A Special Preview of David Santiago's latest series Freckleface
Freckleface, a new series of female portraiture where each work is built atop a wood panel hand-picked by the artist. Santiago uses a variety of mediums- primarily charcoal and pastel, but also acrylic, ink, and makeup, bringing them to life. The women of Santiago seem to stare right back at you, blushing with awareness, they reveal a transparency preserved despite the layers of mediums, a hint of wood grain that recalls what they actually made of. This inception of meaning, details within a detail, continue across each face- their freckles, “sun spots”, are stars in disguise, a constellation hidden somewhere within their array.
During the show executive Chef, Andrew Cooper, will present four different ‘bites’ to pair with four different glasses of wine. This is the perfect opportunity for the chef and sommelier to showcase what his restaurant, Terra, has done and can do. Everyone is welcome to attend “Wine, Bites, and Art” featuring David Santiago. After this culinary education, Santiago will be present to talk about her latest series.
