‘PRINTS, BOOKS AND SOLITARY THINGS’
‘In this exhibition, the artist presents a series of etchings, artist’s books and objects made during the pandemic. Whether performing, making installations, objects, prints or artist’s books, the repetitive aspect of her process becomes a meditative ritual to explore the elemental uncertainty of time, space and being or social inequities with regard to gender, migrations or race. Thread, ink, fabric, metal and handmade paper are used in metaphorical ways, while honoring sustainability.
Cárdenas’ process involves mindful rituals of repetition and flow, which suggest dichotomies of sacred and profane, East and West, lightness and weight, creating and erasing.‘
Note: Some of the work included on this solo show (see featured image) is part of the online exhibition and book Net Gain: Experimenting with Geometrical Folding, organized by Central Booking NYC Gallery and Sarah Stengle as a pandemic invitational.
