Amparo Sard: The Error of Oversight: New Work

Press Release

PRESS RELEASE

In her first exhibition at the Rena Bransten Gallery, Spanish artist Amparo Sard explores themes of identity and confinement. Using a unique form of pointillism, Sard creates small works on paper consisting of thousands of pinholes resulting in intricate imagery that can only be descrided as pixilated. In The Error of Oversight, Sard uses her own image to create a body of work involving a narrative of a woman imprisoned by an unseen force, yet seemingly resigned to it. Sard uses glass walls, wooden boards, water and small spaces as metaphors for the space the woman due to her indecision. Sard's struggle with water is particularly engaging and is encapsulated beautifully within her video work, allowing for yet another dimension to the exhibition. Yet there is some hope for her character as the woman begins to make actions toward shedding her old identity. The exhibition is both subtle and austere; prominsing to have viewers questioning what role indecision has played within their own lives.

Sard was born in Mallorca, Spain and has exhibited extensively in international venues. Her work can be found in the collections of MoMa, New York; Guggenheim, New York; West Collection, Philadelphia; and Deutsche Bank Berlin. She lives and works in Mallorca.
