Larissa De Jesús Negrón - Distraída
Guts Gallery is excited to present ‘Distraída’, a solo exhibition by Larissa De Jesús Negrón which explores the permanent state of distraction that we seem to find ourselves in every day.
The loss of presence is a theme that pervades the entirety of ‘Distraída’. In her daily life, De Jesús Negrón explains that she often finds herself wrapped up in what spiritual writer Eckhart Tolle calls ‘psychological time.’ For De Jesús Negrón, one does not simply live in the here and now.
Larissa De Jesús Negrón is a multidisciplinary artist who yearns for introspection and finds self evaluation through her intimate and often otherworldly spaces and portraits. Existential themes such as the expectations of women in society, the vitality of nature, using humor as a coping mechanism and the power of storytelling as a tool for healing are all present in her work.
