Pilar Pelaez’s creations come from her own intellectual appetite. Her production overcomes alignment and annihilation of the human being. Without creation, Art ends parasitizing History. The creative will is evolution itself and Art is its delight.
The will of Art achieves knowledge and representation but always reserves the right to freedom. Free will defines real art, and in its proposal, the artwork is demonstrated.
Pelaez uses informal techniques mixing materials randomly, which causes astonishment and versatility at the same time. However, what matters is her attitude to exude objects. In this distillation, Art seeks beauty and hides any sign of poverty. Some might say that it is illusory but so are the defects of the beloved; why people fall in love then?
Pilar Peláez was born in Mandayona (Guadalajara), grew up in La Mancha and currently lives in Madrid. She uses various techniques with her signature innovative ways of mixing materials both in paintings and chalcographic engravings. Pilar has done commissions for BMW and Espacio Diedro, among others. Her works have been selected for the Spanish National Chalcography, the Spanish National Library and the Madrid’s Council. She has won several awards, deserving special mention the First Medal in the Autumn’s Salon, under the patronage of the Kings of Spain, in Madrid in 1992 and the Engraving’s Honorable Mention by the Madrid’s Council in 1995.
Pilar’s art has been exhibited widely, in national and international exhibitions and art fairs: gallery Catarsis in Madrid -2001 and 2006-; Estampa fair in Madrid –2000 to 2008-; a retrospective at Cuenca’s Council Museum -2004-; gallery Texu in Oviedo -2008-; the group exhibition “The Body, the Flesh and the Soul” in diverse art centers in Northern Spain (Guernica, Santillana, Burgos) -2009 to 2011-; Sala d’art Pictograma in Castellon -2010-; Oasis fair in Osaka and Madrid -2003, 2009 and 2011-; Stockholm fair -2004-; Irun’s Contemporary Art fair -2011-; Marberlla’s fair -2011-, etc.
