BIOGRAPHY

Cecilia Biagini studied painting with Guillermo Kuitca in Buenos Aires and attended the sociology university. Biagini received the Photography Critics Award from the Center for Art and Communication in 1989 and received the Kuitca Scholarship in 1994, and then again in 1997, when her work was shortlisted for the Braque Award and the Gunther Award. In 1998 he moved to New York, where he co-founded the exhibition space, The Hogar Collection, in Brooklyn. Inspired by the traditions of Latin American abstraction, Cecilia Biagini makes paintings, mobiles, frames and reliefs that flow seamlessly from medium to medium. Using a daring sense of color, line, depth and abstraction, the various works found common ground in their composition and playfulness. Evoking ideas from physics, the geometric shapes in his work are organized in a way that shows movement and animation. "Conjuring playfulness with pure geometry in space, my work sometimes refers to and alludes to musical and rhythmic waves, pseudoscientific models / diagrams, and is always anchored in the purity of the medium itself." - Cecilia Biagini Her work is included in many collections, including the University of Texas at San Antonio, San Antonio, TX; The New York Public Library, New York; Collection of the MACBA Museum, Buenos Aires; Ministry of Education of the Argentine Nation; and the Department of Homeland Security in Washington D.C. Additionally, his artwork has been exhibited in notable museums, including MoMA PS 1, New York, NY; The Cervantes Institute in Rome, Italy and in Buenos Aires, Argentina; Recoleta Cultural Center, Buenos Aires, Argentina; The Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, TX; PROA Foundation, Buenos Aires, Argentina; and the Museum of Modern Art, Buenos Aires, Argentina.
