Carmichael Gallery of Contemporary Art is proud to present Seiva Bruta, the first West Coast solo exhibition of work by Brazilian artist Flip. Artwork featured in the exhibition will include acrylic, ink and mixed media on wood, canvas, and paper as well as a site specific installation. An opening reception will be held on Thursday, March 5th, 2009 from 7.00pm - 10.00pm with Flip in attendance. The exhibition will be open for viewing through Thursday, March 26th, 2009 from 1.00pm - 7.00pm.
In Seiva Bruta, Flip continues his exploration of the natural world and the relationships that exist within it. In this new body of work, he interprets plant sap as the blood of plants, comparing and contrasting it with the blood of animals.
"I make a parallel between the fluid and the blood," comments Flip. "Nerves, veins, and roots…feelings, diseases, patterns all mixed up."
With an environmentally-flavored color palette and textural variations created by a unique approach to Asian calligraphy, Flip offers a fresh, intuitive voice to the international contemporary art scene.
