Surrealism is an unconscious expressive technique that inspired a cultural movement that originated in the 1920’s. Combining vision, expression, dreams and reality and exaggerated details that make imagery bold, bright and vividly unique. Playing on seduction, femininity and beauty these pieces pull you into a false reality of heightened ethereal consciousness.
Joan Alfaro was born in Peru and is one of the most important modern painters of the Peruvian culture. The dream world of Joan Alfaro, an Andean surrealism captured between wavy lines with powerful colors that reflect the feeling and reality of our culture. Characters that are developing between realities and dreams to transform memories and bring life to life.
Alfaro builds her paintings as a craftsman of color and form, undoubtedly the dreamlike spirit where the outstanding element of organic type surrounds or binds with the element that decorates musicians, elderly, children, mothers, various female images in fantastic attitudes, gracile with a bountiful application of waves and stylized forms where color suggests an impression that Joan also absorbs their city and its people.
