Central Station
Central Station is a profoundly moving tale of the human spirit, featuring an unforgettable lead performance by Fernanda Montenegro. Inside Rio de Janeiro’s bustling Central Station, two very unlikely souls are about to become inextricably linked. When a young boy (Vinicius de Oliveira) witnesses his mother’s accidental death, a lonely retired school teacher reluctantly takes the child under her wing. Although initially distrustful of each other, the two form an uncommon bond as they venture from the bustling city to Brazil’s barren and remote northeast region in search of the boy’s father. Together, the two embark on a journey of the heart that restores the woman’s spirit and teaches the child precious life lessons.

Geometry in Motion
Botelho has created a new series inspired by Copacabana in her hometown of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil and her new home in Miami. In this series, she introduces imagery and circular shapes, an influence of the Art Deco architecture that abounds in her new city. Using a monotyping technique influenced by one of her mentors, Brazilian artist Beatriz Milhazes, Botelho draws with charcoal and creates collages by transferring geometric shapes painted on plastic sheets to the canvas. As a result of this technique, shapes are not exact as they get lost during the transfer process. By extracting the brush from the painting process she incorporates the element of chance.

Botelho’s interest in collage carries over to the installation, Art Around the Corner. In this installation, Botelho uses postcards that she has collected over the last 10 years from her time in Boston, New York and Miami to create a collage mimicking the patterns created in her paintings.
