Rosemary Cantu’s solo exhibition The Here and Now at K Space Contemporary, Corpus Christi. Dates: March 6 – April 24, 2020
Via K Space:
“The Here and Now is an exhibition of haunting drawings and sculptures by Rosemary Cantu at K Space Contemporary. Cantu’s work is a narrative of her present head space and spiritual journey to find home. The mixed media drawings represent the contemplation of the self and the undertaking of a journey to the unknown. Her figures are often deformed or manipulated into odd, disturbing shapes while her backgrounds consist of layered interiors and/or ominous invented landscapes. Cantu’s sculptures are more abstract, recalling protruding bones with plaster bandages attempting to repair or hold them together. They possess a figurative fragility yet portray a determination and resilience. Cantu’s work portrays a meticulous plan of escape and represents a journey to the here and now.
“Rosemary Cantu was born in El Paso Texas. She attended Texas A&M at Corpus Christi where she received a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree.
