Barbara Davis Gallery is pleased to announce Coastal, a solo exhibition by Portuguese artists Sara Bichao opening Friday, February 10, 2017 with an artists reception from 6:00-8:30 pm. This exhibition is on view through March 11, 2017.
Coastal, Sara Bichão newest body of work, evolved from the artists understanding of identity and traveling, oscillating from a personal view of life to a symbolic approach of colors, format and meanings. Touching on both an animistic expressions and methodical process, this exhibition integrates a win range of ordinary materials such as concrete, jersey fabric, soap and trunks of wood, these materials resonate in Bichaos concerns: the mapped skin and a traditionl Portuguese soap to indicate flesh, with soft sense of smell conjuring nostalgic punctuating presence by the tensions in between matter, as well as by the chromatic densities that are transversal to all of Sara's work. Although the palette is oft, the ambiance feels rough. the drops of paint empowers the heaviness of existence, in cadence to an invisible ground. The weight of what is alive. Coastal plays the borer of hope and resignation, by a solitary look on the beauty of al surroundings.
