Sol Calero @ Laura Bartlett Gallery

23 September 2016 - 3 November 2016

Solo Pintura will feature ten new works by the Venezuelan artist, which continue to investigate issues of nationality and identity construction – themes at the core of her practice.
Embracing the style and pictorial vocabulary of a culture misrepresented, these paintings are bounty rich in tropicália – bursting with fruits, plants and ‘exotica’ – restrained only by the hand-painted frames that contain them. Vibrant colours spool from canvas to wall, as Calero connects the areas of the gallery by painting the walls in pastel shades of green, yellow, pink and peach. The effect reminds us of her previous installations, which embrace a kind of ‘Gesamtkunstwerk’ (total work of art) sensibility.
