Impressing exhibition of Nanon Morsink’s textil art sculptures and paintings at Galería Isolina Arbulu, Marbella
The first time I saw works by Nanon Morsink was when I was visiting the Art Walk Cómpeta some years ago. Seeing the work the first time I knew at once that I had met a very special talented artist. The happier I am now for the chance to visit the impressing exhibition of Nanon Morsink’s textil art sculptures and paintings at Galería Isolina Arbulu. Great pleasure to connect again with Nanon who’s way I have been following since.
Two figures symbolize several ways to connect with each other. Their arms are extra long to be able to get in touch with each other. They are in touch, but how? How easy this way of connecting can be changed and create another situation we all experience now in Corona times. Nanon Morsink, the creator of this couple and this exquisite exhibition demonstrates how easy connecting can be turned into separation. Still facing each other the long arms are used for embracing themselves. They become kind of a safety shield around each figure – Nanon demonstrates with this perfect symbolic arrangement what we experience just happening in our times.
Lost souls make strong spirits is the title of this exhibition in the beautiful GALERIA ISOLINA ARBULU who presents a most impressive choice of works by Dutch artist NANON MORSINK.
A collection of beautiful black paintings that shine
A visit not to be missed when in Málaga. Galeria Javier Marin presents black mysteries by José Luis Valverde.
Just a short stroll of 5 minutes from my very appreciated CAC Málaga (Centro de Arte Contemporáneo ) where we admired the exhibition “Gold rush” by Jules de Balincourt we had the chance to see a collection of beautiful black paintings that shine by José Luise Valverde, of whom we had just discovered two paintings which are exhibited in the CAC. About two years ago I got to know the artist quartier Las Lagunillas in Málaga. For my husband’s birthday I had booked a guided tour through this fascinating area which included the visit of several artist’s studios. It’s always so nice to meet artists in their studio and see them at work. The Málaga artist José Luis Valverde shared his studio with Victoria Maldonado, a very gifted artist who’s mainly white and fragile objects contrast beautifully the black and heavy works by José Luis. If you are interested to read more about this quartier and its artists just push here.
After having seen some works in progress in José Luis studio, the happier I am now to see this beautiful collection on show at the Galeria Javier Marinin Málaga’s Soho district.
Have a look into the artist’s studio….
A special experience was it to see an artist working with lots of black oil paintings, imagen!
The exhibition at Galeria Javier Marin
Normally paintings in dark colors are not my favorite. But with this collection I saw at the gallery I can easy be friend with. Of course as a painter who is attracted to vibrant colors I was most driven to a painting that
The running exhibition in the the Gallery Isolina Arbulu in Marbella
I saw the introduction picture and the title of the exhibition some weeks ago when I was not yet in Marbella. But the painting and the title captured my attention at once and stick in my head. I was very happy that I got the chance to visit the exhibition which will run till 10th of November.
“Entre el dolor y la nada” by Pablo Mercado
I have visited several exhibitions in the private gallery of Isolina Arbulu. The gallery has it’s home in an impressive house that you find at the end of some up winding streets. Each time I visited an exhibition I was very pleased and surprised by her choice of interesting artists as well of Isolina’s ability to introduce the artist and the intention behind the art.
The title of this exhibition, which impressed me at once, refers to the writer William Faulkner and his book “The wild palms”. “Given the choice between the experience of pain and nothing, I would choose pain.”
Marbella Galeria Isolina Arbulu presents fascinating glas objects by Gala Fernández
This was a great surprise! I had seen some photos of the glas objects and was a bit reluctant to visit the exhibition – I tent to visit mainly exhibitions with paintings or photos. But as I like the Gallery of Isolina Arbulu and like to know what is happening in the art world of Marbella I made an appointment. How good I did it! I found fascinating glass objects in Marbella! It turned out that these glas objects had the power to fascinate!

Organic Geometry – a collection of fascinating glass works
The exhibition “Organic Geometry” is part of an experimental project, a series of glass vases blown inside handmade copper wire geometrical structures by the artist and designer Gala Fernández Montero.
