Problematic Palms

Problematic Palms 

Curated by Shana Nys Dambrot

November 7 - December 15, 2023

Marks Art Center, College of the Desert - Palm Desert, California

“...Francesca Bifulco works in expressive, richly detailed and intricate paintings and explosive (sometimes literally) sculptural installations, bringing all the senses and a variety of mediums to bear on her fascination with the palm trees of Southern California. With an appreciation for both poetry and spectacle, a fearlessness when it comes to collaborating with formidable found and natural materials, and an emotional patience for close attention to her subjects, Bifulco treats her palm trees as anthropomorphic portrait subjects, stand-ins for her own fraught journey to America, and as fuel for the fires of her dimensional imagination.” - Shana Nys Dambrot
