The Hogar Collection is most pleased to announce, As Air, the latest solo exhibition of new painting and sculpture by Cecilia Biagini.  Biagini continues on a free-form journey that further contemplates the mysterious exploration of space, color, visual poetry and movement.  Like drifting networks of spider webs fluttering in the wind and awaiting their prey, her works weave a complex system, that catches the viewer in ways that reveal and reflect the ephemeral building blocks that comprise multifaceted and infinite views of the mind’s labyrinth and its connections to universal inter-relationships.  Evoking a visual sense that furthers the depth of perception into sublime models, the works skirt boundaries of the third and fourth dimensions where ideas postulate playful sensibilities of metaphysics engaging in a dialogue of complex and intricately simplified layers.  With a loose and skillful use of layered line and geometry, the multiplicity of these building blocks combine a postulated model of life as we know it to exist with the realms of our unknowing yielding an abstracted sense of mysticism.  They push at a visual essence where color and that which it hides and reveals, speaks about painting in the most basic aspects; the simple awareness of the medium and what it can do in it’s purest existence.

Cecilia Biagini was born in Buenos Aires, Argentina in 1967 and since 1998 has lived and worked in Brooklyn, NY.  She studied painting with Guillermo Kuitca in Buenos Aires and attended University for sociology.   Her artwork has been exhibited Internationally at such venues as: The Hunterdon Museum of Art in New Jersey, Ruiz Healy Art in San Antonio, Pentimenti Gallery in Philadelphia, PROA Foundation in Buenos Aires, The Bemis Center in Omaha, NE, Rupert Ravens Contemporary in Newark, The Cervantes Institute in Rome, Recoleta Cultural Center in Buenos Aires, The Museum of Fine Arts in Buenos Aires and the Museum of Modern Art in Buenos Aires among others.  Her career to this date has also included acting with major and acclaimed roles in feature length movies, television and in the most important theater houses in Argentina.
