About

"Nuit", 2021, 72" x 48". A bold abstract all black painting consisting of layered acrylic and plaster 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). This work is defined by expressive movement created by layering paint and acrylic and then using brush strokes and a palette knife to create definition and texture. By layering raw umber under the black acrylic, Gentinetta creates depth by revealing some of the undertones through the all-black composition. The result is a raw but deep monochromatic work that is full of energy and drama. Measures: 6 ft x 4 ft, vertical orientation. Please note that this work can also be hung horizontally. Framed in an all black wood floater frame. 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, More Magazine and most recently, 1stdibs' Introspective Magazine. Her works can be viewed on 1stdibs online and personally at the Gallery at 200 Lexington Ave. at the New York Design Center. Commissions may be requested.
