Known for her flat, small-scale paintings, Varda Caivano works within an aesthetic of restraint, combining formal mastery with an openness to the unexpected. Mostly abstract with the occasional evocation of a landscape, Caivano’s works embody the artist’s ambivalence about the notion of resolution. As such, her paintings share a fragile quality elicited through her combinations of color and the thinness of the paint, which Caivano achieves in some instances by allowing the canvas to show through.
