Adláteres and the Unexpected Journey: works by Carmen Chami

Through her extensive understanding of Mexican Baroque painting and figurative style, Carmen Chami (b.1974, Mexico City) creates artwork that reveals unintended journeys with travelers who are compelled to join in – whether voluntarily, out of complaisance, or necessity. Likewise, Adláteres (Minions) and the Unexpected Journey illustrates Carmen Chami’s love of compelling narratives where she provides each character a voice as she enters into their innermost world. 

En Adláteres and the Unexpected Journey  Carmen Chami (Ciudad de México, 1974) nos revela, en un estilo figurativo y lleno de entendimiento por la pintura barroca mexicana, caminos insospechados los cuales sus personajes han tenido que tomar ya sea por voluntad propia, complacencia o necesidad. Así mismo, se percibe el gusto de Carmen Chami por una fuerte narrativa en donde no solo da voz a cada personaje, sino que además se adentra en sus mundos internos.
