Katie van Scherpenberg : Overlooking the Amazon

1 Oct 2021–30 Nov 2021


Cecilia Brunson Projects is delighted to announce an exhibition of the work of Katie van Scherpenberg, her first in Europe. Katie van Scherpenberg (born in Sao Paulo in 1940) has lived and worked in Humaitá, Rio de Janeiro since 1974. While she understands herself primarily as a painter, Scherpenberg has worked in a diverse range of media, producing figurative and abstract works in oil paint and egg tempera, as well as 'interventions' in the landscape working with iron oxides on sand and grass. The diversity of materials and processes is characteristic of her work, which meditates on the role of geography, ancestry and memory across figuration, abstraction and installation.
