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.
