Now – May 2022: Paintings from the Confinement

This new installation in the American art galleries comprises 11 intimate egg tempera paintings by San Diego-based artist Marianela de la Hoz. The group of works all were created in 2020 to 2021 in response to the transformative circumstances imposed by the global pandemic of COVID-19. A related installation features two self-portraits by local artist Carlo Miranda, who worked as a nurse during the pandemic.

“During these very long months of confinement all of us have changed in many ways. At least for me it has been a time to reevaluate and confirm that the only treasures I have are my loved ones, family, friends, and art; everything else remained as non-essential.” – Marianela de la Hoz
