PHILADELPHIA, PA.- Pentimenti Gallery announces Structure and Freedom, a solo show by Cecilia Biagini. 

Cecilia Biagini paints to open up spaces and build paths that cross dimensions until new perspectives emerge.  Conjuring the ludic with pure geometry in space, Biagini's work at times refers and alludes to musical and rhythmic waves, pseudo-scientific models/diagrams and is always anchored in the purity of the medium itself. It manifests and metamorphoses a randomly controlled color synthesis that vividly harmonizes rhythm. The base curiosity remains inside an abstract model where an intuitive poetic field seeks a path of engagement and purely visual ideas can converge, convey and be defined through internalized individual truths that acknowledge the uniqueness of experience and singular consciousness.
Her sculptures are assemblages of wooden pieces, alternating between found objects from hardware stores such as shims and moldings or custom-cut blocks.  These works are very precise expressions of the aesthetic language she has crafted over her career.   She has formulated a type of architectural maquette, offering an aerial-view of a futuristic urban complex with interlaced strokes of piquant color. The narrative is then tempered by the organic quality of the visible wood grain.  The merging of grids combine into what could be maps of a metropolis or skyscrapers' facades. Both set against natural colored backgrounds create a lightness unique to themselves, revealing an investigation of volume and negative spaces by the artist. 
Cecilia Biagini was born in Buenos Aires, Argentina. She studied painting with Guillermo Kuitca in Buenos Aires and attended the University for sociology. Her artwork has been exhibited internationally: The Hunterdon Museum of Art in New Jersey; Contemporary Art Museum in Baltimore, MD; Rupert Ravens Contemporary in Newark; Istituto Cervantes in Rome; C. C. Recoleta in Buenos Aires; Fundacion Proa in Buenos Aires; The MACBA in Buenos Aires; among others. Biagini's works are in the permanent collections of Buenos Aires Museum of Contemporary Art, Buenos Aires, Argentina; The University of Texas, San Antonio, TX; The New York Public Library, New York, NY; The Department of Homeland Security in Washington D.C.; in private and corporate collections.
