IMPULSE ART by PONTET

‘Impulse Art’ is a live performance where the rhythm of music inspires artist Daniel Pontet to paint with his feet and hands. It is the type of event that grew out of the Action Painting circles, a movement born in the decade of the 1950s that revolutionized the concept of art. Painters no longer approached their canvas with a set image in mind; it is an interaction between the artist and whatever the material may be before the individual's hands or feet. From this encounter derives an image, a sort of residue -the finished painting- and the canvas becomes just a witness of this moment. In this new redefinition, art is seen as an act rather than a product or an object.

Press (Banda Oriental): ART BASEL WEEK IN MIAMI. IMPULSE ART @ 2013 MIAMI RIVER


Semana del Art Basel en Miami (Diciembre 5-8) 
PONTET: ‘IMPULSE ART’ EN LA FERIA DE ARTE MIAMI RIVER 2013  por Banda Oriental (Nota de Redacción) 

“Cuando estoy en mis performances, una energía mágica comienza a fluír en el aire junto con el ritmo musical que escucho y veo mis pies que danzan impulsivamente sobre la tela. En cierto momento, no siento que soy yo quien está ahí… es la música que fluye a través de mí y me mueve. Aparecen imágenes en mi mente y trato de reproducirlas…”

En diciembre se vive, en el sur de la Florida, uno de los acontecimientos más significativos a nivel internacional y de gran importancia para el país no sólo económica –con un ingreso de millones de dóllares- sino culturalmente: la “Semana del Art Basel”. Los amantes del arte provenientes de todos los continentes, coleccionistas, artistas, gallerías, museos y también curiosos se dan cita en Miami.

Aparte de la conocida feria europea Art Basel, se destacan muchas otras que nos brindan un panorama del acontecer en el mundo del arte, en tan sólo una semana. Son realmente  muy pocos los días para apreciar este enorme volumen de obras y propuestas presentadas por los artistas.
