Exhibition Opening - Nancy Friedemann-Sánchez: Casta Paintings

The powerful large-scale paintings and drawings of Nancy Friedemann-Sánchez allude to minimalism and the pattern and decoration movement while using the aesthetics of Spanish Moorish tiles found on buildings in her native Colombia. The artist also often incorporates lace patterns from colonial portraits, as well as colonial botanical drawings, to explore notions of identity, memory, hybridity, and appropriation.
