About

Iva Gueorguieva’s works range from intricate ink and watercolor compositions to heavily collaged surfaces where the image is constructed from fragments of paper and muslin. The former reveal her attention and interest in narrative and the figure. There are legible characters and clear references to landscapes. In the case of the latter, she abandons the confines of the traditional rectangle and the figure becomes the space. The glowing light of the papers is undone and sacrificed in order to explore the sculptural possibilities of paper. The Man series, which began with Crooked Man, was inspired by H.C. Westermann’s Coffin for a Crooked Man, which left a profound impact on Gueorguieva’s imagination. The constructing of a flat man out of scraps of paper and muslin compelled her to explore the possibility of the shape being expressive of the bodily gesture. It is the tension between physical space and illusionistic space that Gueorguieva explores in her drawings which in many ways defines the negotiations and explorations underway in both her paintings and sculptures. Iva Gueorguieva was born in Bulgaria and currently resides in Los Angeles. She received an MFA from the Tyler School of Art in Philadelphia in 2000. Recent solo shows include Ameringer/McEnery/Yohe; ACME, CA; Susanne Vielmetter Los Angeles Projects, CA; Frederic Snitzer, FL; Galerie Stefan Roepke, Cologne, Germany; Luther W. Brady Art Gallery, DC; Bravin Lee Programs, NY; Samson Projects, MA; Stichting Outline, Amsterdam, Netherlands; and Pomona Museum of Art, CA. Her work is included in many public and private collections including the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, CA; the Minneapolis Institute of Art, MN; The Museum of Contemporary Art, CA; University Art Museum California State University Long Beach, CA; Art, Design and Architecture Museum at UC Santa Barbara, Santa Barbara, CA; and the Pomona College Musuem of Art, Claremont, CA.
