Sara Mejia Kriendler

Sara Mejia Kriendler's "Mother's Milk" is a landscape representative of a spiritual body, used to look at ideas of nurture, nourishment, and creation.

November 16, 2021 - January 8, 2022

For her first solo exhibition at PROXYCO Gallery, the artist Sara Mejia Kriendler presents us with a landscape representative of a spiritual body, which she uses to look at ideas of nurture, nourishment, and creation. Titled “Mother’s Milk,” the show (open through January 8) centers terra-cotta and gold foil, which Kriendler uses in the making of vessels and works drawing from the traditions and history of pre-Colombian artifacts and the cultural significance of gold—topics of interest that are rooted in the Colombian-American artist’s own heritage. Deconstructed across three rooms, viewers at the gallery will find forms suggestive of anatomical parts representing nourishment and healing, including the wall-hanging Hungry Heart (Corazon Hambriento), the Poporo-reminiscent vessels making up Mother’s Milk I, and the tiny field of terra-cotta hands, titled Heart of Earth (Corazón de Tierra).
