Yolanda Fae’s new exhibition Luminance and Macro-Textures to benefit the International Highlands Music Festival
The exhibition opens on November 6 at the Swiss Club, and 20% of the proceeds will be kindly donated towards the completion of the first International Highlands Music Festival. The festival is an unprecedented non-profit initiative brings together musicians from the Andes the Alps and the Himalayas, November 28-30 in Lima’s Exposition Park.
Yolanda Fae, whose previous works have show-cased large-format organic abstract paintings, and colorfully refashioned furniture, with contrasting, interwoven and seemingly limitless textures, now presents something altogether different. This time, macro photographs show artworks invaded by flowers which, through the artists unique visual lens and particular sensibilities, result in unexpected and unusual connections.
“The key to understanding these images in depth is to be fully available in the present moment, to abandon oneself to a prolonged period of contemplation, which can gradually become a deeper meditation,” says Yolanda Fae.
The artist facilitates, as renowned Peruvian curator Jorge Villacorta has stated, “a use of the image as a spring board, which feeds the observer optically and aesthetically in time.” “Aesthetic” is the term which best defines the photographic exhibition Luminance and Macro-Textures. The show is bold, defying current tendencies in photography, and swimming against the mainstream. In this beautiful show we can find intense and brilliant colors, and minute details that make us take flight.
