6th Street Container Gallery is currently hosting two solo exhibitions featuring artists Stephanie Cafcules and Wanda Raimundi-Ortiz. The exhibitions will be on display until December 12, coinciding with Art Basel, the famous international art show.

Cafcules presents Fluid Dynamics, her continued investigation altering synthetic materials and exploring the dynamism of painting into sculpture. In the main gallery, Raimundi-Ortiz debuts GuerillerReina, the newest installment of her “Reinas” series.

Stephanie Cafcules is influenced by art history and inspired by textures and patterns in nature. Transformation of synthetic materials either physically or chemically is a main process throughout her work. Her ‘Pour’ series focuses on poured paint as sculptural paintings and painterly sculptures.

In the most recent addition to her REINA series, chamelion interdisciplinary artist Wanda Raimundi-Ortiz assumes the persona of warrior queen GuerilleReina, interrogating notions of power, authority, and honor.
