Sicardi Gallery opening reception: Marta Chilindron and Graciela Hasper: Dialogues
Dialogues is an exhibition of new sculptures and paintings by Marta Chilindron and Graciela Hasper that explore geometry and transparency. Chilindron's brightly colored acrylic sculptures range from 12-inch cubes to almost 6-foot high movable trapezoids and spirals. Hinged together, these works can be reconfigured into variations on each shape, creating an interactive conversation with the viewer.
Hasper's untitled acrylic paintings on canvas also take geometry as their starting point. Overlapping and repeated shapes in a palette of bold colors are layered to allow for surprising juxtapositions and vibrant relationships between forms. Hasper's paintings, like Chilindron's sculptures, are not fixed in space; they can be installed vertically or horizontally, or changed over the course of the exhibition.
