The audacious way in which the artist Carmen Borrasé appeals to metaphors and plastic resources to translate her ideas into paintings of extraordinary realism, will be appreciated by the public in the exhibition “Metaphor, symbol and allegory”, which opened at the Museum of Costa Rican art, located in La Sabana.

“Metaphor, symbol and allegory” will allow the visitor to take a tour of a part of the artist’s works, made in different periods, and also have the challenge of giving each of the works populated with symbolic objects their own reading .
