Join the Gallery at MBS as we bid farewell to the solo exhibition by French/Chilean photographer, Catalina Sour Vasquez, organized by independent curator, Hillarey Jones.
Vasquez’s series Projets Dissolvants is the catalyst for what has become her own unique, surrealist style. Superimposing imagery that caters to the senses with her delicately designed mise en scene, while utilizing color and über surrealist elements, she allows the viewer to focus on one specific, if not subconscious, component of the photograph – often addressing the social impact of our mundane everyday lives and the toll that it infiltrates on our mental and physical well being. There are direct references, colors or details that placate to a specific smell, touch or often taste. She will shamelessly critique society’s tendencies for mass consumption utilizing a candy coated stage that is easy for us to digest…and almost impossible to resist.
The closing reception will be held on Thursday, April 26, 2018 from 7:00-9:00pm inside the gallery space at MBS. Light refreshments will be provided.
About the Gallery at MBS
“Yoga is the artwork of awareness on the canvas of body, mind, and soul.”
~ Amit Ray
Art and Yoga are natural companions on the path to wholeness. By instilling a gallery ambience at Mind Body Soul Yoga, in the heart of King William, artwork on display creates an atmosphere that encourages submission of the logical mind and linear will to the holistic creative awareness accessible through yoga asana, pranayama and meditation practices. Surrounded by artwork, practitioners of all levels can let go of their everyday mental routines to unlock an authentic experience of self that nourishes Mind, Body and Soul.
