Celea Guevara

Sawyer Yards presents "Carving Through Identity and Self-Awareness," a solo exhibition of linocut relief prints by Honduran-born artist Celea Guevara at the East Corridor Gallery in Sabine Street Studios.

At the heart of Guevara's work is an ongoing self-examination, and a conscious documentation of the human condition, delving into the processes that transform us. The creative process, in this case, the engraving technique, is crucial for Guevara, allowing her to experiment tangibly but also taking her to personal depths that challenge her. Achieving in this world full of adversity is difficult, but despite everything she finds in her line-work the tools to keep going.

This body of work gathers elements from her own Garifuna culture and spiritual perspective. Her artwork speaks strongly to the themes of identity, culture, and folklore, and contains iconographic elements significant in the Garifuna culture such as nature, drums, plantains, fish, coconuts, the head wrap, etc. These elements are combined consistently with the female figure. Guevara firmly believes in the significant role that women play in the development of humanity with their resilience, and their capability to endure and overcome challenges.

The exhibition will be on display through January 13, 2024.
