In participation with FotoDC 2012, The Gallery at Vivid Solutions announces the solo exhibition of Carolina Mayorga a local Washington, DC artist whose practice utilizes photography to surprising and provocative effect.

Note that this is one of two Anacostia exhibits that will host opening receptions on November 2nd. Divine Revelations: Passages from the Life of Our Lady by Carolina Mayorga will be at The Gallery at Vivid Solutions from 6pm to 8pm and  Steppin’ Out by Michael B. Platt will premiere at Honfleur Gallery from 7pm to 9pm.

Divine Revelations: Passages from the Life of Our Lady is a site-specific photography installation in which Carolina Mayorga uses her own image to recreate Roman Catholic religious scenes inspired by masterpieces and her Catholic upbringings in Colombia. For this project the artist reconstructs iconic depictions of Virgin Mary in a series of photographs and text. This is a continuation of projects Mayorga has worked on previously that examine issues of cultural identity, gender and ethnicity.

Mayorga is a Colombian-born and naturalized American citizen. She has had solo exhibitions in Colombia, Mexico, Kansas and in the Washington, DC, area and has also participated in exhibitions in Europe, Central and South America. She received a BFA in Art and Fiber Arts from Universidad de los Andes, Bogotá, Colombia and a MFA in sculpture from the University of Kansas, Lawrence Kansas.
