Kathryn Markel Fine Arts is pleased to present Saudade, Martina Nehrling's second solo show with the gallery. Saudade is a Portuguese term that defies direct translation, but Martina Nehrling thinks the elusiveness of the word is best wrangled by Jasmine Garsd. She describes it as "a melancholy nostalgia for something that perhaps has not even happened. It often carries an assurance that this thing you feel nostalgic for will never happen again." It's an unexpected concept to associate with Nehrling's unabashedly optimistic work characterized by highly saturated color, but in her latest work on view in Saudade she concentrates on the presence of absence.
