PATRICIA ZARATE | Five Corners
January 9 - February 19, 2016
Opening Reception: January 7th, 6-9pm
Five Corners is a site-specific installation that engages the room’s architecture with an exploration of primary and secondary colors. Reflected Agenda references the Colombian flag, which consists of three bands of color: yellow, blue and red. Hung in the corners of the room, its three vertical paintings cast reflected glows on the walls. Also included is Triangular Mix, a work that reconfigures a rectangle into two triangles of secondary colors folded into the corners.
