Silvana Facchini Gallery presents:
Sheila Elias “Tribute to Africa”

November 2015 – February 2016
SILVANA FACCHINI GALLERY
1929 NW 1ST Ave. Miami, FL 33136

Her latest project is called Tribute to Africa. It is based on a journey she took to Africa. Sheila’s travels around the world have influenced her art in dramatic ways; the essence of the countries always is part of the image that she takes away when visiting.
The new paper and canvas pieces are also partially done on the iPad whenever inspiration struck her recalling the beautiful fabric that she encountered while on her trip and inspiring her to convey the images with an African feel. She also likes to interweave past and present cultures in a marriage of visuals using a vast array of personal photographs that she took on her journey as well as other graphic representations. Always surprising to her is how much her travels impacts the ideas she embraces when creating and has named this series as such.

“Older than Jesus” – A Bakehouse Art Complex Exhibition

“Younger Than Jesus” is the first edition of the “The Generational,” the New Museum’s new signature triennial, fifty artists from twenty-five countries were presented. The only exhibition of its kind in the United States, “The Generational: Younger than Jesus” offered a rich, intricate, multidisciplinary exploration of the work being produced by a new generation of artists born after 1076. Known to demographers, marketers, sociologists and pundits variously as the Millennials, Generation.

The Bakehouse Art Complex now entering its 30th year has been a spot for older artists, now exploring and emerging in their own right. Our show “Older than Jesus” will be focusing on artists that did not have it all figured out as teenagers, artists that took time and explored other careers or just needed some extra time to ripen. Each artist will be at least 34 years old with a few doubling that, showing that Generation X, Y and Z’s view are still valid.

Curated by Justin Long as part of their Second Friday Series. It opened November 21, 2015. Sheila was a part of an artists’ panel at the Bakehouse Art Complex closing off the exhibition on January 8, 2016

Sonic Silence II: Nature, Destruction, Civilization

Pre-Art Basel Exhibition at Sheila Elias Studio, 2014
Exhibition curated by Roberta Gonella

“Moody, apocalyptic, prophetic Sheila Elias’s groundbreaking show is a continuum of her “Sonic Silence” started in 2004.

Her combination of large-scale photo-murals digitally applied imagery surrounds the viewer in an enveloping mystery. Where are we humans in these deceptive beautiful haunting photos of Miami’s iconic hotels blowing up?

It is a society in turmoil amid a fading landscape of the nature that once was there .One of Miami’s most forward thinking and talented artists is the only artist of today that is taking on what is really happening to Miami (it may be a warning of what our future holds).

I advise the lover of art to see this show for it is an important show not only historically but for the sheer force of an artist at her best.”

~ Roberta Gonella
