The Importance of Minimal Gestures: Florencia Walfisch opens exhibition at Gallery Molly Krom
El Dibujo Es Más Grande / The Drawing is Larger / 2010 - Embroidery and Sewing with Thread and Wool Yarn on Canvas and Fabric - 1.8 x 3 meters.

NEW YORK, NY.- Gallery Molly Krom presents The Importance of Minimal Gestures, the first solo show in the United Stated for Florencia Walfisch, an Argentine artist who lives and works in her home town, Buenos Aires. She is a "woman who writes and makes art."

As an artist, Florencia Walfisch is using textile techniques to create her paintings and drawings. As a poet, she writes about the concept of minimal gestures that make up the fabric of life itself, and this becomes the inspiration for the body of work presented in the show:

"The material instance of the world reminds me, always, of the concrete character of every subtlety, thought, emotion, interiority, and the whole spectrum of vibrations which are body. Like a tree’s roots and it's crown, or Heaven and Earth, I attempt to vertebrate myself without the rift imposed by drawing borders on that which is organic. I like to think of my work as fragments of an impossible to encompass a whole, a continuum without end or beginning. When I use a sewing machine, the gears that allow the bottom thread and the top thread to go together, without which there is no sewing, seems a permanent metaphor for a junction channel. When by hand, as the needle dives and goes through the fabric only to arise again and again, I tend to think about the infinity of minimal gestures, constant and almost always invisible, that make possible the entirety of life."

The textile paintings created and selected for this exhibit are made with thread and wool on canvas and fabric. On some of them, distinct anatomical forms can be found, but most are more about physiology, rather than anatomy. The passage of air, the opening of the alveoli, the rush of blood and contractions of the heart happen simultaneously at the "crown" and the "roots", in Heaven and on Earth.

Florencia Walfisch was born in Buenos Aires in 1970. Since 2004 she has been making visual art using textile techniques. Since 2011 she has been included in yearly Salon Nacional Textile Art exhibitions at Palais de Glacé , Palacios Nacional de las Artes.
