Artwork Description

THREE RACES makes part of a larger series 'Treasure of Bachué’, which focuses on paintings exploring the feminine underworld.

Inspired by mythical tales from South America, the artist unfolds a narrative in which the strengths, dreams and fragility of the Land of Bachué are revealed. Bachué is a goddess, who according to the Muiscas (Indigenous people from the Andean highlands) is the mother of humanity, a source of life and her treasure remains hidden in sacred mountains and beneath the feminine underworld.

Most of the pieces presented in this series portray women and natural forms going through an experience of transformation, representing the different aspects of a land that is woven, where the tropical rain forests are embodied and diversity springs out of the nests of golden women. Gailer’s compositions call upon the wild woman, her connection to the land and honour the empowerment of a new contemporary female identity.
