Galería Guadalupe presents an abbreviated retrospective of the works and life of artist Victoria Suescum. Mi Museo está en la calle is a solo show that highlights the artist’s time lived in both Panama and the United States through motifs lifted from the streets.
Suescum’s work explores the painting style of signage found on the walls of neighborhood shops ( tiendas ) such as beauty parlors, hardware stores, butcher shops and auto repair shops. Suescum adopts their odd color combinations, strange perspective and wild shifts in scale. These images are morphed into new and personal combinations.
