Hanna Kratsman-Robles: NadA
November 5, 2022 - January 7, 2023
Ro2 Art Gallery is proud to present the gallery's first solo exhibition for Dallas-based painter, Hanna Kratsman-Robles: Nada. The exhibition will open November 5 and remain on view through January 7, 2023.
Nada marks Kratsman-Robles' first solo exhibition and showcases a series of original paintings which embody a kind of complacent derealization accomplished via the artist's deceptively nondescript crops and ubiquitous, keyed-up treatment of subject matter.
Nada is a word in Spanish that has a double meaning. It means "nothing" and it also means "to swim." This exhibition is about a connections and comparison of both meanings of the word. In the series of cropped images; skin, water, and land are treated as the same. The combined depiction of these elements will show the varying mass and gravity of nature and humanity in both their overwhelming largeness and inconsequential smallness.
