"Divine Spontaneity I and II" Pair of Acrylic and Pencils Abstracts 48"x36" each

2023

About the Item

"Divine Spontaneity I and II" 2023, 48" H x 36" W each. Price is for pair. Pair of vertical abstract paintings (diptych) consisting of acrylics, house paint, and carbon pencils on canvas by Argentine-born artist Karina Gentinetta (featured in Elle Decor, the New York Times, Traditional Home, Veranda Magazine, Luxe Interiors, and most recently in Introspective Magazine). These works are full of energy, color, and childlike innocence. They are bold and spirited and celebrate the beauty of human nature. Each stroke is a spontaneous mark on canvas that come together as a balanced composition. A vibrant movement in acrylics, house paint and pencils in hues of burnt orange, golden raw sienna, white, purple, and aubergine and deep reds or plums with carbon pencils against a neutral background. Framed in natural pine wood floater frames. PLEASE NOTE THAT PRICE IS FOR THE PAIR. Karina Gentinetta's vast and audacious canvases are inspired by her home city of New Orleans. A litigator for thirteen years, Gentinetta found herself at a crossroads after losing her family home and the majority of her possessions during Hurricane Katrina. Turning to art and design for solace, the self-taught artist was inspired to leave her law practice to pursue her creative passions in the shocking aftermath of the storm. Redolent of the shattered landscape of New Orleans in the wake of Hurricane Katrina, Gentinetta’s paintings evoke the broken frames of flooded homes and the city's devastated infrastructure. Downed telephone lines, random piles of debris and condemned buildings are all present in the thick brushstrokes and intrepid lines that mark each canvas. The artist uses materials that are purposely indicative of construction sites, including wall plaster, varnish and house paint acrylics, imbuing the works with both a subjective symbolism and forceful aesthetic. Using a monochromatic color scale, the Stark paintings juxtapose opposing sentiments including vulnerability and strength, chaos and balance. The bold, abstract compositions speak to a multiplicity of themes including grief and despair, but above all celebrate the triumph of rebirth and hope over loss and devastation. Gentinetta’s works have received national and international recognition and have been featured in such publications as The New York Times, Elle Décor, Luxe, Veranda, Traditional Home and More Magazine among others. Most recently, Gentinetta collaborated with RH Modern on a limited edition series which was successfully received and sold out. Her works can be viewed on 1stdibs online and personally at the Gallery at 200 Lex at the New York Design Center in NYC. Commissions may be requested.
