Works 1956-1966

Pérez Celis - Museo Virtual

Artist is one that overcomes all difficulties between the work and himself. The drawbacks are of all type: psychologic, physical, material. I found in “The mediocre man” a way for the inconformity, to solve the search of my own identity. Pérez Celis

Autor retrato, Pérez Celis, 1956, From the collection of: Pérez Celis - Museo Virtual
As he repeated in the numerous interviews, somewhere between 11 and 12 years old, Pérez Celis, discovers Jose Ingenieros’ book “The Mediocre Man” and decides to become a painter. Arrives at home makes a fire with the antique cartoons he had been designing, buys some paint tubes, a canvas and paints his first work “Landscape 1957”.
Mi amigo Tirone, Pérez Celis, 1956, From the collection of: Pérez Celis - Museo Virtual
“Not everybody as you, get ecstatic in front of a twilight, do not dream in front of a dawn or vibrate with a storm...Only a few are avid pursuers of some fantastic idea, a chimera, worship philosophers, artists and thinkers, that turned into ultimate synthesis their visions of being and eternity, dreaming beyond reality. Beings as you, whose imagination is full of ideals and whose sentiments polarize their whole personality, belong to a special human race: the idealists. José Ingenieros.
Violenta como el ciclón, suave como una rosa, Pérez Celis, 1956, From the collection of: Pérez Celis - Museo Virtual
From this starting point he never abandoned his vocation, the discipline and the sacrifice to reach his ideal. Josefa, his mother supported him, despite the fact that the family did not approve it. He always felt around him the accompaniment of the artists of Liniers neighborhood of those times.
La declaración, Pérez Celis, 1957, From the collection of: Pérez Celis - Museo Virtual
“The ideal is a manifestation of the spirit towards some perfection….. a point and a moment between infinite options existing in time and space. The ideals, for being visions anticipating the future, influence the behavior and are a natural tool for human progress. The ideals are in a perpetual transformation, as the forms of the reality they anticipate”. José Ingenieros

Anatonia is an imaginary city, beyond poetry and art. As a matter of fact it has been created some ten years ago by the poet CM Caron, a place I feel myself identified with. I believe that in a certain way it accompanies me throughout my entire work. Perez Celis in interview at the opening of the tapestry show in the Gallery El Sol.
