For her latest solo exhibition, Dance of Gestures, Houston-based Colombian artist Loriana Espinel, takes inspiration from the pre-Columbian pictographs of the Chiribiquete National Park in Colombia to develop a visual system based on the intersection of two different styles of calligraphy: the fluid lines of Japanese ink painting and angular gothic calligraphy.

Dance of Gestures combines both abstract and representational approaches and goals. Espinel writes of her work: “I aim to create a mural that is both abstract and representational. The lines will suggest natural forms while being expressive and dynamic on their own. I want viewers to appreciate both the shapes and lines and their interplay”.

The exhibition is part of the annual Sawyer Yards program at Sabine Street Studios’ East Corridor Gallery, a space dedicated to hosting exhibitions dedicated to the line as an essential, conceptual element in visual art.

The opening reception will be held on Thursday, July 18 from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. and the exhibitions is on view from July 18 to August 31. All exhibitions and activities are free and open to the public.
