The seventh exhibition in the Raw/Cooked series\, t itled Supple Beat\, presents the work of Gowanus-based artist Mare la Zacarias. Recommended by Ramírez Jonas\, Zacarias has created four site- specific sculptural works inspired by the Williamsburg Murals\, uniting her interests in abstract forms\, the history of objects\, and urban renewal. Her large-scale pieces appear to be climbing the walls of the Museum’s firs t-floor lobby and Great Hall\, interacting with the architecture as if they were murals come to life. Zacarias draws on the concept of resilience impl ied by the Williamsburg Murals and explores the idea of bouncing back from adversity\, relating to the history of the public housing project for which the murals were commissioned and the history of the works themselves. She constructs her unique sculptural forms from window screens and joint compou nd\, which she then paints with original patterns. In Supple Beat\ , Zacarias’s patterns are inspired by the related murals’ unique color pale ttes and geometric forms. Born and raised in Mexico City\, Zacarias has pai nted more than thirty large-scale public murals. She holds an MFA from Hunt er College.
