At Ateliers89 in Oranjestad

Ateliers 89 features a new expo showcasing common objects in a fresh context with recycled, discarded materials that are invested with new meaning and interpretation. Worth a visit any afternoon in town. Local artists under the guidance on Venezuelan artist Raily Yance.

Yance also created a thought provoking piece from an old foam mattress that he picked and nicked. You can identify the form of Aruba on top and a piece of Venezuela on the bottom. What separates the two is a vast ocean of water ridges and valleys. The piece is almost physically uneasy/disturbing, but powerful, true to life, the countries are close in distance, far apart emotionally. @ateliers89 #RailyYance.
