    Patricia Leite: Caninana

    03 June – 25 September 2021
    For her inaugural solo exhibition at Thomas Dane Gallery, Patricia Leite presents a new series of oil on wood paintings informed by the landscape of São Paulo’s Barra do Una. Leite’s paintings frequently involve the layering of pigment to ruminate on temporal and evanescent states such as qualities of light, ephemeral atmospheres and momentary sensations. In this new body of work, Leite examines a particularly biodiverse ecosystem, portraying the flora, fauna, waterfalls and seascapes of the region. As a site of outstanding natural beauty, the Barra do Una is also subject to profound environmental damage. For Caninana, Leite distils the Barra do Una’s biodiversity to its essence, making visible details otherwise overlooked and celebrating the region’s abundant yet fragile complexity.
