Fernando Ureña Rib





''Fernando Ureña Rib is a modern painter. He is a universal artist, and part of that universality lies in the unabashed sensuality of his paintings.

They are permeated with sexual energy that speaks to every one on a subtle level, seducing the viewer almost against his will. Whether they are the erotic studies of nudes, or the ascending oblong forms of his Abstract Paintings.

These works appeal to our senses. His canvases are like large windows into another world, alien and yet disturbingly atavistic, demanding a second look. The shapes in Ureña Rib's canvases are alive, changing positions ever so slightly, there! Didn't that floating molecule of light just move?

The forms of Ureña Rib's works are born of a talent that is as spontaneous as it is organized. Brought up on classical Art and having done his share of figurative studies, the artist allowed his natural expression to find nourishment in that experience, grow and transform like living organism.

That exchange creates the movement found in Ureña Rib's art. The shapes, although Abstract, seem to be in a process of constant transformation, shifting and undulating with languid tranquility. Primitive as they may be with their molecular, smooth bodies, these forms are far from simple.

Their effect is powerful.

Beauty is a word critic should use with caution, and a soupcon of doubt. But Ureña Rib's paintings are beautiful in the abundance of impressions they provide, from the purely visual to the deeply psychological. They are doorways for us to walk through and discover "the importance of the small, forgotten things" and appreciate this generous artist who has breathed new life into our reality. ''
