LONDON.- Opening during Frieze London, White Cube presents the first UK solo exhibition, 'Maré', of works by São Paulo-based artist Marina Rheingantz and her debut with the gallery. The exhibition features new paintings and tapestries informed by the artist’s observations of tidal rhythms, ocean beds and meteorological conditions.

Rheingantz’s works, which expand the genre of landscape painting, embody the dichotomies inherent within Latin America’s social relations, industrialisation and the sublime natural world.

Dense in paint and often expansive in scale, Rheingantz’s landscapes impart the experience of seeing distant, vanishing horizons and wide, panoramic views. Formed by an accumulation of paint, her works are characterised by their rich surface texture, sense of mass and dissolution of image. Privileging the physicality of paint and its application, Rheingantz explores the realm of the pictorial that exists between matter and abstraction.

The work of Brazilian artist Marina Rheingantz expands the genre of landscape painting, with space seemingly unpopulated, time decelerated and detail momentarily preserved. Created through a varied application of paint, the artist presents place as indistinguishable from atmosphere as well as remembrance and emotional attachment, negotiating seemingly empty regions as accreted with time and resonant with affect. As vestigial repositories of life and conduits of time’s passing, Rheingantz realises landscapes in the wake of activity long since evacuated: wastelands, ruins, training fields. At times adopting an aerial perspective or the suggestion of flight in her paintings, Rheingantz deconstructs topography into its loosest forms, articulating a lyrical suggestion of place that has been ‘seen, sensed and remembered’.
