MARCH 1st – 31st, 2013
Opening reception 7, 2013 from 6 – 9 pm
Lady G is the epitome of the traditional reclined nude from art history – a classic representation of submission and objectified femininity. Only she’s a Lhasa bitch and her sumptuous portrait lies on plush red velvet. World renown for her portraiture, Barraza’s new work does not disappoint.
In a groundbreaking show entitled ‘MATING SEASON’ Barraza moves away from the explicit representation of violence and invisibility of her prior works, to the visibility of genetic action and its multiplicity of outcomes. Black and white kittens frolic and play on black and white velvets in ‘Schrödinger´s Visit’. Animal and artist eyes peek out from what becomes a forest of literal multiplying mirrored images. And the ‘bitch’ rules the roost with the lhasa reclined – embodying the dignity and humor Barraza brings to this intersection of nature and culture.
