Local sculptor opensLiberia show Wednesday
to A.M. Costa Rica - January 17, 2010

 Sculptor and artist Tony Jiménez premiers his exhibit in Guanacaste Wednesday from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m., at the Hidden Garden Art Gallery, located five kilometers west of the Liberia International Airport.

 Jiménez was born in Guanacaste, in 1978 and started sculpting professionally at age 19. Today he is a well-known artist that has participated in numerous exhibitions and collectives, said the gallery. His creations have easy to recognize characteristics because he uses various woods, which he obtains from trees that have fallen from natural causes, said the gallery.

 One particular characteristic of his art is that it integrates materials such as chains, wires and stones, elements that stand out in their dynamic and surrealist style, said the gallery."Nature was always with me. I played with it, cultivated the earth and saw its fruits," said Jiménez."I listened and it sang to me. I noticed its forms. From early childhood in my drawings the connection with animals, trees and mountains that my charcoal pencil lines traced was evident. Eventually my hands appreciated the size, shape and detail of these wonders. It is a pleasure and an honor for me to share this with the people of my country, Guanacaste. I thank God for this."

 The exhibit continues through Feb. 19. The gallery hours are Tuesday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
