The Brink Gallery is pleased to announce the upcoming exhibition entitled "Retrieval from an Unconscious Mind", by Gissette Padilla.

Gissette Padilla was born in Venezuela and currently lives and works in Houston, Texas. She has an MFA in painting and printmaking from the University of Texas at San Antonio (2011), and a BFA in painting and drawing from the University of Houston (2008).

"My current work addresses the notion of memory as a constant re-construction. Using painting, drawing, and various printmaking techniques, I construct multi-layered images that evoke the experience and residual energy of fragmented spaces, with the consistently shifting moments that make up a single memory. My paintings are amalgamations of real, distorted, and perceived experience built from fragments of personal photographs, memories, and found images. Visually representing both the construction and crumbling of memory, the work exists in the unrefined space between past and present."

"The history of my process in constructing my work is an important element. To be able to see through the layers of the work washes; pattern, and line combine together yet retaining their individual identity. My work walks the line between figurative, representational, and abstract art. With the use of pattern, color, and line, I am able to create a space that visually represents how a memory might look over time with missing parts and images overlapping each other."

Please join us for a reception with the artist on Friday, January 4th, 5 - 8pm.
