About

"Layers of Time", 2020, 48" x 72" acrylic, pencils and oil pastels on canvas by Argentine born artist Karina Gentinetta (featured in Elle Decor, the New York Times, Traditional Home, Veranda Magazine and Luxe Magazine). This work represents a departure of Ms. Gentinetta's more known black and white abstracts. A mixture between artistic compositions and quirky mathematical drawings, this painting speaks of the passage of time from childhood to adulthood as seen through the semi-erased and layered marks on a blackboard-like background. The painting further represents life as a purposeful contrast between the very "fluid" and "in-the-moment" state of mind that we may be drawn to in life and the rational and predictable lives that some of us choose to pursue by either force or practicality. The compositions are childlike but disciplined, and a complete juxtaposition between intellectual pursuits and creativity. Hence, some "logical" mathematical figures and equations are contrasted by the gibberish scribbles and even a few scratches reveling the white plaster underneath. Painted utilizing white pencils, oil pastels and acrylic over a plaster textured black painted background. Measures: 4 ft x 6 ft, horizontal orientation. Very bold and dramatic and raw in its texture. Professionally framed in a black wood floating frame. Please note, this painting is on loan but available for immediate purchase and can viewed at the new luxury apartment building of 111 Murray Street in Manhattan. Please contact us or 1stdibs to make viewing arrangements. 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 1stdibs Gallery n NYC. Commissions may be requested.
