In the Bakery, Annet Gelink Gallery proudly presents the second exhibition by Chemi Rosado Seijo. Rosado Seijo shows new works, which represent a retreat to the artist’s roots. In his hometown in the Northern Tropical forest of Puerto Rico, Chemi left pre-prepared white canvases in the forest, registering the passing of time. Humidity, animals, insects, larva, rain, sun and other elements left their mark. After some time, the artist eliminates the loose parts with a small paint-brush, whilst adding a white edge all around the canvas. Here, he adds a text describing the process of the painting endurance and its references to other artists, for instance 45 days in the tropical Forest, Under the Pomarroso, with Andy, Julio and DJ Maria. Bo. Maricaeo VA PR 06 refers to both the tree where the artist left the blank canvas, and its time frame. The names refer to Andy Warhol, Julio Suarez and Mariahuana, who have influenced the artist for this work.
