"Textual Undercurrents" by Elysa D. Batista Opening NightThursday, August 6, 6pm-9pm – O Cinema Wynwood, 90 NW 29th St, Miami Wynwood Arts District

Batista makes three-dimensional work that explores sign and text as sculptural communicators of coded information. The evolution of language as a form of interpreting the world is a constant investigation in her work. Batista carves and cuts manipulated digital typography onto materials ranging from wood, cardboard, foam core, cork or mechanically assisted onto materials such as plexiglass. It is executed in dialogue with advertorial signage that can be encountered in a storefront window or outdoor space. From anagrams to poetic sayings, Batista’s words allow the viewer to decode his/her own meaning through the multiplicity of language. Presented in partnership with O Cinema Wynwood, on view August 6 – October 4, 2015.
