997. She has reached high prestige during her career, backed by the specialized critics of the national and international art circuits.

At the opening of the personal exhibition of Jimenez Perez they were present, in addition to the artist, her family and her team; officers and directors of the Cuban Fund of Cultural Goods, the Provincial Department of Culture, the UNEAC, the ACAA, and well known artists of the territory.
