Hales Gallery is delighted to announce Virginia Jaramillo: Where the Heavens Touch the Earth. Taking place at Hales London, this will be Jaramillo’s debut exhibition with the gallery, and her first solo exhibition outside the United States. The exhibition brings together works by Jaramillo from the early 1970s and the end of the decade.
From canvas to paper, Jaramillo’s material experiments with concretising perception place her work in an ancient lineage. It follows in the footsteps of pre-Hispanic cultures which would seek to express their religious beliefs in the architecture of their cities or the construction of complex earthwork mounds. The exhibition’s title, Where The Heavens Touch the Earth, is drawn from the name given to Teotihuacan, an ancient city in Mexico which followed this tradition, constructing an urban architecture representing the cosmological view of its citizens. In Jaramillo’s work, however, multiple cosmologies co-exist, from ancient myths in Greek, Celtic and non-Western cultures to the mathematical systems of classical geometry.
