“My paintings convey feelings that come from the heart and are infused with vivid memories, vibrant colors, intense emotions, and parts of everyday reality.”
Oceans are a source of life, beauty, sustenance, and serenity for all of humanity. Their colors inspire musicians, poets, painters, and all who feel an almost magical connection with the mysteries hiding in their depths.
Since time immemorial, we have enjoyed their benefits, their greatness, and the vast wealth stored within them that balances the lives of all species on the planet.
Oceans are those great masses of water that lull the coasts with their waves, they are the protagonists of extraordinary moments in history, they are places to vacation and a destination where you can simply settle in front of them… and delight in their undeniable beauty.
The characteristic blues of the Caribbean are a haven of peace, beauty, and therapy – mystical colors that radiate strength, tranquility, security, and energy.
In this exhibition, Kenia Lima will take us on an exciting journey, full of sensitivity and love for oceans and the importance of their conservation.
“I was both humbled and honored to have Mysteries of the Sea 2 selected among 20 renowned national artists on exhibit at the Jolgorio Gastronómico on August 25, 2022, at the Museum for National Identity (MIN) in Tegucigalpa, Honduras.” – KENIA LIMA
Highlighting the richness of traditional food, Honduran culture, origins, and art, the Museum of National Identity (MIN) made the Jolgorio Gastrnomico a sensory experience full of artistry and aroma, complemented by music and entertainment.
Everyone who participated and attended contributed to the sustainability of this most important museum.
The Honduran Institute of Inter-American Culture (IHCI) inaugurated the 27th Biennial of Painting on July 22, at the Museum for National Identity, in Tegucigalpa.
With the support of the United States government through its embassy in Honduras, this long-running competition aims to promote personal and artistic development as well as cultural exchange.
Each artist is free to choose their own subject matter which allows them to demonstrate their capabilities, inspiration, and message.
Following the pandemic, social and economic realities naturally emerged as prevalent themes at the 2022 Biennial through a wide range of visual languages ranging from social realism to purely conceptual work.
Three esteemed international curators selected 38 paintings from among 131 works submitted by artists from Honduras, Central America, South America, and Europe.
When seen together, it’s evident that these artists care about the world we live in. They found inspiration and beauty in what we have today and may not have tomorrow while seeking possibilities for development and protection of the environment through their work.
The Biennial of Painting will remain open to the public at the Museum for National Identity until September 18, 2022.
