Gabriela Monterroso, Marlo Saucedo, Marisol Valencia, curated by Rosa Ana Orlando: DISCOVERING MEANING

November 18 - December 18, 2020


Discovering Meaning

This exhibition explores the connections within the work of Gabriela Monterroso, Marlo Saucedo, and Marisol Valencia as they delve into their creative processes to identify the essence and message of their pieces.  In their own way, and through the use of different media and materials, these three artists invite viewers to slow down, look closer, and make discoveries as they approach their artwork.  Through her powerful paintings, Monterroso focuses on the concepts of acceptance and possibility; Saucedo turns to words and investigates their power as visual subjects; and Valencia reexamines the interaction between different materials through pieces that question our traditional assumptions.

Each artist’s individual search is noticeable throughout the exhibition, where the pieces create a metaphorical conversation on themes that are relevant to their visual language.  Childhood memories, origin, roots, and personal stories turn from concepts to tangible objects that deal with overcoming adversity, second chances, and finding common ground between the internal mind and the external matter.
