Matilde Alessandra
Untitled #44

2016

About

Matilde Alessandra’s “Untitled #44” is a part of this artist’s ongoing subtly dramatic series of non-objective monochromatic ink on paper drawings. Here she explores the tension of light and dark, and between surface and receding depth using precise, repetitive cross-hatching to build texture and intensity. Known for her minimalist light sculptures, Alessandra has elegantly translated the sophistication of her luminous three-dimensional works into a two-dimensional medium. In “Untitled #44” the artist builds intensity from the perimeter of the paper, which fades to white in a nebulous area at the center of the work. This unframed work is 22 x 30 inches on Bristol board. Born in Venice, Italy, Alessandra studied at the Academy of Fine Arts (Venice, Italy). While she began her career in London working as interior and display designer, her artistic career took off in New York in the late 1990s. She started working with light, pairing fluorescent tubes with painted canvasses and plexiglas boxes. Since then she has built a reputation both as artist and designer, developing a distinctive and communicative style recognizable in all of her work. Her artistic output spans luminous sculptures, site specific installations and ink drawings. Her work has been exhibited across Europe and the United States. Notable recent exhibitions include the 55th Venice Biennale, and Leila Heller Gallery in New York City. She lives and works in New York City.
