Biography

The work of Ángela (1990, Argentina) observes the parallel border between nature and culture, the animal as a precondition for the human, and the zone of indistinctness between impulses and the way they are represented.

A predominant technical aptitude opened the way to the visual grand tenor style that characterizes her painting, idiosyncratically defined by the artist herself as “grotesque-passional baroqueism.” In addition to these complex and excessive figurations, which can be understood as a set of links between pictorial intertextualities, sociopolitical allegories, and private evocations, there are also forays into the fields of sculpture, installation, and textile art.

Her fascination with eroticism and suggestion has necessarily translated into a mandate to physically engage the viewer, whether through the deployment of immersive systems tending towards excess or the minimal delicacy of a stroke. In this sense, her body of work aims to create intimate spaces of sensual interaction.

The representational rigor that characterizes her work is evidenced in scenes of dramatic interaction between the animal and plant realms, where the imprecise relationship between wakefulness and sleep finds a parallel in the dynamics between social order and violence. Just as the figure of the hunter in the wilderness, clad in the skins of the creatures it has slain, liminally inhabits the border between two worlds, Ángela’s work describes the unbearable balance between the obscene transgression history written by humanity and the eternal harmonies of what lies beyond it.
