The tropic passes through Neliam’s canvases.
Neliam Rivas is a Venezuelan painter, born in a town by the Caribbean.She comes from a family of painters, and raised in a world full of light and vibrant colours, and it can be seen on her paintings.
Since 2002, Neliam is on a search for shapes and colours. Her road has taken her through prestigious galleries in Venezuela and the Caribbean, using still life as her theme, and realism as her style.
Her goal is to show us things we haven’t really seen, subtle details in our every day experience that don’t really pay attention to. She does it with what she knows really well, light. Strong light falls over the fruits, revealing textures, colours, volumes and reactions.
