About the event
The Smallest Gallery in Soho and Cultural Style Week is delighted to present artist Sarah Frances Dias Integration. The work is an exploration of identity, using cultural references and the feminine physique to create a dialogue with the self and the viewer.
The little girl, dressed in traditional / regional clothes from Madeira, the artists hometown, represents the innocence and beauty of cultural specific references, whereas the grown mature woman represents the agglomeration of different cultures in one person, which results in a universal being (integration).
Both figures, in a dialogue with each other, reflect the artists personal journey. The painting as a whole is a celebration of the beauty of cultures and their integration; both the regional and the universal, the specific and the abstract. With this, another layer of meaning can be read where each figure represents these two sides of human identity (one without the other is incomplete): the particular and universal, the child innocence and the mature wise, the past and the future.
This is a FREE art installation that is open 24 hours per day, viewable from the street only.
