Anna Zorina Gallery is pleased to announce Espíritu, Alonsa Guevara’s second solo exhibition with the Gallery. The show features the artist’s vibrant figurative paintings in conjunction with an interactive installation and her distinct mixed-media sculptures. Together, these three series elevate the overarching ceremonial aspect of her work to a new level that now invites and incorporates the viewer as an active participant in the celebration of every nuance of life. In Espíritu, or “Spirit,” Guevara investigates the unknown force that underlies our existence and connects us all. The mystery of both life and death is celebrated with invented ceremonies. The artist paints life-sized figures of women lying on different grounds including grass, sand, earth, and water while surrounded by flora and fauna to portray regions particular to the subject, highlighting the woman’s connection to her own environment. This particular vulnerability intends to spark metaphysical questions from an intimately personal perspective.
