Alejandro Corujeira, Lucia Pizzani: Artissima Art Fair, Turin
We are delighted to announce that from the 2-4 November we are off to Turin to participate in Artissima - Italy’s most important contemporary art fair now in its twenty-fourth year at the Oval Pavilion. Our booth will include an outstanding selection of works by Alejandro Corujeira and Lucia Pizzani.
Alejandro currently has a solo exhibition within the 33rd São Paulo Biennial and, earlier this year, presented a beautiful show - Murmurs of Light – at our London gallery. He is a rising heavyweight in Latin American abstractionism, whose work involves a complex and delicate process engaging with both poetry and pure painting. Through his layers of almost transparent paint, light fills the canvas giving Alejandro’s geometric forms and colours a weightless nature. Strongly influenced by the trailblazing Uruguayan artist, Joaquin Torres-Garcia, Alejandro’s work is grounded in the School of the South and the radical Geometric Abstraction of Latin America. His work is featured in the collections of The Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofía in Madrid, The Museo de Arte Contemporáneo in Panama, The Blanton Museum of Art in Texas and The Patricia Phelps de Cisneros Collection.
Born in Caracas and having studied both Conservation Biology and Fine Arts, Lucía’s work explores the relationship between the natural world and the human body. For Artissima she is exhibiting a selection of terracotta sculptures and a photographic diptych. Lucía’s sculptural series, Límbica, are meticulous, organic forms that twist, fold and coil referencing the human body and the texture of skin. The diptych, titled Pieles, reveals two stunning images of the Límbica sculptures adjacent to Lucia’s body, resulting in a compelling juxtaposition between materiality and the human body. Lucía’s sculptures have been acquired by important public and private collection such as the Colección Cisneros and Colección Juan Yarur, among others.
We very much look forward to seeing you in Turin!
