Melissa RiosApril 2023
JO-HS is thrilled to announce the representation of Melissa Rios,
Melissa Ríos artistic production focuses primarily on painting and drawing where she explores and contemplates images and space from a feminine, literary, poetic and surrealist perspective, using the limits between figuration and abstraction as a stylistic resource. Her paintings aim to create visual and imaginary stories or narratives closer to a dream than to reality.
Full of great emotional and existential charge, as an exercise in self-knowledge and catharsis, which she shares in an intimate and almost personal way with theviewer.
Her academic training involves architecture and advertising design, in a multidisciplinary way she has developed parallel projects of art direction, internal space, product design, furniture and photography.
JO-HS will be exhibiting a solo presentation of Melissa’s paintings during Frieze, New York opening May 16th. For more information about Melissa Rios work or the gallery’s upcoming program in New York City please email firstname.lastname@example.org
