Peru: Two important art exhibitions in Lima

Isabel Guerra

Two important art exhibitions by Peruvian artists can still be visited in Lima these days: “La Memoria Suspendida” (“Memory On Hold”) by Natalia Velit, and “Esculturas” (“Sculptures”), by Armando Varela.

Velit, who lives and works in France since 1981, combines light, color, and the memories of important artworks in their paintings, as well as quotidian objects, to form new a source of life.

Varela’s metal sculptures vary from the small, intimate piece, till the big-sized work, always with a visible sense of rythm and a compositional axis.

“Memory on Hold” is being held at Centro Cultural Inca Garcilaso de la Cancillería (Jr. Ucayali 391, Lima) until May 17th,

“Sculptures” will be exhibited at Galería John Harriman del CC Británico (Jr. Bellavista 531, Miraflores) until May 31st.
