Adriana Varejão: Azulejão

1 Oct-10 Dec. The Gagosian presents an exhibition of new work by acclaimed Brazilian artist Adriana Varejão who is best known for her azulejão or “big tile” paintings.

Created on canvas using thick plaster and oil paint, Varejão’s works simulate the azulejão, a traditional Portuguese glazed terracotta tile, and are characterised by cracks that appear during the drying process.

The exhibition includes Varejão’s largest single tile paintings to date, featuring motifs such as a cherub’s head, an architectural fragment, a rose, and a shell, all painted in subtle shades of blue and white.
