Tara Esperanza presents “I See You”, an exhibition of large-format paintings of succulent plants. Not long ago, the artist was commissioned to make a painting of particular succulents. She began paying closer attention to the popular plant on dog walks and runs through the neighborhood and the subject quickly became an obsession. Esperanza looks deeply at the plants’ details and paints them in large close-ups, bringing viewers into intimate contact. She portrays the diverse personalities, textures, colors, shapes and seasonal changes of succulents in soft layers of gradation and boldly beautiful palettes.
