Patricia Queiruga - Agora Gallery
Through October 30, 2018 - New York

Collective Exhibition With an ever-changing combination of paints, Patricia Queiruga builds work that ranges from abstract to figurative, but remains reliably organic. In each of the artist's works, paint builds, drizzles, and drips into shape. The movement of the material on the canvas and the artist's action in making the work is always visible. In some works vibrant streaks of red or yellow burst through the composition. Inspired by music, Queiruga makes energetic choices in acrylic, oil, and mixed media, translating the exciting notes into a visual practice. Sharply cutting across one another or carefully blended together in the background, the colors and treatments combine with Queiruga's impulsive choices to form artworks full of emotion and spontaneity. Working freely, Queiruga explores each avenue of interest, whether an elephant or an abstract concept, with versatility and an expressionistic perspective. Born in the city of Córdoba, Patricia Queiruga lives and works in Argentina.

Since then, Porter has worked in a variety of media including painting, drawing, printmaking, photography, assemblages, video, installation and, more recently, theater. Porter's art has been exhibited in more than 35 countries in over 450 group shows, and is a part of public and private collections including El Museo del Barrio. Her work has been reviewed in Artforum, Art in America, and Sculpture Magazine, among other publications. In 2013, the Fundación Patricia Phelps de Cisneros published the book Liliana Porter in Conversation with Inés Katzenstein as part of the Conversaciones/Conversations series. Galleries in Europe, Latin America and the United States represent the artist.
