José Maria Capricorne
José Maria Capricorne (1932) was born in Curaçao but at present lives in the Netherlands. His next exhibition in the Netherlands will be in Apeldoorn at the art gallery En Passant, from November 10 till December 10, 2013.
He is represented in Curaçao by Gallery Alma Blou in Landhuis Habaai. His last exhibition here took place in April 2013.
Producer Tanja Fraai is delighted with the showing of ‘The Wonderboom’ at the international Cuban film festival. She calls it “A special chance for Capricorne to share his work and vision with the people in Cuba. At the same time it will also attract the attention to Curaçao as a Caribbean community undergoing an interesting emancipation process”.
