Lyrical Abstraction

This year Catalonia is celebrating the 100th birthday of poetess and visual artist Felícia Fuster. As her Fundació remarks, the artist ‘developed a strong desire for freedom in all areas of her life’.

Below an example of her work, in this case an oil painting on wood of the series ‘Lyrical Abstraction’.

About her artwork the philosopher and art critic Arnau Puig is quite clear: “Fuster’s creative actions deserve attention because they always show an aim to elaborate unknown worlds and realities, which is Art’s main pursuit”.

The fact is that, like some poets as Eluard, Chard or Octavio Paz, Felícia Fuster has an existential touch which achieves its aims through research on the meaning of language“.

Francesc Parcerisas, poet and literary critic

This quote appears on the website of the Fundació Felícia Fuster, a private, non-profit organization created by the poet and artist Felicia Fuster herself. Its aims are “introducing the poetry and art of the author, awarding young artists’ projects, and spreading Catalan language abroad. The Foundation also provides scholarships for people without financial means.”

Felícia was born in 1921, so this year it is time to celebrate the ‘Any Felíca Fuster‘. That is why you will regularly read a post concerning this versatile woman.
