I NEED TO SEE

the future...

Welcome to my Online Gallery 

Thank you for visiting my virtual place. I hope you enjoy my artworks as much as I have enjoyed creating them.
In the following pages, you will find some articles, references, critics and a lot more accompanying and illustrating my work.
It´s hard for me to imagine and to create my characters, but it´s harder for an art writer to understand my imagination. So be patient with them.
Please, feel free to contact me anytime. The feeling and the contact with the human being is the raw material of my creations. 
Thanks a lot for being here.
Jesus Nodarse - La Habana, Cuba

 

My creations

I was born in Cuba, where everyone knows a little about everything. I´ve been trying to develop my own technique and here I show you some of my creations.
Siempre he visto la pintura como algo que se crea para mostrar, parece esta una verdad muy obvia y quizás lo es, pero en algún punto los términos de “expresión” “comunicación” “discurso” se van banalizando y se pierde la idea de que es algo para que los demás lo vean no para que se lea o se entienda del todo, un cuadro no es la ilustración de una idea ni un cartel de un concepto, no importa cuán profundo,  útil, divertido sea este.

 

Painting

My passion is to paint, no matter what, just paint. You can read my speech between brushstrokes.

Drawing

Drawing is the cornerstone of my characters. 

Murals

Working over large surfaces is another thing that I enjoy at the workshop.

He spent  2 years working full time for a gallery in the Middle East in Lebanon where his artwork is well known.  

 

The Critics

Jesus Nodarse shows in his painting a lot of sexy characters without any intellectual sophistication, enjoying the pleasures of the simple life. Characters for whom "life is only one and you have to live it". They feel no blush displaying their bodies, which "demonstrates the high esteem  they have for themselves, their vantage point, to feel superior" according to the painter. -Tony Piñera. <Read more>

Valoración crítica

Jesús Nodarse refleja en su pintura personajes sensuales, sin complejidad intelectual alguna, que disfrutan de la vida, de los placeres del cuerpo, de la vida sencilla. Personajes para quienes “la vida es una y hay que vivirla”. Que no sienten rubor en exhibir su cuerpo desnudo, con lo que “demuestran la alta estima que tienen de sí mismos, su posición de ventaja, de sentirse superiores”, al decir del pintor.

My Portfolio

Explore some samples of my recent work. As a Cuban painter, I´m inspired by the real woman, the woman that suffers and is happy at the same time.

The woman that fights during the day and is a peacemaker during the night. You will find other characters such a Minotaur, fishermen... They are part of my fantasy and my real life.

My Blog

Abordar la pintura como un reto técnico forma una parte importante de mis días en el taller, solucionar y componer un cuadro es para mí una motivación muy importante, me gusta verme como un hacedor de muebles, unos muebles parecidos a ventanas, de hecho ventanas falsas, como es el cine o el teatro donde el espectador se asoma  a realidades creadas artificialmente, en mi caso ventanas en las que tienes todo el tiempo para mirar solo un momento de esa escena un momento intemporal que no pasa.
