Angela de la Cruz
Spanish, b. 1965
Follow

Angela de la Cruz confronts the traditional boundaries of sculpture and painting, subjecting her works to violent interventions before they arrive at their finished state. In 1996, she first cut a painting from its stretcher and hung it in a corner (titled Ashamed) , where it assumed the qualities of an object while retaining the characteristics of a painting. Her works on canvas and aluminum appear fallen, gutted, crumpled, or collapsed, removed from what she terms painting's "grandiosity."
