The exhibit opening Saturday October 19, 2013 at 1310 Gallery Sailboat Bend Artist Lofts reflects on the work of daughter and mother. The exhibit, “Tracing the Imaginary” focuses on the artwork of daughter and mother. Both women share a similar trajectory starting their carrier as a raw artist. Sonia Baez-Hernandez after a decade of working in art and sociology got a MFA at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. Francisca Hernandez began doing ceramic after retired. In 1998 Hernandez began to develop her drawings and mastering skill.
Hernandez’s drawings transport the audience to imaginary gardens, symbolism, and fragmentation of multiple spaces. In contrast, Baez-Hernandez experiments with a realm of micros organic or anthropomorphic forms that emerge as part of a dialogue between surrealistic overtones, and gestural marking. The exhibition includes two-dimensional pieces, installation art, found –object assemblages, and a performance by Baez-Hernandez. Some of their artworks transform the pitch of illness into artistic expressions and emanate therapeutic value.
