From 6 October 2019 to 5 January 2020, Museum Valkenburg will display works by Nikki Pelaez (1969) in the upper room of the museum. Nikki studied Spatial Design at the Academy of Visual Arts in Maastricht. She grew up in Spain, but has been living and working in Maastricht for a number of years now.
By mastering different drawing and painting techniques in combination with real visual material, Nikki Pelaez creates an enigmatic world in which the theme of innocence (and the loss thereof) is central. Her work is full of contradictions, both in terms of content and in terms of form and technology. Themes such as; familiarity and alienation, innocence and corruption, connectedness and loneliness play a role.
