Silvia Paz: Remembrances 

When: Sept. 1-30 2016



The Peruvian artist Silvia Paz incorporates imagery from the depths of her subconscious into her striking, luminous oil paintings. Though her work is marked by realistic rendering, something in the light, perspective, and especially the iconography transmits the visceral sense that we are in a dreamworld. Drawing inspiration from both classical and modern art movements, Paz juxtaposes the ordinary and the fantastical in a way that calls to mind Surrealists such as Magritte, while her spooky landscapes have a de Chirico flavor. Even so, Paz's work, which she has honed over years of extensive private study, reflects a distinct, and distinctly Peruvian, worldview. Dream big this Friday at the opening reception of her Gallery C show, which is on view through September. —David Klein
