FOOD FOR THOUGHT FROM THE SOUTH, WITH LOVE

Almine Rech Gallery New York is pleased to announce Ghost Studies, an exhibition of new paintings on linen and sculptures by Brazilian artist Ana Mazzei.

Mazzei's paintings are in the same spirit as the radical and harmonious sculptures she is known for that are presented alone or in groups with a quiet, slightly anthropomorphic presence. Sometimes painted or varnished, and made primarily out of wood – a flexible and generic material that appeals to an artist who likes to “make” things by herself in the studio – Mazzei’s standing arrangements of angles, curves and straight lines quote the vocabulary of the avant-garde with a distinctive twist.
