Celebrating Color is an exhibition of recent paintings by Brazilian artist, Elisa Carreno. Carreno, who recently moved to Brooklyn, continues her love of vibrant color, which exudes the care-free spirit of her homeland.
Many of Carreno’s abstract paintings are modest sized, but are packed with visual sensation. Carreno considers all aspects of the painting including texture, patterning, and color mixing, which transform her 2D design into a 3D art object.
Carreno often uses directional patterning to move the eye through the composition. She builds bounded shapes of texture to contrast her flat fields of solid color. Her attitude towards painting is lively and evolving as she continues to play with mixed techniques. She reminds us of the fun in painting.
Celebrating Color exhibition is FREE and open to the public for all ages!
Pushkin Creperie Café is located at 541 Myrtle Ave near the campus of Pratt Institute (between Steuben and Emerson Sts., across from the Pratt Store). Regular hours are 10pm-6pm, open daily.
