DAB ART curated and ongoing show AHORA, by featured artist Dominga Opazo
Dominga plays out her imaginative ideas through images and textiles, engaging in a constant and passionate pursuit to discover the divine through art. AHORA is a mixed collection of Dominga’s most current work, including a video of her outdoor installation RODAR, installed in Red Rock Canyon, California. From Intaglio prints to mixed media and hanging textiles, this Chilean native focuses on integrating natural elements with modern design.
Dab Art is also pleased to present a documentary film about Chilean-born artist Dominga Opazo and the inspiration behind her latest outdoor installation, TRAMAR. Incorporating a selection of yarns derived from her native country of Chile, Dominga's large-scale outdoor installation is distinctive and influential. Finding inspiration in Chiloe art, Dominga began to experiment with weaving in art practice. Initially creating a series of prints with configurations inspired by patterns made by the Selkma, these works are then weaved with another print. The rigorous labor required and the intimacy with organic materials is captivating.
On October 8 we will be following the debut of the film with a panel discussion featuring the Dab Art film duo Yessica Torres and Cameron Hurdus talking with the artist Dominga Opazo. The panel will discuss the film's production and the artist's installation.
