Tatiana Suarez - Rocha Gallery - 466 Brannon Street, San Francisco, CA
Miami based artist Tatiana Suarez has a charming style which is most distinctive - the stylized eyes that draw the viewer into a beautiful and surreal world. Suarez takes full advantage of the paints ability to create creamy, ethereal images on both the canvas and the wall. Rich with symbols that stem from her Brazilians and El Salvadorian heritage, subjects appear as if they are underwater, frozen in lovely stillness. The doe-eyes figures look childlike, but also exude sexual overtones, ornamented with plants, insects and other unsettling accompaniments. Beauty is presented concurrently with exotic - even creepy - creatures to create enchanted narratives.
