In her first solo exhibition in New York, Edelweiss Cardenas shows new paintings and drawings that feature her “wanderers.” These free wheeling amoeboid forms putter, whiz, float, fall and plod past the viewers eyes in crisp, dark, intuitive line drawings and candy colored, patterned paintings. As they endlessly explore their surroundings, some displaced and others right at home, Cardenas’ figurative articulations emit a quixotic emotive power spanning everything from forlorn to fanciful.
Edelweiss Cardenas was born in Mexico and raised in Chicago. She received her BFA from The School of the Art Institute of Chicago in 2009. She has previously exhibited at Marwen, Murphy Hill Gallery and LivingRoom Gallery in Chicago.
