Art Produce’s spirited exhibition “Retelling/Recontar,” on view through April 30th, celebrates the sharp vision and distilled epiphanies of Marianela de la Hoz and Helen Redman. These fierce painters share an interest in presenting characters who embody the tension of living in a shifting, and at times declining cultural landscape. Drawing on a vast personal archive to juxtapose symbols, creatures, icons, and humans, they engage in a conversation that relocates our faith in hybridity and hierarchy.
About the Artists:
Helen Barchilon Redman, MFA, is an internationally-exhibited figurative painter, mixed-media artist and educator whose work spans decades. Since the early 1960s, Redman has been creating and presenting art from a female perspective that explores body image, personal identity, and life cycle experience. This has included pregnancy, mothering, loss, various stages of her children's growth and gender identity, menopause, and aging. Redman’s art is included in the permanent collections of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston; Brooklyn Museum, New York; Frost Art Museum, FIU, Miami; San Diego Museum of Art, Colorado Springs Fine Arts Center, University of Colorado Collections, Boulder; Women’s Museum of California, San Diego, and Cornell Fine Art Museum, Winter Park, Florida. Redman, a continuous force for the support and recognition of women artists, co-founded Front Range Women in the Visual Arts in Boulder, Colorado in 1974 and the San Diego Women's Caucus for the Arts in 1992 and is currently a member of the Feminist Image Group (FIG). www.helenredman.com
Marianela de la Hoz creates highly detailed realistic paintings and drawings exploring the very core of our shared humanity. Her work, primarily in egg tempera, is meticulous and poetic. Her commissioned installation “Heaven and Earth, the Determined Freedom of an Undetermined Life” was acquired by the San Diego Museum of Art for its permanent collection. She has been the subject of numerous museum exhibitions throughout her career and included in countless group shows internationally. She is a resident of San Diego and was the recipient of the San Diego Art Prize for 2014.
