Angelina Gualdoni
Another Future Song

2018

About

This dark red, purple, blue, green, and black piece fluctuates between representational interior still-life and abstraction. The painting has a "witchy" feel, with thick, textured smoke rising from what could be an alchemist's bowl. Mesoamerican animal figurines dance on a table next to a plant. Using abstracted still life and interior motifs, Angelina Gualdoni’s paintings explore the fluidity and ephemerality of light, space, and the passage of time. Well known for her unique approach, Gualdoni begins her paintings by pouring liquid paint or dye directly onto the canvas, creating overlapping layers of capricious and unpredictable ground. Thicker daubs of paint and impasto brushwork compete with delicate poured areas, creating a vibrating tension as spaces both jump forward and recede. The subject becomes not only Gualdoni’s semi-articulated vases and windows, but the complicated play between background and foreground. The artist incorporates fragmented geometric patterns, which add a meandering structure and reference wallpaper, textiles, and early-20th century women artists such as Sonia Delaunay and Barbara Stepanova. In her recent work, Gualdoni further complicates the painting space by incorporating a fully-painted backside of the canvas as a way to create a metaphor from the seepage of paint and explore the impermeability of boundaries such as front and back, and before and after. Angelina Gualdoni received her BFA from the Maryland Institute College of Art in Baltimore, and her MFA from the University of Illinois in Chicago. Her paintings have been the subject of solo and group shows nationally and internationally at the Queens Museum, NY, St. Louis Art Museum, MO, the Museum of Contemporary Art, Chicago, IL, The Aldrich Museum, Connecticut, the Museum de Paviljoens, Netherlands, and the Neuberger Museum, Purchase, NY. Her work resides in the Saatchi Collection, as well as the MCA, Chicago, and the Nerman Museum, Kansas City. She has been the beneficiary of several grants and fellowships, including New York Foundation for the Arts (NYFA) in 2008 and 2015, Artadia, and Pollock-Krasner, and has attended residencies at MacDowell Colony, Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture, International Studio and Curatorial Program, and Chateau La Napoule. Gualdoni resides and works in Brooklyn and is a founding member of Regina Rex, an artist-run exhibition space located on the Lower East Side, NY.
