Traces of History: Drawings of Adriana Espinosa Calle
NEW YORK, NY – Chelsea’s Agora Gallery will feature the original work of Adriana Espinosa Calle in Chelsea International Fine Art Competition Exhibition. The exhibition opens August 19, 2017 and runs through August 30, 2017 with an opening reception on Saturday, August 19 from 6-8 pm.
“The creation of my work revolves around memory and identity,” Adriana Espinosa Calle says, pointing to the facts, protagonists, and physical spaces—be they personal or historical—that form a unique life. Espinosa Calle is interested in the traces left behind, particularly those of people in American continents , from the petroglyph to the bar code. Her mixed-media drawings combine travel documents with portraiture, watercolors, and scattered symbols. Ultimately, she would like her drawings to inspire reflection on the importance of origin in the construction of identity.
Adriana Espinosa Calle lives in Chia, Colombia, and works in Bogotá.

About the Exhibition
Chelsea International Fine Art Competition Exhibition
This August Agora Gallery presents the selected artists of the 2017 Chelsea International Fine Art Competition. As in years past, the work on display is of incredible variety and extraordinary skill. There are precise, spare drawings in the same gallery as maximal, playful sculptures. There are monochrome, graphic paintings that explore repetition hung near hyper realistic still lifes that take inspiration from the classics of centuries past. There are imagined lands and images of human moments that ring with truth. Even two selected landscape photographers defy comparison - some produce stoic, black-and-white views of single trees, while others create expansive vistas in full color. The 2017 jurors' picks share nothing except fearlessness, adroit execution, and unforgettable originality.
