About

Artist Angelica Bergamini expressly created the "Cosmos" series for Ground Floor Gallery's fundraising initiative, "Sugar is Sweet:" an affordable art sale for hurricane relief in the Caribbean held in February 2018. The works that did not sell are now exclusively available right here on 1st Dibs. Her "Cosmos" series was an experiment in scale (smaller than her usual body of work) and materials. Bergamini creates these miniature yet robust collages by assembling scraps of older, neglected work in her studio. Instead of throwing out various types of paper ranging from monoprints to photographic paper and older paintings, she elegantly recasts them into these "Cosmos" and plays with the surfaces to create more character and texture. Her "Cosmos" also allow the artist to make her artwork more accessible for smaller budgets or spaces! We hope you enjoy. -------------- Angelica Bergamini is an Italian born – New York-based artist. She spends long periods of time in Spain at the Facultad de Bellas Artes of Granada and the Museo National Centro de Arte Reina Sofia in Madrid and holds a degree from the Accademia di Belle Arti of Florence (Italy). Bergamini’s research explores the meaning of colors in an open dialogue with human emotions and natural shapes, while her experimental approach manifests through different mediums: from painting and paper-cuts assemblages to video and sculptural installations. Her works have been presented internationally as part of collective shows in New York (Tanja Grunert; White Box; BRIC Arts Media; Photo New York), London (Chelsea space), Paris (Galerie Arnaud Lefebvre), Stockholm (Färgfabriken) and in Hong Kong (Kwai Fung Hin Art Gallery). And part of private collections in USA, Europe, China, and Israel. ARTIST STATEMENT: Interested in what is beyond the conscious mind, I use my artistic research as a free-form exploration of my unconscious and as a therapeutic form of self-expression. Inspired by the process of individuation described by Carl Jung, I try to articulate a study of my inner world and my identity in flux while exploring the symbolism of colors and the power of breath. I do not study the world but my experience of it, that’s why I see my work as visual poetry because as poetry begins with feelings not ideas. Ultimately I perceive the distance between the work of art and the viewer as a transitional space of recognition and emotion. Inviting the spectator to experience the work away from an analytic mindset, I wish to create that place in which is possible to pause and surrender into the inner meaning of color, shape, and sound. I use photography and video continually probing the boundary between abstraction and figuration, developing a personal vocabulary in which painting, video, and sculpture coalesce in the creation of works rooted in the tactile quality of the material.
