Open Monday thru Friday, 12 to 7 pm
Gral. Borgoño 770, Miraflores
Galería del Paseo Lima is pleased to present Sylvia Fernandez’s solo show Volvamos curated by Nicólas Gómez Echeverri.
The curatorship reflects on the bets that Sylvia makes in her pictorial practice, one of them being time as an unavoidable factor in her work, and with it, an approach to remembrances, memory, the imaginary, and the common.
Fernández’s painting feeds on her desires and dreams, she uses the shape of the body and its fragments to dialogue with nature, air, water, earth, reaching the erotic, the emotional, and the human.
“Sylvia Fernández’s work reveals her particular willingness to surrender to everything that the practice of painting provides her as an action articulated with her daily life, which explores her intimacy and in its core, she finds the strange and the inexplicable of humanity that is common to us… “
–Nicolás Gómez Echeverri
