Artist Reception & Talk: Saturday, April 22, 5:00 – 7:00 PM | Talk at 6:00 PM
Pentimenti Gallery continues the spring season with the work of CECILIA BIAGINI.
Cecilia Biagini’s work at times refers and alludes to musical and rhythmic waves, pseudo-scientific models/diagrams and is always anchored in the purity of the medium itself. It manifests and metamorphoses a randomly controlled color synthesis that vividly harmonizes rhythm. The base curiosity remains inside an abstract model where an intuitive poetic field seeks a path of engagement and purely visual ideas can converge, convey and be defined through internalized individual truths that acknowledge the uniqueness of experience and singular consciousness.
With this exhibition, Cecilia looks to create the place where margins, theoretical defined edges or enclosures, meet, merge, and ultimately vanish into one another. The paintings, while contained on rectangular formed canvas, don’t conform to this boundary and instead thrive within their own figurative margins of flowing drawn lines, some curved and angled, that overlap, interact, and converge into multiple trajectories of all sorts of perspectives. The paint itself is layered in dreamlike fashion, creating ghostly layers of time and transformation that seamlessly carry the tune of each figure from one margin into the next. While remaining within this rhythmic flow, Cecilia’s sculptures continue to boundlessly unite, repeat, and become the path for figures of movement as a way of change.
Cecilia Biagini studied painting with Guillermo Kuitca in Buenos Aires and attended the University for sociology. Her artwork has been exhibited internationally: Mana Contemporary, Miami, FL & Jersey City, NJ; El Museo del Barrio, New York, NY; Fondo Nacional de las Artes, Buenos Aires, Argentina; The Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, TX; Contemporary Art Museum in Baltimore, MD; Rupert Ravens Contemporary in Newark; Fundacion Proa and MACBA, Buenos Aires, Argentina; among others.
