About the artist

Cecilia Biagini was born in Buenos Aires, Argentina in 1967. She studied painting with Guillermo Kuitca in Buenos Aires and attended the University for Sociology. Her work has been exhibited internationally at The Hunterdon Museum of Art in New Jersey; Contemporary Art Museum in Baltimore, MD; Rupert Ravens Contemporary in Newark; Istituto Cervantes in Rome; C. C. Recoleta in Buenos Aires; Fundacion Proa in Buenos Aires; The MACBA in Buenos Aires; Mana Contemporary in Miami; El Museo del Barrio in New York; among others. Biagini?s works are in the permanent collections of Buenos Aires Museum of Contemporary Art, Buenos Aires, Argentina; The University of Texas, San Antonio, TX; The New York Public Library, New York, NY; The Department of Homeland Security in Washington D.C. 

In her abstract paintings and photograms, Cecilia Biagini alludes to music, improvisational dance, color synthesis, and scientific concepts such as equilibrium, oscillation, and repetition. ?In a pursuit to balance transformative symbiotic processes, sculpture and painting exchange form and color into an infinite space of obliteration and reconfiguration of their forms,? she says. Her works, which range from sweeping gestural abstractions to delicate compositions of colored squares, draw on the visual language of Minimalism and Color Field Painitng.
