ART: 101 DRESSES by Adriana CARVALHO at the ART Center /South Florida

by Angeles

101 Dresses, a solo exhibition of works by Adriana Carvalho, will take the viewer on her evolutionary voyage through her years as a resident artist at the Art Center/South Florida. The exhibition will showcase the process and creative thinking behind her obsession with the iconic metal dress sculptures that appear to have mutated 
and spawned like humanistic creatures.
Carvalho's work evokes humor, empathy, loss and sexuality.

Brazilian born Adriana Carvalho received her BFA from the Faculdade de Artes Plasticas in Sao Paulo. Upon graduation, she moved to Chicago where she was first introduced to the welding process. Chicago’s extensive resources for recycled materials, world renowned architecture, iron structures and public art influenced her art making process, merging the spirituality of her native country, Brazil, with the industrial personality of Chicago. Adriana presently lives and works in Miami Beach, an environment that has fostered her work and allowed it to become more adventurous by incorporating diverse, unexpected materials to communicate her ideas. She creates artwork out of passion and ideas from circumstances in daily life. The challenge for Adriana is working with harsh items as metal products, and delicately transforming them into an artwork that represents her dreams, fears 
and social commentary.
It's a must see exhibition!!!
Fabulous details from an innovated work... so exquisite and elegant.
Mickey Mouse looks a little bit uncomfortable...Don't you think?... but the idea is absolutely art....
It's a stunning dress... but just the idea to wear's sounds to me dangerous and very complicated....
This is the great floor of the ArtCenter South Florida Studios.... incredible beautiful!
