> DESCRIPTION
Nancy Friedemann Sanches lives and works in Bogota, Colombia and New York. In her paintings, she manipulates symbols that deal with ideas about femininity and the role of women in art history. Friedemann is inspired by Spanish colonial painting styles and Minimalism. When she paints, she presents typically feminine subject matter like flowers, lace and embroidery. In painting these delicate objects in a careful and detailed way, Friedemann monumentalizes them, giving them a heroic place and scale. By re-enacting the process of making lace through drawing and painting, she captures the essence in monumental works, each done with tiny strokes and an economy of materials. In What Comes After, explores the experience of identity and memory from a feminist perspective.
