We are thrilled to announce the start of the season with the solo exhibition “hoo hoo hoo” by Dasha Shishkin.

 

In the last decades Shishkin has generated a unique and rich plastic language from a revision of the figurative pictorial tradition. Dasha Shishkin’s interest lies in the important role of the human figure in the history of painting and its relationship with the spatial surroundings in which the artist features her work. The prominence of line over color and the use of symbolic references to represent eroticism are characteristic of the artist’s work, as well as a critical review of femininity and the feminine body in her paintings and drawings.

 

We look forward to seeing you next Thursday! We count with the collaboration of Estrella Damm. They will be serving cold beers to welcome the season!
