Opening: November 5th at 7.30 p.m.
Exhibition: Until November 17th, 2015.

Ricard Vaccaro (Barcelona, 1946) graduated in Arts from the Massana School and began his long career in the early seventies. Vaccaro has dedicated his life to artistic creation, from teaching -passing down the values of art-, to politics and the artistic practice.

Vaccaro has been able to articulate an artistic language which brings us to the symbolism of sensuality that the artist catches through transparencies, glazes and overlays. A personal, internal vision of painting and sculpture that brings the viewer to feel them intensely; as we feel sensuality. His love for aesthetics and creativity brings him to incorporate light to his latest works. A corporal light:he intense, warm and passionate. A light that acquieres volume in the artist's sculptures. But Ricard says he only writes, writes with colors and paints with the gesture of writing.

Ricard Vaccaro exhibits again at ÀMBIT, where in 2006 he displayed “Silenci i Plaer” (“Silence and Pleasure”). This time the show discovers 34 works on paper that the artist has performed as he entered and left the hospital. All of them set up a journey through the emotions of an artist struggling with the gesture and space, and also with life. An artist who repeats, like a mantra, that "every day is a privilege, a gift and a victory" and, as the poets, offers the best Vaccaro from physical exhaustion. As Vicenç Altaió says: “Art remains above fatality and regret”.

The exhibition will be presented by the prestigious Dr. Bonaventura Clotet and profit will go to benefit the fight against cancer.
