Ivelisse Jimenez (Puerto Rico) is offering members and the general public, some of her time to boost our creativity!


With social and political interests at the heart of her practice, artist Ivelisse Jimenez has invented a creative writing where forms and colors are intertwined with the reality of her native island (Puerto Rico). How to create in a country ruled by contradictions? Ivelisse Jimenez takes the viewer into the gaze of what seems at first a beautiful assemblage in situ, to a deeper level of understanding art.

L'Artocarpe is very privileged to have the presence of such an interesting artist, whose questioning of the role of the artist has taken her to the necessity of exploring abstraction and rethinking the notion of beauty.

Highly generous, Ivelisse has shared her knowledge with art school students as well as members eager to know more about contemporary art in Puerto Rico and New York, where the artist has lived for twenty years.
L'Artocarpe is hoping that once again, this new link with an invited artist, will be the beginning of long terms exchanges between Puerto Rican and Guadeloupean artists...
