Berna Parra, María Eugenia Sánchez, and Margarita Villarroel conduct an open-ended interview with Régulo Pérez (b. 1929), which allows the artist to express himself with simplicity. The opportunity to know his thoughts on salons is important because it stimulates participation in these events by arguing that through them one may observe the development of artwork as it evolves in significance. The Venezuelan artist also comments on his new projects; among these, his plans to paint “landscapes of the Orinoco Delta, Puerto Ayacucho, Los Pijiguaos,” in which he plans to include “portraits of strange characters.” The interview likewise offers a description in the artist’s own voice of how he composes his paintings, which he defines as “illustrations.”
