Sandra Cinto at Tanya Bonakdar Gallery

Contemporary Brazilian artist Sandra Cinto has a solo exhibition of work at Tanya Bonakdar Gallery that opens this Thursday in Chelsea. Her previous show at Bonakdar Gallery recreated an innocent world seemingly imagined by a child prodigy — a world of elaborate forests seen through dreamy nightlights. I’m interested to see what environments she designs for us this show. The show will be on view until December 21.

Alicia Ehni : Mapping Stone

Catch a newly opened exhibit of sculptural work by Peruvian artist Alicia Ehni at Frederico Seve Gallery. The show includes Ehni’s compact and slighty cubist sculptures made from milky gradients of white marble, alabaster and resin. The series of sculptures are titled Panamerican Highway and allude to the wildly contrasting landscapes around the longest motorway in the world. You can see her sculptures and documentation of artistic process through November 30th.
