Manuela Armand is a young Venezuelan artist born in Mérida, Venezuela, in 1982, who develops an investigation on the perception of the landscape through painting. Coming from a family environment very close to art, she graduated in Visual Arts from the Faculty of Art of the Universidad de Los Andes in 2007, and she did internships in the painting workshops of the Instituto Universitario de Artes Plásticas Armando Reverón (Iuesapar), in Caracas. She is currently a professor in the Department of Visual Arts of the Faculty of Art of the Universidad de Los Andes.
The proposal of Armand aims, in her own words, to “capture the ephemeral, the instant, the transitory and fleeting of a landscape, and at the same time the memory of it”. She stops on the constant changes of the environment, in natural phenomena that are not apprehensible due to their ethereal quality. With subtle acuity she amplifies what is insignificant in the immeasurable dimensions of the natural space. Armand pauses in the tiny areas of the wide horizon.
