London based Carolina Mizrahi’s first solo exhibition opens at Bay Gallery Home, Cotswolds on 11 February 2016 at 6pm. Born in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil in 1982 Mizrahi works predominantly in the medium of photography and installations. Her work concerns gender stereotypes, the representation of women in advertising and contemporary beauty rituals. These themes are explored with an element of surrealism which with her background in fashion design, bring a certain inventiveness to her photography, styling and set design.
With ‘Pink’ Carolina’s explores gender association with colour “We live in a reality created by others and we pass this through generations. Pink is part of the established social prison we operate in.”
Mizrahi’s work has been featured in Vogue Brazil, Vogue Gioiello, Vogue Bambini, Vogue Portugal. She has been selected as one of 26 emerging artists from thousands for Future Map an annual exhibition of the finest emerging talent from University of London.
Alexandra O’Brien, owner Bay Gallery Home, Cotswolds & London says of Mizrahi “I discovered Carolina at the Other Art Fair in October 2015 and immediately knew I had to work with her as she’s such a talented artist with huge potential. ‘Pink’ is exploring why pink is for girls and blue is for boys. And you do have to ask the question. Why?”
