Timeless Beauty: Manolo Valdés & Simon Procter

October 29, 2015

Rosenbaum Contemporary has brought together two contemporary masters: artist/sculptor Manolo Valdés and fine art photographer Simon Procter for the exhibition Timeless Beauty on view now through January 2 in its Boca Raton, Fla. gallery (150 Yamato Road). Gallery hours are Tuesday through Saturday, 10

a.m. to 5 p.m.


Timeless Beauty combines the sculptures and mixed media works of Spanish artist Manolo Valdés with the lush fine art photography of Simon Procter.


Valdés, inspired by such artists as Velázquez, Matisse, Picasso and Lichtenstein, uses a range of mediums including paper, burlap, aluminum, bronze and iron to create female busts and portraits, many absent of facial features, that convey an aura of timelessness. His work has been exhibited in galleries and museums around the world including the Guggenhaim Bilbao in Spain. He is also the recipient of numerous awards and honors including the National Medal for Painting, Fine Arts, Spain.


Procter studied fine art for many years, originally focusing on both painting and   sculpture and has developed a unique style that synthesizes fashion photography with  the aesthetics of classical painting. His work has been featured in V Magazine, Vogue Nippon, Harper’s Bazaar and The New York Times and is held in gallery and museum collections  worldwide.


Rosenbaum Contemporary, founded in 1979, is based in Boca Raton with a second gallery inside the St. Regis Bal Harbour Hotel in Miami. The gallery caters to international collectors interested in investment-quality works by Postwar, Modern and Contemporary masters and presents nationally recognized museum-level exhibitions throughout the year. The gallery also offers a wide range of free services to collectors worldwide including acquisition advice, art consulting, sourcing of artists, art collection building and management and resale of select works of art.
