Raquel Schwartz’s new show: watercolors and small sculptures created during the pandemic, an intimist reflection on nature, on everyday life, from the sensual textures of ceramics to pastoral illustrations, a vast view of small things.
Raquel Schwartz tells us, in her own words, the conceptual origin of her exhibition:
I’ve been thinking lately about being. To be present in being, the simple act of breathing, and the obligation of happening. Playing, conjecturing, experimenting, flowing towards an imagined, fanciful reality, in the unconsciousness of being present. Being beyond the bounds of time and space. Getting lost in the lights, shades, textures, and colors allows me to be in my Being. How to find readings for potential futures of Being? What drives us to reality and to imagine different ones? Here and now? Being, existing, and becoming.
