Timeless Beauty combines the sculptures and mixed media works of Spanish artist Manolo Valdés with the lush fine art photography of Simon Procter.
Valdés, inspired by such artists as Velázquez, Matisse, Picasso and Lichtenstein, uses a range of mediums including paper, burlap, aluminum, bronze and iron to create female busts and portraits, many absent of facial features, that convey an aura of timelessness. His work has been exhibited in galleries and museums around the world including the Guggenhaim Bilbao in Spain. He is also the recipient of numerous awards and honors including the National Medal for Painting, Fine Arts, Spain.
Procter studied fine art for many years, originally focusing on both painting and sculpture and has developed a unique style that synthesizes fashion photography with the aesthetics of classical painting. His work has been featured in V Magazine, Vogue Nippon, Harper’s Bazaar and The New York Times and is held in gallery and museum collections worldwide.
