Green Disks is one of a new series of “tile” paintings by Adriana Varejão that draw motifs from the pre-Hispanic, colonial, and mid-century modern ceramics endemic to Mexico, where she studied them firsthand. Taking inspiration from a bold and dynamic Talavera tile from the 1970s that hints at a larger interlocking design, Green Disks brings the impulses of Brazilian modernism and hard-edge abstract painting into dialogue with pre-Hispanic artistic forebears. Through this conscious interweaving of time, culture, and place, Varejão resuscitates the dialogue between aesthetic systems once segregated by dominant master narratives, raising vital questions about the life and passage of forms in art.Explore Now
