Opening reception: Thursday 27 January, 6-8pm
Sapling is thrilled to present Cecilia Granara’s solo exhibition and her London debut. The Paris based painter arrives in the UK after solos in Paris and Milan and in the wake of a flurry of attention, her paintings illustrated on the front page of the Figaro during FIAC 2021.
Granara uses painting, drawing, writing, and installation to explore self-fiction, poetry and symbolic iconography. She draws on cultural attitudes to sexuality and bodies, using colour as a vehicle for emotions. For this exhibition, she has created a new body of work that employ iconographic and emotive cues to reach through eyes of the viewer into the heart and the gut.
