Kontempo Art, a contemporary art gallery located in Little Havana, presents a solo exhibition by artist Ileana Collazo entitled Floral Fantasies.
“My work includes not only flowers, but bursts of abstract shapes and colors; lines that form seductive structures. To encapsulate it’s essence; I create small worlds of movement, colors, and shapes that entice the observer to travel through my work surface – 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.” – Ileana Collazo.
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.
