Picture Farm Gallery presents Rowan's Sphere, a solo exhibition of the recent paintings by Chilean-Venezuelan artist Pilita Garcia, curated by Todd Stewart.
Rowan�s Sphere is a paradoxical world inhabited by figures with sharp collars and dignified postures, relating wonder from a previous era. Yet, they are painted in our post-mystery age where discoveries have radiused the world�s enigmatic corners. Their faces wear vanity specific to looking at neverending LED-lit newsfeeds. But Garcia paints light that is ambiguous, as in her self portrait �Selfie� that is at the same time alive and dead, in a state where one�s spirit just escaped its body. - Juan Fontanive
