August and Other Stories
18 August 2021 – 18 September, 2021
Artistellar is pleased to present ‘August and Other Stories,’ the first solo show of Jeanine Brito. Every August carries a melancholic languishing as summer winds down, making us nostalgic and reflective. In some ways, we have lived through a year of Augusts, indulging our memories day after day, both bitter and sweet. In her debut solo show “August and Other Stories ” German-born Canadian artist Jeanine Brito presents 11 works that at once indulge and undo her own August memories. With each painting, she seeks to capture not what occurred, but her recollection of what occurred, at once more and less real than what one might say ‘really happened’.

‘Nocturnal Gods' is a solo exhibition of the Colombia-born artist Stefania Tejada. Five remarkable paintings show Stefania’s preoccupation with women and the feminine spirit. This body of work shows fragments of dreams reflecting on her personal longings and connections she makes with the earth and explorations of the self. Rendered in realism resembling photographic images, Stefania creates a multi-dimensional natural scenery that sets the female figure in the centre. The protagonist, portrayed in beautiful outfits, with subtle notes of fashion brands, demonstrates the feminine physics’ elegance and style. Dark tones and animal features are a meditation on ourselves, our dark places, and truthfulness.
