Pilar Jimenez continues the tradition of the Colombian’s most important artist by being an intellectual. Her work consists of parallel planes that offer refuge and delight with textures and colors that ruffle the canvas. Layer by layer worlds full of mystery that recreate everyday scenes full of candor and kindness are revealed in her works. Pilar’s art emanates from a world of peace and hope where the viewer must listen to the silence to interact fully with her art.
