We are starting the art-season of 2015-16 with an exhibition of Eduard Malvehy. He has a fine style which produces a pleasant feeling. In Europe we have just come back from holidays and we are returning to the noise of daily life. So, we are very thankful for this peaceful view of the urban spaces in which we live.
Ignasi Cabanas is welcoming us and he is introducing Eduard, a well-known artist at the Rusiñol Gallery, because this is the 5th time that he exhibits with us. The title of the collection —“Landscapes 2015”— announces its content. In this collection we get a feeling of order and placidity which embraces very “cosmopolitan” landscapes, like New York, Paris, London, and other also urban, but more “rustic,” like Cadaqués, Vic, Sitges, which are closer to home.
Also Mr. Josep M. Cadena greets the attendees in the start of this period. He acknowledges the Rusiñol Gallery and its managers —the family Cabanas— for «their will of continuity and perseverance at the same place». Malvehy’s work consists of «polite painting», he says. Some and other landscapes, maybe due to their cubist style and the straight architectonic lines, transmit a feeling of order and idealism of urban life. Here we perceive a collective will to overcome. On the whole, all this brings us a feeling of «happiness and awareness that things can always get better».
