CLAUDIA ETCHEVERRITO

Contemporary Perspectives
December 1 – December 22, 2015
Reception: Thursday, December 3, 2015 6-8 PM

In Claudia Etcheverrito's latest series, visions of cities appear through a stormy cloud. Etcheverrito paints buildings, bridges, subways, and parks from all over the world, spanning Europe, South America, the United States, and beyond: her paintings are heavily inspired by her experiences traveling. Her palette and content are edited to a trim, eloquent amount of information. Her lines are precise, her locations exact. Her work is more than a simple travelogue: it contains thought, emotion, and the suggestion of a story.

Etcheverrito's singular process is to create a representational image with acrylic, then finish each painting with a haunting sheen of trickling water. She describes this technique as "simply a need that comes up to wash away the bad feelings that tormented me while doing the artwork." Her music helps her undergo the emotional transition. Interestingly, the effect both obscures the image and brings it to a heightened level of evocativeness. The haze of water can mean many things: an imperfect memory, a dream, or perhaps the unreliability of sight itself.

Etcheverrito was born in Rocha, Uruguay, and currently lives in São Paulo, Brazil. She also practices photography professionally.
