Landscape views in art may be entirely imaginary or copied from reality with varying degrees of accuracy. Similarly, our own ideas of tropical landscapes are an idealization of what we remember and what we expect. Eventually, every corner of urban Latin America will be filled with buildings, parking lots, and whatever else alleviates the human fear of empty space. In visual art, this fear is known as Horror Vacui and is the point of departure for Alejandro Almanza Pereda’s practice: landscape paintings found at flea markets and splattered with cement.
