October 8 – December 19, 2020
Sicardi | Ayers | Bacino is pleased to present our new exhibition Nature, on view through December 19, 2020.
This exhibition highlights artists Alberto Baraya, Claudio Bravo, Aldo Bonadei, Maria Fernanda Cardoso, Magdalena Fernández, Thomas Glassford, Gabriel de la Mora, Marie Orensanz, Alejandro Otero, Miguel Angel Ríos, Melanie Smith, and Ana Maria Tavares. All of these artists use close observation of nature as a starting point, whether conceptually or in terms of materials used, to create this diverse body of work dating from 1950 to today.
During the unprecedented global shutdown caused by the COVID-19 pandemic and a radical shift in lifestyle, many people have found the opportunity to reconnect with nature by spending more time outdoors and adopting a slower-paced lifestyle more attuned to natural rhythms. The artists presented here explore themes from environmental conservation to cycles of life and death and celebrate the inherent order and beauty within nature both on a microscopic and a macroscopic scale.
A return to nature might be the only answer to the mounting environmental and global health crises we as a population face today. Within nature, many answers can be found as to how to live responsibly and sustainably, and many cures may be found to the illnesses that plague our population.
The gallery is open by appointment only. We are closely following local government guidelines and taking every precaution to ensure the well-being of our visitors and team. To schedule a visit, call or text Will Isbell at 832.264.3466, email email@example.com, or call 713.529.1313.
