Exodus • 2014
Maria Lago Studio • 502 Main Street
The Exodus sculptures are concerned with the experience of higher awareness and spiritual revelation that results from the movement of peoples throughout the world. These works deal with persecution and human rights violations that create refugees in underdeveloped countries as well as legal and illegal immigrants moving in search of work, food and shelter in developed countries.
A long-time New York resident, Maria Largo is originally from Asturias, in Northern Spain. She studied Fine Art at the University Complutense of Madrid and at the Circulo de Bellas Artes of Madrid. In New York she studied at Parsons School of Art.
