Tone and Heat

Tone and Heat.

When heat unleashes the right energy, it melts and becomes colour.
It all happens as a result of a cultural and respectful palmistry with which Grey Est expresses herself connecting sensitiveness and beyond. The painter becomes the link between distant worlds while giving shiny emotions.

The quest for tones opens the idea of an image based upon the condensation of essence, which touches the soul in a direct and coloured way. That is the case of animals which take shape from the use of neat colours of the rainbow, focusing on flexible creativity.

They are lovely animals not dreadful ones; they are seen in a perspective which considers the beauty of every day and evokes memories of human existence. With these series of paintings, Grey Est opens a new perception of colour in which the observer abstracts himself from reality, getting into a new one where fantasy predominates.

The sensorial depth of these paintings shows the result of another site of heaven without boundaries which expresses human feelings with only a lift of the curtain. With a vast manual skill, the soul reveals herself delivering tone and heat.

Grey Estela Est ADAMES better known by her art-name “Grey Est”is a self-taught artist who is driven by curiosity and a huge love for life and art. In her childhood she lived in Dominican Republic in her grandfather’s house for 7 years, where she got in touch with savage nature. Then her family decided to move to Caracas (Venezuela) where she finished her studies and she became passionate about theatre by working with some theatre laboratories; among them there were the school of “Arturo Placencia” and the laboratory of REJATABLA. Then she began to work as model with some local agencies and after that she worked as sale agent for the famous hotel chain Hilton Suite.

The second half of her existence begun when she felt in love with an Italian man with whom she got married: he was the love of her life. She began to acquire a new awareness of herself and her artistic restlessness fell asleep by giving more space to the role of mother and wife. In the meanwhile she studies the artworks of the biggest artists of all time. Life went on and one day she painted on a canvas panel of her son because she needed to escape from the pain she felt inside: she spilled her emotion on it by feeling something she had never felt before. She began to study the colors and the painting techniques and she embarked on a lonely itinerary, giving life to a new human and artistic trip. She realizes her artworks in a visceral and spontaneous way without preparing any sketch and the observer is captured by their beauty and sensuality. The art is used as an instrument to dig deep into the human soul and to spark emotions and questions of existence.
Grey Est believes that the art of painting is a strong vehicle for integration of populations, in a world where racial difference often increases social distance. She promotes cultural activities and she cooperates with them in order to demolish social barricades which fuel racial prejudice between nations.
She boasts of an interesting origin linked to the beautiful Antilles, from Cuba to Puerto Rico and Dominican Republic, with evident Afro-European features.
She took part in different personal and collective exhibitions and she always got a lot of support from both the critics and the observers; in addition she also took part in satellite television programs. Because of her sensitivity she is very proud to assist charity’s effort.
