This event has ended.

In “Curious Nature”, Alcantara uses the symbolism of duality to explore the connection between life and death, as well as the beauty and cruelness of natural things, including landscape, animals and humans. The exhibition coincides with a feature story on the Artist in Hi-Fructose Magazine’s October 2013 issue. While the majority of this exhibition consists of oil paintings on wood, it also includes sculptures of unique dolls inspired by Alcantara’s works on paper. Her creations have been described as morbidly romantic, and connected via a dreamlike narrative. Through her paintings, she contemplates the complex interconnectedness of opposites as seen through the prism of myth, fable and fantasy.

Alcantara lives in San Francisco, and received her BFA from the San Francisco Art Institute. Her work has been exhibited broadly in the US and Europe and published in many publications including: Hi-Fructose, Juxtapoz, Raw Vision, and Art Doll Quarterly. A collection of her work is compiled in a book entitled “Creatures of Saintly Disguise”.
