Exhibition - Alice Quaresma | Le Magyzn

Tappan x Le Magyzn Exhibition:

 

In collaboration with Le Magyzn, Tappan is proud to present Escape, an exhibition of recent works by New York-based artist Alice Quaresma. Escape celebrates Quaresma’s experience documenting the landscape of Los Angeles during her residency at the Tappan Studio.

 

Quaresma has in her curriculum a number of awards, special projects invitations and residency programs, including the renowned Foam Talent Prize in Amsterdam. She already had her work published in major magazines, newspapers and websites in Brazil, Japan, US and Europe. Quaresma received her MFA from Pratt Institute in 2009 and she was selected as one of PS122 Exhibition Prize winners during that same year. 

 

Alice Quaresma says

"These works approach space from a poetic perspective; they don’t portray truth of any true social reality; rather, the pieces create a ludic image of a familiar location."

 

Quaresma has been experimenting with materials that allow her photographs to be sensorial and playful, pushing the boundaries of photography’s two-dimensionality. Quaresma captures the outsider point of view in this series of work, creating ludic and contemplative images that clash with hand-painted marks added to the photograph, “These works approach space from a poetic perspective; they don’t portray truth of any true social reality; rather, the pieces create a ludic image of a familiar location,” explains Quaresma.

 

“The Tappan Atelier residency gave me the opportunity to explore parts of California in a deeper way, in order to create a duality between reality and imagination,” says the artist. “In this way, Escape becomes a poetic portrait of California coast cities. Each city I photographed during this project are confronted by the repetitive action of the waves that reinvent themselves every time they come and go.”Tappan is dedicated to discovering and investing in the careers of today's best emerging artists. Born out of the desire to reinvent the art buying experience, we straddled both the online and physical realms to make art comfortable, approachable and accessible to all. Tappan is a group of storytellers, creating insight and connection between our artists and their collectors.

 

Le Magazyn is a concept store born from the desire to bring the best of “Brazilian Bossa” design to LA. The Pacific Avenue store features a unique selection of handcrafted home decor, accessories, as well as mid-century and contemporary furniture and art. While the pieces do not all hail from Brazil, most items are made in Brazil by artisans and craftspeople dedicated to the best materials and enduring quality.Le Magazyn is carefully curated by founder Ana Kozak, who moved with her family from Sao Paulo to LA a few years ago.
