Please join us for the opening reception of “Doesn’t Contradict, But May Modify”, monoprints by Yesenia Bello on display at Same Day Cafe. Event starts at 6pm on Wednesday September 4.
Light snacks will be provided courtesy of Same Day Cafe 🙂
Yesenia Bello (b.1994 Norristown, PA) lives and works in Chicago. Her practice stems from her lived experience as a first-generation Mexican-American and especially from the loss of her first language over time. Through play, Yesenia explores the sensations of a slow slippage and resulting quick discoveries. Her monoprints on fabric use the method of screenprinting with crayon and ink to amplify the mysterious and chance-based qualities of the process itself. She aligns a similar feeling of ‘not knowing’ and ‘blind faith’ with this work. Through machine sewing, she enacts a retracing of the first print layer – an excavation of what came before in an attempt to recreate the surface.
Yesenia’s work will be on display every Tuesday-Sunday during the Cafe’s normal business hours until early November.
