Forthcoming in January 2023, Portia Zvavahera features expressive and rich paintings by the Zimbabwean artist—made during a time of intense solitude and collective struggle across the globe.
In addition to gorgeous reproductions of 24 paintings, including up-close details and installation views, this catalogue also features a new essay by the curator Meredith Brown and an interview with the artist by the writer Allie Biswas. This catalogue surveys work made since 2017, and features a text by Meredith A. Brown and an interview with the artist by Allie Biswas.
In her paintings, Zvavahera gives form to emotions that manifest from other realms and dimensions beyond the domains of everyday life and thought. Her vivid imagery is rooted in the cornerstones of our earthly existence—life and death, pain and pleasure, isolation and connection, and love and loss.
