Ni Aquí, Ni Allá is a selection of Carabaño’s work which showcases the in-between space her paintings inhabit. Displacement plays a central role in these images. They stand between our world in their naturalistic renderings and another in abstract ambiguous fields. The paintings are always rooted in something seen, yet they are distant from their sources and often uncanny inappearance. Figures and objects become still in their suspended and phantasmagorical state, existing harmoniously in the velvety space of saturated tones and seamless gradients.

Luz Carabaño (b.1995, Maracay, Venezuela) is an artist and art educator based in Brooklyn, New York. She is interested in the shift that occurs when translating the seemingly mundane to a mythical space within the canvas. Her paintings examine questions pertaining to representation, familiarity, and quasi-abstraction. Carabaño received her BFA from New York University in 2017 and has worked as a teaching artist at St. Luke School, the Children’s Museum of the Arts, and the Dedalus Foundation.
