Artist Martha Jimenez joins festivities for 494 anniversary of Camaguey

Camaguey- Women that fly, personal exhibition of the artist Martha Jimenez in Camaguey, was inaugurated this Tuesday in the Provincial Library Julio Antonio Mella, as part of the activities for the 494 anniversary of the founding of the city.

Martha Jimenez, who is also known for her sculptural work, uses acrylic on canvas this time to express her concerns and reflections on women, their country and their lives. As in previous productions, the artist retakes the feminine theme, and loads of meanings with symbols like the buffoons, the wings, the fishes, and Cuba.

Battle, The seven riders of San Sebastian, Courtship, Sofia, Gift, Lunar Ascension, and Adrift, are the names of the works that integrate the exhibition. In all, there is a mixture of ocher colors and the characteristic blur of this artist.

The presentation of the artworks was attended by Flora Fong and Joel Jover -Camagueyan artists of universal projection- among other personalities of the arts in the province and the country.

Martha Jimenez has won important awards throughout her career. Among the most outstanding are the UNESCO prize in 1997, for a set of ceramics works, the International Handicraft Fair (FIART) in 1999, and more recently the Mentions in the ceramics biennials of Havana.
