Nohra Haime Gallery Presents Francisca Sutil's MUTE, 10/1
Francisca Sutil's new proposal implies an unexpected turn. Her production is totally different to her earlier work, as if she had executed it decisively and without regard to any risk. But oddly enough, it is similar in its key elements to her usual practice. This time, the artist has decided to express, or rather materialize a gesture, an almost ritual gesture, full of rhythm and pulsating beat, like if she was putting on paper the manifestation of a critical and decisive moment in her production. This trance, that occurs only in the privacy and solitude of the workshop, is now on display at Nohra Haime Gallery.
With a methodically repetitive manner, she decides to stain the surface with the brush, leaving a mark that calls for the next one, and the next one, and together they come to assemble a chained sequence. A mark is never the same as the one next to it - it has subtle differences depending on the pigment and the pressure with which the brush strokes the surface. In this liberating exercise, she creates genuine textures that mesmerize and seduce not only visuality, but trap the viewer in the same trance that made her produce them.
This is a significantly large body of work, and here we show only a selection, the most distinctive series of this disciplined, elegant, mysterious and poetic work. So perhaps this is why the artist has decided to title the show with the work "mute." Because this work is not to be verbalized, but to be seen, observed.
