ART EVENT: CLUSTER ILLUSTRATION presents
SOLO EXHIBITION by PAULA RODRIGUEZ
EXHIBITION DATES: 6th – 10th October 2021
LOCATION: Oxo Tower Wharf, Bargehouse, SE1 9PH, London
Part of Cluster’s new residency programme exhibition series, Paula Rivas Rodriguez’s Spaces Within presents a series of gouache paintings that capture the inexplicable qualities of rural Mexican townships. Exaggerating their architectural features through scale, repetition and abstraction, Rivas Rodriquez emphasises the dysmorphic unease an empty street can trigger. Evoking the surrealist heritage of Giorgio de Chirico, the doorways, arches, and squares of her paintings are as much about the negative-spaces they create as they are about the space formed by brick and mortar. Between these walls silent voids are created, casting great distances between us, the viewer, and the solitary figures placed towards the horizons, resolution always out of reach.
