Em Casa: Brazilian Cutlery
Solo Exhibition by Marco DaSilva
Monday, June 3rd at 8:30pm
FREE, Open to the Public
Marco DaSilva’s Em Casa: Brazilian Cutlery is an exploration of Brazilian spirituality and cultural identity through color palettes, textures, and shapes inspired by DaSilva’s pilgrimage to Rio de Janeiro in the summer of 2018. As a gringo-Brasilero from New York, DaSilva’s exhibition, which includes a new mural commission that will serve as the backdrop for Queer|Art|Pride, captures his experience living in the tropical city for the first time on his own.
DaSilva’s paintings often render details of his everyday experiences into bold, colorful symbols that take on mythological proportions. The paintings in Em Casa: Brazilian Cutlery draw on a spiritual reading he received during his visit to Rio de Janeiro and reference places and objects with which he interacted and found significance.
Exhibition open through June 13, more on Marco DaSilva here
