Cristin Tierney Gallery is pleased to participate in The Armory Show. The gallery will present new paintings by Jorge Tacla in the Focus section curated by Carla Acevedo-Yates, Marilyn and Larry Fields Curator at the Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago.
On view will be Tacla’s new and recent paintings devoted to the themes of revolution and evolution. Some of the subjects explored at the fair will reflect Tacla’s celebrated work involving buildings, including the U.S. Capitol, which Tacla has painted several times since the insurrection on January 6th, and various buildings and monuments that embody the history and aspirations of humanity. They are joined by works representing an uncommon turn for the artist: abstract depictions of human figures in protest groups including Black Lives Matter in the United States and the Estallido Social in Chile.
