The D’Aguilar Art Foundation is delighted to announce that we are taking part in Transforming Spaces weekend on March 17th & 18th, 2018. We will exhibit new paintings by contemporary Bahamian artist Allan Pachino Wallace alongside a selection of works by the late Brent Malone in an exhibition entitled ‘MUSE’. For this exhibition, Pachino will respond to specific paintings by Malone to highlight the practice of working from the figure as muse over the past half-century in The Bahamas: from the 1960’s to present day.

This week, we highlight one of the pieces currently showing in MUSE, an exhibition curated for Transforming Spaces. The show juxtaposes work of contemporary artist Allan Pachino Wallace against master artist Brent Malone. This painting, "Jupiter", is a direct response to Malone's "Earth Sea Sky", and at first glance the only similarity one may notice is the posing of both subjects: hands held out to the side, holding flowers, gaze piercing the onlooker strait-on. Upon closer inspection one notices that Pachino, like Malone, also uses heavy symbolism to connect his figure to nature. The subject cracks out of the (earth) stone, and moves upward into the blue (sky) top part of the composition. Both paintings elevate the feminine with symbolic storytelling.
This week, we highlight the artwork of contemporary artist Allan Pachino Wallace in preparation for our upcoming exhibition for Transforming Spaces, MUSE. Pachino completed this mural three years ago for our 2015 Transforming Spaces Exhibition, "Hationary." This year, he will again showcase his work in a two-person exhibition alongside the works of the late Brent Malone.
