DOBLE FILO Introduces Extraordinary Worlds
La Galería at Villa Victoria Center for the Arts is eager to open its latest exhibit
DOBLE FILO, where the work exposes a series of striking alternate visuals and materials.
Participating Artists: Elsa María Meléndez, Frances Rivera González, Isabel Ramírez, Ivanna Bergese, Jungil Hong, Karla Cott, Norma Vila, Xander Marro, and Zinthia Vázquez. Local Providence artist, Jungil Hong, will provoke viewers with her surreal and textural work. Xander Marro, also from the Providence art scene, noted that, for her, the causes of the economic crisis have "sparked an interest in representing new ways of thinking about the epic battles that we face within ourselves and the cruddier side of our human nature." Karla Cott also spoke of systemic confusion. In her new work, which features animation and embroidery, "the concept of avidya"-a Hindu way of expressing "false knowledge"-"is metaphorically presented through images that explore its different aspects and manifestations," she explained.
DOBLE FILO means, appropriately enough, Double-Edged, and the show promises to bring audiences precisely near that fringe of textures and ideas that alter and collide.