Nicely presented in a very puristic surrounding, getting their very special light that creates an interaction between the shadows and the objects, the glas works develop a special magic. The longer we looked at them, the all the more they revealed to us their special character and the more enthusiastic and fascinated we were. A good part of this was due to the sensitive comments of the knowledgeable gallery owner Isolina Arbulu.
The charm of these fascinating glass objects for me is a mixture of vintage atmosphere, workplace atmosphere and the poesy of an art work. I especially liked the transparent objects. They reminded me of places where fisher have their nets and you see these transparent glass balls. Some feeling of the good old times come up.
Award winning artist in Marbella
This exhibition was planned for March and like so many others had to be canceled. The artist had seen the venue but was then stuck due to the Covid 19 crisis and didn’t yet have the chance to see her exhibition. But next week she will fly over to Marbella and visit the gallery.
If you happen to be in Marbella or Málaga, don’t miss…
Dieter Nuhr in Reiners Contemporary Art Marbella
If you happen to be in Marbella or Málaga, don’t miss these exhibitions. In Marbella there are two gallery shows I am interested in and I would like to recommend. Both galleries – run by knowledgeable, charming gallerists – present new shows in June/July. I visited the presentation of Dieter Nuhr’s large-format painterly photographs – in the “new normal” style- masks obligatory – at Gallery Reiners Contemporary Art. The gallerist Flor Reiners offers visits by appointment ( phone 628374676) , Email: email@example.com Thanks to Gabriela Berner, journalist of the German SUR I can show you here her article on the opening of the show of Dieter Nuhr!
Here is a little sneak prewiew into some photos to be seen. Due to the “New normal” and the fact that this was the first time after months to put a feet into a temple of art and on top to get to know a new gallery, I forgot t take photos. Two of the paintings you can see in the exposition in Marbella and more of these great works. I added two paintings from other exhibitions to demonstrate the size of this wonderful painterly photos that tell stories of Dieter Nuhrs travels worldwide. They guide our view on walls that show many layers and have seen many events and many years pass by. The work of time.
The exhibition will be open till 6th of July. It is open by appointment for 6 persons with masks. (Flor Reiners; 62803740674) or firstname.lastname@example.org

If you happen to be in Marbella and are interested in art and art exhibitions, you might be interested in joining my newsletter. Next time I will write about an exhibition, which I haven`t visited yet but hopefully will see next week. The exhibition promises to be interesting. The gallery Isolina Arbulu, Marbella, presents Gala Fernandez Montero – Organic Geometry. It will open tomorrow , 12th of June, by private invitation.
This week I visited another fantastic exhibition in Marbella. The Gallery Isolina Arbulu , one of the treasure in Marbellas gallery world is worth to be discovered. Till end of March Isolina Arbulu is showing a very fine and silente exhibition – a combination of photos and sculptors that are in a great dialog with each other. The photos are taken during her activity as a consultant in the poorest regions of the world by ANGÉLICA ARBULU. Angélica tries to show the beauty in rather isolated places that don’t attract attention on the first glance. A wonderful match with theses photos are the taking sculptures by Málaga artist STELLA KAMAZÓN. Built from recycled materials the figures make a great link to the geographical areas where the photos come from. Stella shows nearly faceless figures which are lost in an other isolated world, the world of technique, phone and internet.
I was already taken by this wonderful combination in the entrance hall – such a great dialog between these two art works!
Here is a small choice of the art works to be seen!
The atmosphere of the gallery is very inviting, situated in a beautiful workplace. It has the notion of a very private house. We were happy to have Isolina as our guide and then the gallery for ourselves after having made a telephone appointment! Its a recommendation to make an appointment to be sure you meet Isolina Arbulu in person and get the interesting information about the exhibition.
I loved the title “Beyond the Horizon” and this description very much, especially as I was also engaged with the horizon when I working on my “Desert Trip Print Series”.
