Within the framework of the EU project CreArt, Croatian Association of Fine Artists will once again mark this year’s European day of artistic creativity on March 21, by implementing the project entitled Art in the Community: Redefining Heritage of the Association of Artists Zemlja.

Under the guidance of the authors of the project, Maja Flajsig i Josip Zanki with the aim of examining one of the most important points in Croatian art history, which is the legacy of the Association of Artists Zemlja and of Krsto Hegedušić in the contemporary context.

The Art in the Community: Redefining Heritage of the Association of Artists Zemlja project will be based on exchanging experiences, a reciprocal collaboration of artists and work within the local community and students' research work (ethnography and field training). It examines legacy of the Association of Artists Zemlja and of Krsto Hegedušić in the contemporary context, not only to bring it closer to the international framework, but to derail marginal cultures and phenomena from a postcolonial discourse, in which they are viewed only as a part of ethnographic research and not as equal to other art practices. Within the framework of the Art in the Community: Redefining Heritage of the Association of Artists Zemlja project, the established paradigms related to Krsto Hegedušić, the Association of Artists Zemlja and naive art are examined, i.e. their goals, methodology, character of art created between categories and systems of functioning in a political context. 

Part of the project will consist of student research of the Hlebine and Velebit phenomena linked through workshops, public lectures and research under the mentorship of Nevena Škrbić Alempijević from the Department of Ethnology and Cultural Anthropology, Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences. The other student research section is represented by Sebastijan Dračić and students of the Academy of Fine Arts, who will create joint collaborative works in workshops with local naive artists in Hlebine and Koprivnica. Mount Velebit (Paklenica National Park) will be the location where they will organize workshops together with mountaineers, tourists and locals, based on the traditional skills of the area and implement art interventions. Bojan Mrđenović, Luka Hrgović, Maja Rožman and Mark Cullen, will participate in the workshop and exhibition part of the project. Their works will be exhibited at the Karas Gallery, together with the works of students and naive artists. 

As a key part of project, on March 21. at the Academy of Fine Arts (formerly Hegedušić's master workshop, current Department of Art Conservation and Restoration) will be organised workshops, presentation and exhibition based on archival materials and artwork related to Hegedušić and his students.

At the workshop naive artists will teach students and visitors about glass painting and other traditional techniques of naive painting.

Scientific conference will be held at the Academy of Fine Arts in Zagreb 7th of May, dedicated to the legacy of Krsto Hegedušić, and especially to the work done in the Association of Artists Zemlja and to mentoring work within the Academy of Fine Arts' master workshop. The project presentation and video-screening will take place at Pallas Project/Studios in Dublin, Krsto Hegedušić Gallery in Petrinja and the Gallery of Naive Art in Hlebine during fall 2020.

Del 6 de febrero al 22 de marzo

De martes a domingo de 12 a 14h y de 19 a 21h



Conocí a nuestro pintor hace ya muchos años, cuando éramos muy niños y estudiábamos en las aulas de La Salle. Ya por entonces le gustaba mucho dibujar y lo hacía muy bien, nadie le disputaba la matrícula de honor en esa asignatura. Ya desde entonces apuntaba maneras de artista.
Años después he seguido con interés su ya larga trayectoria artística y en los últimos tiempos nos vemos con frecuencia, evocando los ya lejanos y entrañables recuerdos de estudiantes en nuestro querido colegio.
Hace unos días, una fría mañana de un otoño invernal visité su grato estudio y sala de arte en el bajo del número 23 de la calle Dos de Mayo, en una casa de hermosa fachada del Valladolid de siempre. Allí pude examinar los cuadros que había preparado para su próxima exposición, ésta que ahora contemplamos en la sala de la Diputación del Teatro Zorrilla. Siempre es toda una experiencia visitar el estudio de un pintor, pero en el caso de la sala de arte de Pascual Aranda, fue todo un placer y un deleite poder contemplar y disfrutar de los últimos óleos, acuarelas y dibujos de este esforzado y entusiasta artista.
Los cuadros tienen todos ellos una temática común: la ciudad y su provincia. Valladolid es el motivo fundamental de toda su obra. Y ello no es de extrañar, ya que nuestro pintor ha sabido reflejar como pocos la esencia y el alma del paisaje de nuestra ciudad y nuestra tierra. Pocos artistas han captado sus rincones y escenarios con tanto acierto y sensibilidad.
Valladolid, su viejo trazado urbano, pese a los desmanes cometidos contra su patrimonio arquitectónico y monumental, es aún una ciudad bella, elegante, que todavía conserva ese ambiente sereno y apacible de otros tiempos; es una población histórica que, lejos del bullicio y el ajetreo de las grandes ciudades y a pesar del inevitable ruido y las molestias del tráfico, aún invita al paseo, a descubrir y recrearse en la contemplación de sus calles, plazas y jardines.
En los óleos y acuarelas de Pascual Aranda está reflejada la esencia de Valladolid, una ciudad que no es nunca austera, triste ni sombría, sino luminosa y del más grato colorido. Son los suyos unos paisajes urbanos sencillos, en los que huye del artificio, una pintura sin retórica, en la que capta la serena poesía de los rincones de nuestra ciudad.
El pintor sabe elegir muy bien los escenarios de Valladolid y sus pueblos. No recurre a los ya tradicionales y manidos puntos de vista, propios de tarjeta postal, sino que acierta a descubrir ángulos y encuadres casi inéditos, siempre evocadores y de indudable belleza.
Si bien ha sido siempre un buen dibujante, lo que se comprueba en sus cuadernos con cientos de dibujos, tomados siempre del natural, entre los que destacan los apuntes de desnudos realizados ante el modelo vivo, Pascual Aranda se siente ante todo un pintor amante de la luz y el color, que son en todo momento los protagonistas absolutos de su obra. La vibración y los destellos de luz hacen que sus lienzos brillen rutilantes a través siempre de una paleta de muy rica amplitud cromática. Llama la atención la variedad del color de sus cuadros, que enlazan y evocan con la tradición de nuestros grandes paisajistas vallisoletanos post-impresionistas (García Lesmes, Castro Cires, Manuel Mucientes o Maffei). Son los suyos unos colores que van desde las gamas cálidas hasta los más intensos rojos o amarillos cegadores, pasando por unos sugestivos tonos violetas y anaranjados.
Y al lado de esa riqueza y luminosidad del color, su obra llama la atención asimismo por su libertad y soltura de pincelada. Es la suya una pintura empastada, en la que emplea una materia densa e incluso pastosa, una factura que añade en ocasiones una nota de espontaneidad casi expresionista.
Todo ello se puede comprobar ahora en esta exposición en la que el artista nos presenta los últimos frutos de su pintura dedicada una vez más a Valladolid y su provincia. De nuevo el paisaje en su más genuina expresión: urbano y rural.
Esta nueva muestra constituye sin duda una gozosa invitación a mirar la ciudad y sus villas con un enfoque totalmente alejado de viejos tópicos, aquellos heredados de la visión de una Castilla sombría y casi dramática. El Valladolid que se nos ofrece es muy otro, muy diferente, es un Valladolid luminoso, vital, lleno de claridad y riqueza cromática.
Disfrutemos, pues, una vez más, de la serenidad y belleza de una pintura siempre grata y auténtica como la de Pascual Aranda.
