Hundred Years Gallery is delighted to welcome back Ana Pallares for a second residency, and third solo exhibition in the gallery since her 2016 debut. New large scale works will be created on site by the artist during the January residency and exhibited during February 2018.
First Thursday Late Opening 1st February 18:30 – 21:30
Painter and poet, Ana’s work reflects on pain, death and other intangible realities which too often occur with little, or incomprehensible, reason. She strives to find and attach new meanings to these realities hoping to present them in a healthier more manageable way: ‘ultimately aiming to turn destructive feelings into constructive action‘
Interested in ambiguity as it plays with the surprise effect, she finds great joy painting the deformed and weird faces of her works with rainbow colours. ‘People feel lost while watching them whereas I feel I could not have expressed the tragicomedy of life in a better way‘.
Born in 1993 in Barcelona, she was fifteen when she discovered graffiti and continued exploring different artistic practices such as painting, illustration and poetry.
Open Studio : Sunday 21st and Sunday 28th January 12:00 – 18:00 in the basement gallery
