Valeria Vilar’s paintings are memories of tales, dreams, recondite places of imagination and fantasy. The figurative becomes more visible at certain moments and disappears to leave a space for the reconstruction of each spectator freeing his or her imagination. The characters are dissolved, and give rise to strokes of abstraction where you feel the need to recompose the story. Figurative in some parts, images are presented as a puzzle that distracts us with colors and gestures in the composition.
Valeria Vilar received her Bachelor’s Degree in Architecture from the University of Buenos Aires in 2009. In 2011, Vilar was selected to be part of the Artist Program of the University of Torcuato Di Tella, which was led by the artist Jorge Macchi. Vilar has attended multiple visual arts workshops, and in 2013, Vilar worked with the artists Elisa Estrada and Florencia Lenzi to co-found CasaPlaza – a visual arts school for children.
