“Through The Veil” – New Paintings by Tatiana Suarez and Craww

San Francisco-based art gallery, Spoke Art are debuting “Through the Veil,” a two person art show featuring a collection of new paintings by Tatiana Suarez and Craww, tonight at their Sutter St. gallery location.

While the artistic styles and inspirations of the two artists are quite different (Tatiana is from Miami, and Craww is from across the pond in the UK), the duo are united by their haunting, yet sensual treatment of the female form in all its fragile vulnerability in their works.

Tatiana’s subjects, doe-eyed vixens depicted through a traditional pop-surrealism lens, expand on the artist’s Cuban heritage with a tropical palate of greens and yellows, interacting with the flora and fauna of the rainforest. The artist’s history as muralist, painter and illustrator come together much like an “ajiaco”, a traditional Cuban stew comprised of diverse ingredients, to inform her new body of oil and acrylic paintings on paper and canvas.

Craww, who was born and raised in the United Kingdom, creates haunting and beautiful works. His subjects have a delicate fragility, depicted with extended matchstick limbs, entwined in a bed of ravens and roses, both recurring elements found throughout his paintings. His women are shown primarily with their eyes closed (a stark contrast to Tatiana’s), resting in what can be interpreted as either a peaceful slumber or a welcome death.

The exhibition will be on view through October 26, 2013. Visit Spoke Art for more details.
