BIOGRAPHY

 

Of northern roots, Gretchen Velarde is born on november, 1979. Her career starts late in life, looking for the power to express herself with complete freedom. It is with this emphasis that her work is thought to generate feelings of tranquility and pretend for the spectator to interpret them on their own, creating with this, spaces of free speculation, emotionally as well as spiritually. Her canvases are frequently characterized by her frankness and direct temperament, and this leads us to strong and sincere outviews in her work. Her abstractionism tilts towards the lyrical and poetic.

 

She has accomplished exhibitions in important venues together with great international artists, even with a short career, among which stand out her selection to represent Mexico in Latinamerica, what unites us for UNESCO, exhibitions at reknowned museums in Mexico such as the Gallery Museum of Mexican Art, Bicentennial Towers; Zanbatha, Museum of the Valley of the Moon;

 

Homage to Leonardo Da Vinci, Florence, Italy; Exhibitions in Dublin, Ireland; Great Art Auction, Great Hotel, Mexico City; Philately, postal stamp exhibition in Buenos Aires, Argentina; Murals in Blue, self-portraits, itinerant collective  Exhibition, Mexico; Synergies, collective exhibition, in the Meritorious National School of Teachers in Mexico City; among others. Invited to participate as exhibitor in the framework of the International Museum Day. Her curriculum includes publications in magazines, newspapers, catalogs and blogs. She is also a member of prestigious artists associations such as ARTAC AIAP Mexico, among others.

 

“Art for me is the power to express ourselves freely. When I take a brush, I feel  completely alive, the world disappears and I give a part of myself in every piece of my work. I would like to contribute with my view to an aesthetic movement  that promotes hope."
