Ana Prata @ Pippy Houldsworth Gallery
9 September 2016 - 15 October 2016
A solo exhibition of new paintings by the young Brazilian artist Ana Prata, her first in the UK. In Gone Astray Prata captures the essence of an object or scene by breaking it down into its constituent parts, using a distinct vernacular of simple brushstrokes to form a distilled version of the former image. These simple arrangements of abstract marks subsequently trigger greater, mental associations; palm trees are composed of hurried brush marks, whilst a raised stamp of vermilion paint is used to evoke a blazing sun. For the exhibition, Prata has painted a series of tropical landscapes configured in various iterations.
