In this gallery, many talented artists have come to exhibit their art. Currently, you will find the Intervalos, confines, y territorios exhibit by the Puerto Rican artist Ivelisse Jiménez.
Intervalos, confines, y territorios is a sample of art that presents 21 works created in mixed media of plastic, paper, wood and canvas in acrylic and enamel. The work uses as an axis the transparency of the materials, their fragilities and strengths to point out interpretations of our relationship with the space that inhabits us and the one we inhabit. Jiménez distinguishes herself by abstractly interpreting the relationship with the concrete space and her encounter with the human.

She has a master’s degree from the University of New York and a bachelor’s degree in Humanities from the University of Puerto Rico.

She was recently selected by MASS MoCA (Museum of Contemporary Art of Massachusetts) to perform an artistic residency.
“These art pieces have no actual significance,” said Norma Vila Rivero, the coordinator of the USC art gallery. “…she (Ivelisse Jiménez) claimed that her art means whatever the viewer wants it to mean.”
“Abstract of the natural space and research from our encounter with light, shape and color, contradictory feelings that correspond to us all in the process of assigning meaning to an experience, I intend with this sample to create a search and reconciliation space that invites to the reflection of the current space, the movement and the relationship between fragments The pause, interval, is the protagonist, because in it are present the effect of what has just been observed, the possibility of what has not happened and what can not be content “, highlights Jiménez about her recent production.
