"Lost and Found"

When: Thu., Nov. 3, 6:30-9 p.m. 2016

Cinnabar presents "Lost and Found" featuring two graduates from UTSA’s Master of Fine Arts program – Sarah Fox and Andrei Renteria. Fox’s work often pieces together cut paper from books, magazines, and the Internet to form beautiful and captivating collages of part-human, part-animal creatures. These hybrids are a symbol of freedom, and in "Lost and Found," her creatures enact stages of motherhood and loss. Renteria’s work is influenced by his transnational experiences and concern for the sociopolitical issues surrounding the US/Mexico border. His most recent works are a series of portraits of desaparecidos, or people who have disappeared due to border violence. Superimposed on the likenesses of these lost people are found objects – newspaper cutouts, antique book pages, coins, dried flowers, or bits of string. They appear to be artifacts of a life once lived or offerings left at the tomb of a saint.
