Biography

Eduardo Santiere creates delicate abstract compositions on paper exclusively using graphite, colored pencil, and incisions in the work’s surface—a combined practice of marking and scratching. He is best known for using a needle to lance the paper and create linear patterns from lacerations. As a result, his works appear to be both drawings and delicate sculptural reliefs. His compositions are typically minimal and feature small recurring motifs resembling circuitry and cellular structures. Santiere, who was trained in computer science, sees his works as demonstrations of evolving networks and systems of language, urban sprawl, ideology, and biology—or “Bio-Constructions” as he describes.
