Artemisa Gallery is pleased to announce Crossing Lines, an online solo show by Cecilia Biagini.
Working freely within geometry, Argentine artist Cecilia Biagini explores the boundaries set
between space and media, traditions and geography in this recent body of work made in her
East New York studio.
Though abstract, Biagini’s paintings set a space for visual action. The interaction between
curved lines and blocks of color create shapes and give them density. However paradoxically,
these same processes dismantle the shapes in the canvases rendering them shapeless and
The artist’s relieves incorporate this playful artistic process as well. These are constituted by a
group of straight, monochrome, rectangular blocks. What at first sight appears as a unity or a
unified composition, is actually created by independent shapes on the wall.
While working in New York, Biagini recovers the rich traditions of Latin American abstraction
where women artists have been active participants since the 1930s such as Argentine artists
Yente and Lidy Prati. This recent body of work crosses lines between media, artistic traditions
Crossing Lines will be available online and by appointment from August 1st, 2018 until September 4th, 2018
