Os Gemeos ‘Miss You’ at Prism

by Stephanie ChefasPosted on

Recently, the highly praised Os Gemeos exhibit entitled ‘Miss You’ concluded at Prism LA and Hi-Fructose dropped by the gallery to check out the new works in person. The Brazilian art duo’s first solo show with the gallery featured new large scale paintings and sculptures within an immersive installation that was like stepping into the minds of Os Gemeos. When immediately upon entering the exhibition, you’re welcomed by dozens of head-shaped lamps fashioned in the likeness of the artists’ iconic characters. Canvases exploding with vibrant colors and textures adorn the gallery walls taking the viewer on a surreal narrative as the artists pay homage to their native Brazil; think portraits of multi-cultural subjects, beachside entertainment and colorful costumes and masks.  In addition to the richly hued paintings was a floating head embodying an infinity of mirrors as well as an adjoining room playing an interactive video of psychedelic imagery. “Miss You” invites the viewer to leave reality at the door and step into an alternative universe where dreams and imagination flow. – Stephanie Chefas
