Ivonne Kennedy, Painter from Oaxaca, Mexico, on "Tarot, Gestures and Iconography"

Today Art Focus will be joined in the studio by Ivonne Kennedy! Born in the city of Oaxaca in 1971, where she continues to reside. A painter of classic and architectonic reminiscences in an environment that awards the picturesque folkloric and a supposed mythic-magical vision, her resistance to take on the forms of the inexistent but well-publicized “Oaxacan school of painting” singularizes her as much as the urban iconography which she utilizes in her paintings.

Natalie is an Indigenous artist who examines internal and external discourses that shape Indian identity through contemporary installation art.

From the PR:

Painkiller is an original exhibition of 48 Polaroid images by groundbreaking photographer Robert Frank taken from the 1970s through the present. Blue Sky closely collaborated with Frank in selecting photographs to be reproduced in a special series of enlarged prints for this show. Considered one of the most influential figures in the history of photography, Frank has redefined the aesthetic of both the still and the moving image via his pictures and films. Blue Sky is proud to present Frank’s work again in Portland, having first shown his photographs in 1981.
