Luis Mallo: Interruptions, at Praxis International – New York

Opening reception: Thursday, Jan. 8, 2015   6-8 pm

Jan. 8 – Feb. 21, 2015

Praxis New York
541 West 25th Street,
New York, NY

Luis Mallo presents in this exhibition a group of visually arresting images meant to stimulate us to question notions of familiarity. With this series Mallo wants us to understand that the manner in which we perceive our surroundings is contingent by nature. Most of what we see and experience is illusory and therefore, deceptive. His scenes reveal this illusory nature by offering partially concealed and most often perplexing representations of the surrounding landscape and its various props.

For Mallo, Interruptions is not an outcome, but a vital process, a way of looking that may offer a fresh perspective. As previously done with other series, he invites us to look deeper and unearth that which lies latently waiting to be discovered under the veil of familiarity.

Summer Hours Mon-Fri 10-6PM

This year’s summer show is filled with a variety of works of all different mediums.  Intricate patterns, diverse textures and the use of color,transparency and glossy finishes make the work of these artists exquisite and amusing.

Intertwined fabrics are suspended in an apparent empty space, oil drippings and collaged paper, flowers, buttons and clay, characterize the physical structure of the work of David Antonio Cruz and Nina Surel. The Miami-based duo Guerra de la Paz also resorts to the use of fabrics.
Recycled clothing is the medium of choice to explore the manipulation of textiles that breathe new life to these rescued remains. The properties of fibers, yarn and dies in textile design, are translated to wood, resin, pencil, and stickers by Nancy Saleme. Similarly, Firelei Baez evokes popular traditions of the Caribbean in a delicate use of gouache, watercolor, and thin lines of ink on paper in beautifully painted patterns.
