Elisa Sighicelli's new photographs on satin are showing in a joint exhibition hosted by Andrew Kreps Gallery, Bortolami Gallery, and kaufmann repetto in New York.
These works are heavily influenced by Carla Accardi's sicofoil paintings from the late 1960s and early 1970s. Both artists push the boundaries of their respective mediums, manipulating light and space to create abstract images that hover between the illusory and material.
The strict formal qualities of these works by Elisa Sighicelli firmly roots them within a conceptual framework, but their playfulness and startling beauty is magical.
