We gather a significant group of artists that have contributed to generate a finely critical and playful profile in the Peruvian contemporary art whether in a neo-conceptual line or characterized by constructive concepts.
The artists in this collective are creators of works that can be object of approximation from various angles and reading frames, without saying that there is a categorical definition for their work. Flow is what characterizes their creation processes, also animated by a subtle humour. These artists use a variety of means in their creative processes and of great visual intelligence and precise sensibility, although markedly dissimilar between them.
Alberto Casari seeks to give new turns to painting and sculpture in unthinkable ways, pointing to the death of painting or painting within its own limits. He himself defines his late work as a spiritual search, works with messages that looks out beyond consumption, as a means of relaxation, thought or estrangement. He and his alter egos force the spectator to investigate and discover his inner art, to feel rather than just to see.
Alice Wagner creates a new plastic language from the use of floaters and inflatable toys. In her work reveals what we could call the dark side of market fantasy, fair or children’s party, a world that deflates, melts and looses its roundness and brilliant colors to leave us with an image close to the perturbing enigma of lost fantasies.
Alberto Borea deconstructs America using magazines and recycled materials to create new compositions, new territories. His work is concerned with non-places, mapping and identity. His work is characterized by the continuous displacement and use of diverse media and materials Adriana´s blur and construction of the image technique notes the vibration of color, the results are images full of nostalgia. The pictoric approximation suggests a current of empathy flowing. The paintings tendency to be a light watery green immediately suggests a fluid softness that eludes the grave accents of any invocation of a memory as sacred. In this pictoric mode there appears a freshness, which, by the trace of the drawing on the canvas and the natural irregularities of the handmade paper, contributes to the image always.
