MARCELA FLORIDO

PRIMAVERA

With Primavera Marcela Florido exposes, for her first solo show at the gallery, a new series of artworks which continue the artist’s reflctions on gender, race and identity, through a pictorial representation of femeinine figures in vivid colors. Having lived in different cities as Rio de Janeiro, London, New Heaven, Lamu and New York, the artist has maturated a multi-layered concept of identity. Each culture and each country, in fact, have different prejudices and labels to address its people.

The artistic research of Florido (as a latina woman), aims to point out and analize those labels, and try to deconstruct them, in order to define a new way of perceving one’s own identity. The pictorical representation of a fictional female character typical in her paintings, set in flourishing and colorful landscapes creates a sense of joy and happiness associated with Brazilian culture. This is exactly the kind of stereotype which Florido aims to criticizes through the repetition of these elements. The consant re-definition of the concept of home through her life, in fact, did not cancel her homeland memories which still represerent a crucial aspect for her practice.
