In ihren Arbeiten entwickelt die Kü\;nstlerin eine expressive Bildsprache\, die Gegenstä\;ndliches in ein Netz komplexer rä\;umli cher Linienspannungen einbindet. Ob Vogelschwä\;rme\, in die Tiefe fl&u uml\;chtendes Unterholz oder Burka tragende Frauen &ndash\; die in der konk reten Gegenwart wurzelnden\, von medialen Vorlagen inspirierten Bildmotive werden einem malerischen und zeichnerischen Prozess unterzogen\, in dessen Verlauf Bilder von groß\;er Ausdruckskraft entstehen. Die wä\;hren d der Arbeit aufkommenden Fragen\, die sich am aktuellen Zeitgeschehen entz ü\;nden\, ü\;bersetzt die Kü\;nstlerin unmittelbar in Linienfor mationen\, in gekrü\;mmte oder gerade\, gebü\;ndelte oder vereinzel te. In der Linie steckt fü\;r Jaworska die Essenz ihrer Gedanken und Em otionen.

&bdquo\;Ich habe immer g ezeichnet\, die Zeichnung ist meine Handschrift&ldquo\;\, so die Kü\;ns tlerin. Die Linie fü\;hrt zum Ziel oder ins Nichts\, hä\;ufig verli ert sie sich auch im Bild und erobert den Raum nach den ihr eigenen Gesetze n. Inmitten der dramatischen Verwerfungen\, die ihre Arbeiten vor dem Hinte rgrund der aktuellen Krisenherde und kriegerischen Auseinandersetzungen zei gen\, wirkt der Ausstellungstitel emblematisch: &bdquo\;Eine Explosion wie von 30 Atombomben&ldquo\;. Die Kü\;nstlerin Renata Jaworska hat ihn w&o uml\;rtlich der Ü\;berschrift einer deutschen Tageszeitung entnommen.\n

From \;December 5&mdash\;December 20\, 2014\, William Reaves Fine Art celebrates the holidays with an exhibition featuring the gallery&rsquo \;s \; Contemporary Texas Regionali sts. \; \; This holiday show\, which wi ll likely become an annual tradition for the group\, will highlight new wor ks by fifteen Contemporary Texas Regionalist artists: \;Randy Bacon\, Mary Baxter\, David Caton\, Margie Crisp\, Keit h Davis\, Charles Ford\, Pat Gabriel\, Billy Hassell\, Lee Jamison\, Robb K endrick\, Laura Lewis\, William Montgomery\, Noe Perez\, Jeri Salter\, and Debbie Stevens. \; Consistent with the gallery&rsquo\;s historical focu s\, William Reaves Fine Art represents this select group of Contemporary Te xas Regionalist artists who paint either a style or subject matter directly inspired by earlier Texas masters who were at work in the early decades of the twentieth century.  \;Evoking the seminal qualities of this classi c period in the state&rsquo\;s art history in their art\, the CTR artists a re fifteen of the state&rsquo\;s most prominent artists.  \;Hailing fro m parts all across Texas\, their works reflect the state&rsquo\;s geographi c diversity.  \;While each captures some of the particular combination of beauty\, richness\, and determined independence that is uniquely Texan\, their subject matters range from historical Texas events to panoramic land scapes\; from photorealistic urban scenes to native Texas wildlife.< /div>\n
 \;\n

Other works include d in the \;Holiday Show \;will be recent works by Texas wa tercolorists Eric Sprohge and Hunter George.

This exhibition will coincide with the final weeks of \;Texas Visions of an Earlier Time\, \;their \;current&n bsp\;exhibition which has been on view and features \;a \;premier \;collection of historic paintings produ ced by foremost artists of the first half of the twentieth century\, offeri ng patrons a &ldquo\;deep dive&rdquo\; into earlier eras of art within our state\, presenting an interesting and diverse selection of 55 works by impo rtant Texas artists working prior to World War II. \; \;Th e juxtaposition of these two exhibitions on the gallery&rsquo\;s walls illu strates a worthwhile overview of the styles and progressions of Texas paint ing during the first half of the twentieth century\, examining a period of roughly 1909 to 1950\, and how those foundational artists and styles are co ntinuing to impact contemporary artists active in the Lone Star State.  \;

The ICA presents Adriana Varej ã\;o\, one of Brazil&rsquo\;s leading \;artists\, in her first so lo museum show in the United States. \;The exhibition spans the period from 1993 to the present \;and includes several series of work. \;< br />
Prevalent throughout the exhibition is Varejã\;o&rsquo\;s interpretation \;of the concept of cultural cannibalism\, or anthropoph agy. The theme dates back to the 1920s\, when Brazilian modernist Oswald De Andrade appropriated the term to create an &ldquo\;Anthropophagist Manifes to.&rdquo\; This declaration urged artists \;and intellectuals to &ldqu o\;cannibalize&rdquo\; the symbolic and cultural \;contribution of its colonizers\, absorbing and transforming it \;to create a new Brazilian culture for the 20th century. \;

In her most recent body of work\, \;Polvo\, Varejã\;o addresses \;race and misc egenation&mdash\;fraught topics in highly diverse \;Brazil\, where a 19 76 government census asking respondents \;to describe their own skin co lor elicited 136 distinct answers. Inspired by 17th- and 18th-century Spani sh \;castapaintings which sought to document the country&rsquo \;s range of ethnic backgrounds\, Varejã\;o selected 33 of the most p oetic answers\, such as \;Sapecada \;(flirting with freckl es)\, \;Café\; com Leite \;(coffee with milk) and&nb sp\;Queimada de Sol \;(sun-kissed)\, and \;had them made i nto tubes of oil paint that appear in the exhibition. Varejã\;o then used the shades in series of self-portraits and color wheels that explore t he complexities of skin color and mixed-race identity. The title \; Polvo \;translates to &ldquo\;octopus&rdquo\; \;in Portuguese\ , a reference to the animal&rsquo\;s ink\, made primarily of melanin\, the substance that gives human skin and hair its color. \;

Minin g Brazilian culture and colonial history\, Varejã\;o&rsquo\;s work is rife with references to historical maps\, Baroque church interiors\, and P ortuguese tiles. Her sauna paintings on the other hand\, \;a series of mostly monochromatic renderings of sleek\, grid-like spaces\, reveal more m odern cubist influences. \;

Like her modernist forebearers\, Varejã\;o devours the rich and diverse culture of post- colonial\, m ulticultural Brazil\, churning \;it together with a strong art-historic al sensibility to create \;work that is provocative\, perceptive\, and disarmingly visceral.
