Opening Reception: Saturday, September 14 from 5pm to 8pm
Gordana Geršković’s latest work takes us to Mérida in the Yucatán Peninsula, where she lived for a year and studied new forms of art under the mentorship of master painter and sculptor Abel Vázquez. Geršković captures intimate textures, surfaces and urban abstractions using a macro lens to zoom into the details. Here she contemplates the vibrant colors and worn, weathered textures of the ancient city, with its rich Mayan and colonial heritage. She also for the first time exhibits paintings as well as photographs. The Croatian-born Geršković currently lives in the Washington DC area.
