Karina Gentinetta
Original Prototype for "Hidden Figures No. 7" Painting, 4 ft. x 5 ft.

2019

About

Due to the high demand and inquiries regarding "Hidden Figures No. 7", 2019, 72" x 108" acrylic, pencils and oil pastels on canvas by Argentine born artist Karina Gentinetta (featured in Elle Decor, the New York Times, Traditional Home and 2017 Luxe Magazine), Ms. Gentinetta decided to make available the original prototype from which the larger painting was based. This prototype in smaller in scale at 48" x 60" but it is the original work that inspired the larger scaled version. This work is departure of Ms. Gentinetta's more known black and white abstract. A mixture between artistic compositions and quirky mathematical drawings, this painting speaks of 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, you see as "hidden figures" in this work, some "logical" mathematical figures and equations contrasted by the gibberish scribbles. Painted in neutral hues of raw umber, black, creams, and browns. Measures: 4ft x 5 ft, horizontal orientation. Professionally framed in a gold or black floating frame. This painting is currently being shipped to the new 1stdibs Gallery at the Terminal Warehouse Building in NYC and should arrive and be on display on or before May 16, 2019. 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.
