The National Arts Club is pleased to present the New York debut exhibition of Brazilian artist, Rodrigo Franzão.

Born in São Paulo in 1982, Franzão is one of the most dynamic and provocative artists among Brazil's new generation of talent. Enlightened by an early background in Literature and Communications, the work of Rodrigo Franzão reveals an incantatory discourse between the artist, his vision and his uninhibited involvement with found materials.

KATHARSIS transforms this dialogue into an exploration of the human form moving from aspects of beauty to biological condition. The grounding force of Franzão’s line combined with the vibrant play of geometric abstraction gives KATHARSIS a rhythmic power.

The work is further enhanced by the artist’s facile use of mixed media and a brilliant sense of color - an echoing pulse of his native country. KATHARSIS comes to New York following the success of Franzão's breakthrough show, INVOLUNTARY EXCLUSION, presented at the The Superior Court Museum in Brasília, Brazil.
