With acrylic, charcoal, ink and collage, Ana Grace Jimenez presented to the public their views on the aesthetic and structural change experienced by cities in this century, trying to emulate part of the costa rica culture.

Under the titled Construction and deconstruction, the Costa Rican artist exhibits in the gallery Jose Luis Lopez Escarr�-cafe located at the National Theatre-13 mixed media pieces in which nature and buildings come together to reflect how it changes the social dynamics in cities on the planet.

The works are based on images and signs that Jimenez took over the last decade, and transforms them taking different elements and placing them in new contexts; this type of art is one of costa rica tourist attractions that bring more attention in the city.

"The creative energy is energy in constant motion, and that is why I draw much attention this type of construction and urban movement, because it is a reflection of the creative process," said Jimenez.

However, the national artist at work also recognizes a complaint with the construction of control.

"This exhibition shows a part that is no longer seen the part that is being hidden. Among all the development, let covering the nature, it is increasingly evident in our cities, "said Nana.

Graduated from the Fine Arts career, Jimenez majored in Mexico in restoration works on paper. Although most of his artistic experience in our country has developed as an art restorer, has never stopped painting.

"In many of the works to restore, extract images and inspiration that enrich my creations," he says.

Constructions and deconstructions, her second exhibition at Escarr� Lopez, was opened last Monday and will be open to the public until August 11, every day of the week from 9 a. m. to 7 p. m. There are several guided tours of costa rica that might take you to the exhibition.
