"Scopic Ciphers" by Elysa D. Batista at Williams McCall GallerySaturday, December 2, 6pm-9pm – Williams McCall Gallery at FrameWorks, 3196 Commodore Plaza, 2nd Floor, Coconut Grove

Elysa D. Batista exhibits her Scopic Ciphers series at the Williams McCall Gallery in Coconut Grove. The opening reception is open to the public on Saturday, December 2 at 6 pm. The exhibit will run until January 31. Scopic Ciphers is a collection of Batista’s internalized repressed experiences with relation to race, gender, and culture. It is a series of sculptural complaints that dissects the manner in which preconceptions and prejudices vary across both domestic and international spectrums. Batista carves, cuts, and folds manipulated digital typography onto materials including wood and aluminum, which are then mechanically affixed onto material such as plexiglass.
