Agnès Monplaisir Gallery is glad to propose the artist a solo show on the occasion of the opening of the Autumn season 2014. At the same time that her presentation in Brazil at the fair Art Rio '14, a selection of her most recent works will be on show in Paris.
Olga de Amaral’s work refers to the South American culture, its mineral wealth, its history, its traditions, legends and fantasies that arised from it.
Some pieces have been acquired by the collections of some of the world most important museums (Met, MoMA, Museum of Modern Art of Kyoto, Chicago Art Institute, Museum of Modern Art of Paris...). Her art, made out of mixed media, has been thought to assimilate the sublimated ancestral tradition of weaving. It is designed, elaborated, soaked in gold, silver and pigments and show us the gleam from the splendid buried resources of the South American land.
Even though abstract, Olga de Amaral’s art also infuse the viewer’s imagination with the perception of the immense landscapes and the exuberant nature of this sublime, fantastical and mysterious continent.
