In Your Absence You Exist

about casita
Throughout her practice, Amezkua transforms the ways in which society and cultural histories interact. She utilizes traditional and domestic Mexican techniques and customs in her work to address community-based social issues such as equity, race, gender and identity. For her solo show at Casita Maria Gallery, Amezkua has “woven” a large-scale, site-specific work throughout the space of geometric shapes incorporating painted silhouettes of bodies, string, yarn, pipe cleaners and every-day found materials as a testament to the physicality of loss as well as a visual definition of the physical and psychological void that is left behind when a loved one is absent or disappears from a person’s life.
Casita Maria is proud to present In Your Absence You Exist by Bronx artist Blanka Amezkua opening March 1 through May 17, 2017 and curated by Christine Licata.
