Paintings by Ángel de Cáceres García

Ángel de Cáceres García was born in Córdoba and is resident in Sanlúcar la Mayor (Seville). Bachelor of Fine Arts from the University of Seville, specialising in Painting, a year after he succeeded in obtaining the post of Professor of Drawing and Plastic arts through public examinations, and performed this position during the next nine years, combined with study of new techniques of painting and sculpture.

In 1997 he started a new experimental period, dedicated to go more deeply into several techniques, specially about oil painting, and into the study of great masters formulas. Is in this period when he discovers possibilities of pastel, a mean which he soon feels himself identified with, and to whose experimentation will dedicate several years, until he found in it a personal way of interpret reality and a way of transmitting his artistic needs.

“To paint Venus or Eve, or Rusalka or Ligeia, or Andromeda or Danae… to look for an image that represents the trace of Camille Claudel or Jeanne Hébuterne… turning me in this way into a traveller among their histories or their times, is like paying a visit to the dreams. In both of them I have found a reflection of a great majority of our passions, so that the concepts of myth and legend blend themselves in each case with the effects of love and with states that range from despair to ecstasy.“ Ángel de Cáceres García

Reincarnation and Plato

Many naturally assume that growing Western world belief in reincarnation is primarily based on a simultaneous increasing influence of Eastern religion and thought. This assumption is due, in part, that (many) Eastern religions have long known spiritual traditions that incorporate the concept of reincarnation. Paying close attention, the current Western World “rebirth” of a belief in reincarnation (pun intended) owes much or most of the credit to the ancient classical Greeks and their fascinating views on the afterlife and reincarnation. In particular, we owe many of our ideas to the musings and discourses of the ancient classical Greek philosopher Plato (428/427 BC – 348/347 BC).

Reincarnation and ancient Greeks
The idea of re-incarnation was not unknown to the ancient Greeks. The eminent philosopher Plato was a major exponent of this belief (as was Pythagoras and the Orphic mystery religion(s)). Plato attributed the idea back to his mentor Socrates, who he recounts saying upon his deathbed: “I am confident in the belief that there truly is such a thing as living again, and that the living spring from the dead, and that the souls of the dead are in existence, and that the good souls have a better portion than the evil”. – Plato, Phaedo
