'Made by mud and air', the new exhibition by Mercedes Bellido

With the title of ‘De barro y aire’ (Made by mud and air), the artist Mercedes Bellido will be the guest creator of this awaited live exhibition. She will present a series of unique still life pieces that reflect different types of traditional ceramics around the world. In the words of the artist, in these porcelains “the action takes place within the clay itself; the butterflies that surround the ceramic pieces are psychopompos that contain the souls or the vital essence of each one of these figures, because porcelain is something stopped in time”. Formed in the classrooms of the Faculty of Fine Arts of Cuenca, a place marked by the abstraction of artists such as Antonio Saura or Fernando Zóbel, Mercedes Bellido (Zaragoza, 1991) is one of the new promises of contemporary painting in Spain. The exhibition will take place on November 20 and 21 in Madrid (14 Velarde Street; from 11:00 to 22:00, uninterrupted).
