The concept of Paradise has cross-cultural references in the history of man, most of them having pastoral or garden like imagery. In ancient Egyptian culture, this is known as Auru, or ideal hunting and fishing grounds in the after life.
What esteemed painter Lydia Velasco, does in this, her latest one-woman exhibition is to embark on a route to define her own vision of Paradise. She creates new works of astounding beauty, a world of lush foliage, abundant waterfalls and colorful flowers. Her concept is to present her interpretation of paradiso via her garden scapes and merge these with her female figures. Velasco, a Modernist master in her own right, navigates the levels of Paradiso in her own creative and artistic terms.
Her new show, the much awaited and aptly titled "Paradiso", opens at Galerie Joaquin on September 5, Thursday, at 6:00 pm and runs until September 16.
Galerie Joaquin is located at 371 P. Guevarra st., corner Montessori Lane, Addition Hills, San Juan City.
