Exhibition Spotlight: Intuition And Fantasy In Maria Gimenez' Paintings

WHO: Maria Gimenez

WHAT: Lissi and the Rabbit, Amplitude 14/8, curated by Karline Moeller

WHEN: Opening night: Tuesday February 8th, 6-8PM. By appointment February 9th - March 6th. Please contact Karline Moeller at or 9178215847.

15 Wooster Street, New York, NY 10013.

WHY: Textural and with a gritty sensuality, Maria Gimenez' work ranges from rough brush strokes to paint a woman's body to the more defined lines of a small animal. They have a fascinating pull to them, while also giving the viewer a keen sense of curiosity.

Maria Gimenez' images have a marked propensity for the perverse. She manages to seduce her viewer with intuitive, conceptual work that unveils a witty and inspired talent. On first consideration, her paintings evoke a rough and expressive tenor and although the titles of Gimenez's work pare lighthearted and even comical, the work itself is not.
