Mercedes Viegas Contemporary Art Gallery opens an exhibition by São Paulo-based artist Elisa Bracher, known for wooden and stone monumental sculptures, as well as the drawings, prints that have organic or geometric features. Curator Elisa Byington selected around twenty designs that will occupy the entire ground floor of the gallery. The artist presents her latest production designs, where the color is the most important guide of the eye.
Bracher uses graphite rod and oily ink for gravure, on a very light rice or translucent tissue paper; lightness contrasts with the intensity of the stroke and broad gestures that red impregnates in a visceral, erotic, emotional manner.
Until May 29 the artist in Rio de Janeiro will also present a major exhibition at the Imperial Palace, “Flower Anatomy,” also curated the art historian Elisa Byington. The two exhibitions complement each other.
