DESCRIPTION

In her first solo exhibition with LivingRoom Gallery, 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.
