> DESCRIPTION

MANO Fine Art proudly presents Faux Perfection, featuring the work of guest artist Toa Castellanos.

Faux Perfection is a multimedia exhibition which explores the concept and consequences of beauty as it is manifested by contemporary media. Castellanos employs the use of collage, drawing, painting, photography and installations both as technique and as a metaphor to bring a poignant focus to displaced values of beauty. Also on view a selection of recent works by MANO.

About Toa Castellanos:
Toa Castellanos is passionate about many things, as an artist she channels her passion for life to explore issues that are consciously most pressing to her: women’s role in contemporary society, ecology, social justice and non-religious spirituality. In her search for expression Castellanos has mastered painting, collaging, print making, etching, monotypes, book art, and other mediums that allow her to articulate her fervor and concerns via several art forms.

Born in Cuba, raised and educated in the United States, with an MA in Art & Education from the University of Notre Dame, Toa Castellanos started her professional career as an artist in Latin America, where she worked with renowned Columbian artist Pedro Alcantara Herran, and established Cuadrante, a serigraphy studio with Armando Martinez Berrio, Virginia Amaya, and Phanor Leon, and later worked with Fabio Daza and his group T-Graba until 2000 when she relocated to the USA. Since arriving to Miami, Castellanos has been actively involved in Miami’s growing art scene.
