 'OF WATER AND EARTH' ART EXHIBIT BY MIGUEL NIN
 AT THE VANIDADES GALLERY FEB. 21-MARCH 20
 MIAMI, Feb. 5 /PRNewswire/ -- The Vanidades Gallery (6355 N.W. 36 St., Virginia Gardens, Fla. 33166) will present an exhibit of the Latin American painter, Miguel Nin, as of Friday, Feb. 21, at 7 p.m.
 The exhibit consists of a sample of 30 paintings that reflect "the theme of life, water and earth...the fluidity of water, the ephemeral...and the concrete and definitive of earth."
 The paintings -- in an abstract surrealism, expressionist, depict nudes in contact with their surroundings; the virgin nature in humans, and in the ethereal. The unknown dimensions of the world that surge spontaneously from the psyche. Miguel Nin searches poetry in oil "but not symbols...I always start from the spiritual...the problems of being human, the existential...life itself which transcends the concrete and becomes the spiritual.
 His nudes, either alone, or interlaced with others -- present a transparent quality, almost ethereal. In this world there are ambiguous forms, that suggest. On this note, he leaves the spectator some margin to find his own imagination, his own psychology of the subconscious. His nudes are almost metaphysical, with a surreal eroticism, that appear emerging from the fog, or a light. Bodies that seem like abstract flowers, bathed in light. "I mix the human figure with nature, the earth"...explains Nin.
 Light appears in all his paintings...always life, with its brightness. Nin works exclusively with oils on canvas, in order to project its energy with colors. Blues, orange, yellows and whites, all communicate that ethereal quality, as if from "other worlds" in movement and evolution. "Oils allow me to provide the transparency that I look for...the spirituality," he explains.
 Miguel Nin has lived in Miami since 1987. His works -- in private collections in the U.S.A., and in various countries of Europe and Latin America, has received several awards in Habana. Graduated from the San Alejandro Academy of Fine Arts (in Cuba), he explains that "he feels the influence of the great masters of Cuban Art...Victor Manuel, Ponce and Cabrera Moreno, the Chilean Roberto Matta, and the Peruvian Gerardo Chavez."
 In Paris, Nin received Matta's training, "who taught me to paint with the heart...to reflect everything in the universe, and, above all, to give myself to my work in spirit."
 In Miami, Miguel Nin has exhibited in the Caroline Gallery and in the Biltmore Hotel (in Coral Gables.)
 The exhibit will remain open to the public until March 20, from Monday through Friday, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. For additional information, call 305-871-6400.
