Isabella Mellado: “Desde el Charco”

The artist’s solo exhibition presents bewitching photographs and paintings.

What’s On View from Isabella Mellado at YoungArts

The celebrated artist Isabella Mellado presents bewitching photographs and paintings in a solo exhibition at YoungArts. The 2014 YoungArts Winner in Visual Arts probes the multifaceted realities of their experience as a queer Puerto Rican of the diaspora, interlacing allusions to folklore, tarot, and astrology. The photograph Fallen Angel (2023) depicts a figure donning a metallic embroidered mask reminiscent of the stubborn yet fiercely loyal taurus, juxtaposed against a pastel wall mural of innocent cherubs. In the image Forward (2022), a figure glamorously dressed in a satin gown and opera gloves emerges from the purifying ocean; surreal tattoos peek out on exposed skin, and a luminous, moon-like mask both conceals and reveals.
