Art Exhibitions

Solo Exhibition

3 November 2019 - 23 November 2019

The Daville Baillie Gallery at Victoria Yards takes great pleasure in welcoming multitalented Portuguese artist Xana Abreu to our gallery. Although the widely renowned artist has been exhibiting selected works on our group shows for the past year, she finally asserts her local presence with her first solo exhibition in Johannesburg.
 
In her large, magical portraits Abreu paints stories of a parallel world, filled with real and imaginary beings, animalized humans and humanized animals, in the skin of other people. Essentially, these are women who become the reflection of the artist and her vision about life. In these stories we find real experiences of childhood, or those more recent, and dreams.

This is the world that Xana Abreu wants to share with us. It is a carnival of perception in which the artist displays her innermost desires and fears on the surface of her visage. We don’t need to go any deeper because she has shown us everything we need to know.
