Hiding Place of the Sirens in Tias
Head for Tias to take in a new exhibition that opened at the weekend at the Art Salon at the Ermita San Antonio, showcasing the work of Gran Canarian artist Nuria Meseguer and entitled ‘The Hiding Place of the Sirens’.
Nuria is already well established as a painter in the Canary Islands, having spent over a decade producing highly individual canvases, often starting with bubbles of paint as a backdrop for the figures in her work. The collection of paintings brought together in ‘The Hiding Place of the Sirens’ explores the human body moving underwater and features a number of her larger and more colourful canvasses.
The artist uses this theme to explore man’s relationship with the sea, which also works as a metaphor for the unconscious in her work. The exhibition runs until 7th January and is totally free of charge.
The gallery at the Ermita de San Antonio in Tias is open between 17.00 and 20.00 from Monday to Friday and from 10.00 to 14.00 on Saturday.
