Cecilia Villanueva’s work crashes through dimensions, taking viewers into an inner space of city landscapes, taking into account how light passes through urban zones and the way people standing near and inside buildings give off their own vibrations. “Houston is so different; when you stand in the middle of the city, you see 360 degrees of light. There’s so much light, so much blue, and because we are so close to the ocean, the sky is turbulent,” she says. And it was that turbulence that caused the major flooding from Harvey, a natural disaster that turned her home into an island and violently changed the pallet while she was completing four of the pieces in her show, “Embraced by the Void.
” Villanueva will take questions about her work during the opening reception.
