Show Gallery presents Nocturnal Visions by Javiera Estrada at their new contemporary art space in Hollywood. The exhibition includes new photographic works, sculptures, and a site-specific video installation by the Mexican-born, LA-based artist Javiera Estrada.
Nocturnal Visions is a body of work inspired by the artist’s recent personal journey. Using water as a metaphor for human feeling; Estrada constructs an emotional landscape and paints it with a cloud of colored ink, representing the dark undercurrent in the depth of every person’s experience of life and love. Each photograph in the series depicts a different stage of love: hope, awakening, melting, addiction, chaos, devastation, surrender, and rebirth. The flowers, symbolic of beauty and purity, are captured during the moment of transformation as they interact with
The film installation is a moving representation of the stages of love. It begins light, airy, and free, morphing eventually into the next stage of love as emotional creatures navigate an underwater galaxy. The film moves through sorrow and despair, emerging finally into the light.
Also part of the landscape of Nocturnal Visions is “The Shape of Sentiments”, a collection of small, rock-like pieces crafted from resin and interspersed with glitter, beads, jewels, moss, flowers, and other colorful items. The pieces represent the fragments of oneself that result from the evolution of a relationship, and the wisdom gained through the experience.
