Mi Casa

Carlos Rolón/Dzine



Singapore— Pearl Lam Galleries is pleased to present the first ever solo exhibition in Singapore by Carlos Rolón/ Dzine who has produced a major and new installation Mi Casa (My House) that incorporates themes of domesticity, multiculturalism, pattern, and craft-making traditions. The exhibition will open at Pearl Lam Galleries on 20th January 2015, and coincides with the unveiling in Singapore of a bespoke neon sculptural work presented in collaboration by Carlos Rolón/Dzine, Pearl Lam Galleries and the Rolls-Royce Arts Initiative.

Rolón, who also goes by the name Dzine, has been recognized for his elaborately crafted paintings and ornate sculptures that come out of Kustom Kulture. His practice encompasses a range of media moving seamlessly between murals, sculpture, painting, and installation while he investigates pop culture, craft, ritual, beauty, spirituality, and identity and its relationship to art history, subculture, appropriation and the institution. His carefully crafted, hybrid works are playfully situated between the contradictory worlds of conspicuous consumption and urban artefact.
