Pintor venezolano expone en Tennessee


KNOXVILLE — “Revolución Falsa” intenta expresar lo que para Carlos Solis es la Revolución Bolivariana de Chávez.

“Nunca viví en la Venezuela de Chávez”, dice Solis quien explica que observando los acontecimientos de su país desde Atlanta, Georgia donde reside con su esposa e hija su mente creadora pedía respuestas a preguntas como ¿qué pensará el Libertador Simón Bolivar de la revolución de Chávez?

Carlos A. Solis expuso “Revolución Falsa”, “Punto de Origen”, “La Construcción del Templo” y otras obras de arte surrealistas en la Galería 133 del centro de Knoxville.

“En el mundo infinito de mi imaginación, he tratado de transmitir y estimular los elementos míticos y espirituales de la expresión visual”, señala Solis y aconseja a los jóvenes pintores a “no ponernos barreras y siguir pintando! Sigan trabajando! Ayúdense unos a otros entre artístas. Sigan su sueños.”

Las obras de Carlos A. Solis pueden adquirirse en línea visitando la Galería Xanandu

Se notan los maniquís y el excremento del caballo sobre el rojo de la revolución chavista. Mientras que el pensamiento bolivariano se mantiene a gran altura, lejos!

Protegido por la Constitucion Americana


WASHINGTON –La Decimocuarta Enmienda a la Constitución – conocida por algunos como la piedra angular de los derechos civiles – afirma que, con muy pocas excepciones, todas las personas nacidas en los EE.UU. son ciudadanos de este país, independientemente de la ciudadanía de sus padres.

Después de la Guerra Civil(1861-1865) y la Proclamación de Emancipación de los esclavos(1863), la Decimocuarta Enmienda reiteró el principio de la ciudadanía constitucional que había sido temporalmente suprimido por el Tribunal Supremo: la decisión “Dred Scott” negaba la ciudadanía a los hijos de los esclavos nacidos en Estados Unidos.

Desde entonces, el Tribunal Supremo ha declarado reiteradamente el derecho constitucional a la ciudadanía. Sin embargo, a través del tiempo, varios proyectos de ley se han introducido para negar la ciudadanía americana a los niños cuyos padres están en los EE.UU. con visas temporales o sin autorización de permanencia en el país.

A medida que los grupos restriccionistas y algunos legisladores entre quienes se cuentan los representantes de Tennessee, continuan en sus intentos de restringir o revocar la ciudadanía constitucional, el Centro de Política sobre Inmigración señala que en estas circunstancias, “es importante recordar que eliminando la ciudadanía constitucional sería poco práctico, caro, no detendría la inmigración ilegal y sobre todo, sería inconstitucional.”
