In keeping with spirit of Matisse’s painting entitled (The Red Studio, 1911) which reveals a mini retrospective of  his paintings, sculpture and ceramics, Alvarez chose to re-create that room and add some of my own paintings that were in her 2017 exhibition at the Cultural Center curated by Terry R Myers which was titled, Here: Candida Alvarez.

From Candida: “I added the strip of yellow, black and white trim just like I did in the exhibition to hold everything together and to give the paintings a perspective from which to begin new conversations about the spaces they all uniquely occupied in time. It acknowledges my collaboration with Rei Kawakubo of Comme des Garçons. which used that pattern for textile designs on her 2017 Men’s Couture Collection and her Shirt 2017 collection.”
