Kontempo Art, a contemporary art gallery located in fabulously eclectic Calle Ocho, is proud to present Ileana Collazoâ€™s Floral Fantasies.
In her words: â€œMy work includes not only flowers, but bursts of abstract shapes and colors; lines that form seductive structures. To encapsulate itâ€™s essence; I create small worlds of movement, colors, and shapes that entice the observer to travel through my work surfaceâ€”colliding with the images, finding their way around to yet another shape, and finding it as alluring to linger gazing at them as I find it to linger in a garden; also, my work is representative of the twists, turns, bumps, and alternatives that each of us transverses in the course of our daily lives.â€
Ileana was born in Ciego de Avila, Cuba. She lived in Spain, Florida, New York, Vermont, and Massachusetts; before returning to Miami, where she began her artistic career.Thank you for using Soul Of Miami!
