“Camilo Villanueva is a kind of alchemist who has access to an extra-ordinary state of consciousness which enables him to achieve his superior intention. Through his paintings, Camilo Villanueva generates energy, uplifts the subtle and precipitates the dense penetrating in deep spiritual messages of love and unity”.
“Camilo Villanueva’s paintings are exceptional mandalas which can be used as doors to the cosmic elements that transmute the soul into something higher which enables it to discover the key to its evolution. Having access to Camilo Villanueva’s paintings offers us the opportunity to enrich our spirit, discover the unseen and feel one with the Creation. His work is a kind of hologram that carries the information of totality”.
Villanueva was invited to participate in an exhibition in Venezuela and Mexico in 1996. He has also exhibited in Yango Art Gallery in Punta del Este, Uruguay and in the city of Buenos Aires in the Sheraton and the Conquistador hotels. In Buenos Aires his paintings have also been shown in the Argentine Rural Society, in La Maja art gallery in Patio Bullrich, a renowned commercial and art center, in Babilonia art gallery and in the Italian Society invited by the Buenos Aires National Office of Visual Arts. In the city of Córdoba he has exhibited in Posta del Sauce art gallery and in La Estancia.
“Camilo Villanueva paints the interior of the soul; he tries to express the energies that are there but remain unseen. Energies that are colorful dots of light leading to the horizon of the spirit. Camilo Villanueva does not intend to be representative nor figurative when he captures the interior of what is not evident. He focuses on the expression of energy, on transcribing its journey and showing its essence. By doing this, he does not try to capture this essence, he tries to show us that there is a kind of existence within other concrete, evident existences that are there but remain concealed.
We simply cannot see them because we are unwilling to do so. For Camilo Villanueva the fact that we are not aware of them is not important. What this Argentinean artist wants is to express with the serenity of the soul the different facets of the universal love and the path to the spiritual evolution. There is an explicit need for us, human beings, to meditate and connect with the cosmic soul to achieve our ultimate potential.” – Joan LluÍs Montané. Reviewer.
