Rafael Valdivieso-Troya

Biography

"Our languages tie us to our world, our experiences and our beliefs. Worlds are opened and limited by language. Different tongues render untranslatable variations that describe the subtleties of the human essence. Amid the efforts to cultivate my creative freedom and to promote reflection, my work becomes the outcome of my desires and experiences. My tonguesSpanish, Quechua, Englishbuild dialogues that seem the same but in reality reveal different paradigms. They show me that life can be experienced from different vantage points. In the face of these scenarios I observe and I take flight. My mission is to create channels of communication between the inside and the outside of these worlds. In my visual labyrinth I find my understanding, I grow. Today I present three pieces in large format, three pieces that disclose with visual codes the collective experience of my history."
