The Hogar Collection is pleased to announce, “Requests for Expansion”, the upcoming exhibition by an amazing emerging forerunner of contemporary abstraction, Cecilia Biagini. In her second solo exhibition at the gallery she will present powerful new abstract paintings, sculpture and photograms that visually and seamlessly traverse between their materials and mediums. Exploring and celebrating color, movement, poetry, minimalism and abstraction her works are like well-practiced improvisational dances that contemplate thoughtful intuition. Embracing it’s place in history and the unknowing of the future, her work oscillates in a space where it simultaneously embraces an “intellectual” and “non-intellectual” understanding of the purely abstract. Primarily working with variations of line, her diverse array of work weaves webs of layers that intricately hide and camouflage into each other. Layers upon layers of color and line build, producing an effect that gives an incredible sense of depth and focal perception; similarly to that of a thick and colorful fog.

Cecilia Biagini was born in Buenos Aires, Argentina in 1967 and since 1998 has lived and worked in Brooklyn, NY. She is mainly a self-taught artist who also studied under the direction of Guillermo Kuitca in Buenos Aires. Her artwork has been exhibited Internationally at such venues as: The Hunterdon Museum of Art, NJ, PROA Foundation, Buenos Aires, The Bemis Center, NE, Recoleta Cultural Center, The Museum of Fine Arts, 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 Buenos Aires.
