LaCa Projects proudly presents Repetitions, a solo exhibition featuring works by Argentine artist Santiago Quesnel. This is Quesnel’s second solo show at LaCa Projects. Repetitions is a name that honors Quesnel’s intention to create mutations and variations of the same mental image, resulting in an examination of non-traditional landscapes generated from the intersection of record, experience, and memory. While the ethereal scenes might initially appear conventional, a discovery occurs—a burst of color in an otherwise subdued palette, an object that seems out of place, or subtle traces of human inhabitance, or perhaps, interference.

Locals like Alexandra Loesser and Phoebe Alicia gave us a peek (one of Loesser’s works features David Bowie and Alicia’s features kittens) and CL graphic designer and artist Dana Vindigni shared another kickass board design (pictured) that goes down the rabbit hole.
