EXHIBIT ON VIEW JULY 18 – AUGUST 31, 2024: Sawyer Yards presents “Dance of Gesture: Loriana Espinel” at Sabine Street Studios-East Corridor Gallery featuring this Houston-based Colombian artist’s visual system based on two different styles of calligraphy: fluid Japanese ink painting and angular gothic calligraphy – and inspired by pre-Columbian pictographs of the Chiribiquete National Park (the largest protected area in Colombia, the largest tropical rainforest national park in the world, and the confluence point of four biogeographical provinces: Amazon, Andes, Orinoco and Guyana).

{Dance of Gestures” combines both abstract and representational approaches and goals. Espinel writes of her work: “I aim to create a mural that is both abstract and representational. The lines will suggest natural forms while being expressive and dynamic on their own. I want viewers to appreciate both the shapes and lines and their interplay.”
