Isabel Brito-Farre

Legacy

March 1 – April 14, 2013

Isabel Brito-Farre, a native Spanish artist who lived in New York but recently moved back to Spain, makes stitched drawings of Americana. When she first came to the United States, she had never seen a hot dog machine or hanging traffic lights; she had never experienced a laundromat or the American flag. She felt as though she would never completely fit in or understand American culture, and created the word "Anostalgia," or "sans nostalgia," to describe this feeling. To her surprise, Brito-Farre has grown to feel as though some of the objects she depicts in her "Anostalgia" series are now part of her, too.
