the ART GALLERIES at TCU
FORT WORTH CONTEMPORARY ARTS

Sandra Vásquez de la Horra

Opening Reception Friday, August 28, 6 – 8 pm

Exhibition on view through October 10, 2015

For her first exhibition in Texas, Sandra Vásquez de la Horra presents a series of recent drawings featuring strange figures enacting nightmarish behavior. Born in Chile, now living in Berlin, the artist is recognized for her captivating and unnerving images which explore psychological aspects of identity, religion, sex and myth. Using pencil, she draws on different types of found paper which she then dips in wax, resulting in mysterious, seductive works which simultaneously intrigue and provoke fear in the imagination of viewers.
