Mendes Wood DM São Paulo is pleased to present Varda Caivano's first exhibition at the gallery's Sao Paulo space. The exhibition brings together recent paintings and explores the artist's evolving practice of abstraction.
The exhibition brings together recent paintings and explores the artist's evolving practice of abstraction. Caivano investigates moments of light and image, almost like an archeologist exploring fossilized rocks. Her work is at once mysterious and same time persistent and timeless. In the exercise of combining and juxtaposing colors and shapes, Caivano work is a meditation on the nature of her own paintings. One of the possible ways to unlock our understanding of Caivano's work is to consider the image as essence, without the artifices commonly attributed to painting. It is as if we are facing what is behind it.
