LILIANA BLOCH GALLERY: "Predicament of the Subject

JAN 5 - FEB 10, 2019

Predicament of the Subject is the title of Myra Barraza’s new solo exhibition at Liliana Bloch Gallery. The title “Predicament of the Subject” stems from Aristotle’s recognition of ten predicaments, or attributes that sum the range of human thought, in which one, or other, could find a category for any, and all concepts. Myra Barraza has created a series of small -scale social media paintings of men’s portraits of portraits referencing identity fluctuation. The exhibition also includes pieces from her Feral Female series, in which the artist paints what she calls “female sexuality portraits”. Barraza’s depictions constitute a sensual exploration of the frontier of female and male representation.
