Rachel Valdes: Tierra

November 28, 2021 – February 5, 2022

Special Miami Design District Location – 35 NE 40th Street We are pleased to announce a solo show by Rachel Valdes, a Cuban artist who lives and works between Madrid and Havana. The artist will present her most recent series of paintings and watercolors, which conceive the landscape as a state of mind in which the elements of nature are materialized.

Sometimes they seem to be overlapping thoughts and abstractions, expressed with the return to the innermost quality of the pigments. Her interest in landscapes comes from her photographic capture, and continues through the pictorial representation, disrupting the experience of the receiver.

Rachel Valdes graduated from the San Alejandro National Academy of Fine Arts, specializing in Painting. She has used different means of artistic manifestation in addition to painting and photography, creating pieces of Land Art, Public Interventions, and large-format installations. In 2016, she won the award granted by the Rockefeller Brothers Fund and the Cuban Art Fund institutions, and exhibited a piece in Times Square, NY. Another significant piece is Cubo Azul, which she exhibited at the XII Havana Biennial in 2015.

About Pan American Art Projects

Pan American Art Projects was established in 2001 with the mission to exhibit and promote established and emerging artists from North, Central and South America, providing a context for dialogue between the various regions. We represent a strong roster of contemporary artists of the Americas and hold a collection of important works from Cuba, Argentina, the U.S. and the Caribbean. Our programming reflects these complementary arenas providing a comprehensive historical context for contemporary tendencies in the visual arts from these regions.

The gallery was born from the personal collection of our owner, Robert Borlenghi, who as a founding member of MOCA Los Angeles made his first trip to Haiti in 1990 and found many great artists that were relatively unknown to collectors in the U.S. He made it his mission to collect and exhibit underrepresented artists from Haiti, Jamaica and later Cuba. This mission then transferred to our gallery when we opened in Dallas in 2001, when we began adding actively represented artists from North and South America.
