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."

About the work

Often torqued and warped, Angela de la Cruz's works function as humorous meditations upon the human body’s limitations and failures. Her canvases undergo violent interventions in the form of cuttings, deformation, etc., which thus seem to turn them into sentient beings.
