Pietà, 2016, chromatic ink on paper, 43 x 35.5 cm
Catinca Tabacaru Gallery on the Lower East Side is hosting the first solo exhibition of Xavier Robles de Medina, a Surinamese artist whose drawings explore a history that predates him, yet shapes his cultural identity. The exhibition, titled If you dream of your tongue, beware, presents a collection of eleven drawings ranging from painterly streetscapes to fragments of human interactions. His renderings are both strikingly detailed, yet simultaneously surreal—as seen in his piece Untitled, a large white space is strewn with rough cuts of partial heads and a woman’s calves extending beneath the hemline of her dress.
