Jennifer Guidi: Heliocentric

Regular price Regular price $50

This book was published on the occasion of Jennifer Guidi: Heliocentric at Gagosian, Hong Kong, the artist’s first solo exhibition in Asia. It focuses on Guidi’s “sand paintings,” in which the artist mixes oil paint with sand to create surfaces of color and texture, evoking the traditions of landscape and naturalist painting. Accomplished by applying a thick layer of sand to the painted ground and then making precise marks while the sand is still wet, the paintings’ luminous qualities and their textured relief register and generate minute shifts in perception, creating their own sense of ambient light. The fourteen paintings that were shown in the exhibition, including Guidi’s first triangular-shaped canvases, are illustrated in the catalogue. A text by Stuart Krimko investigates the meditative and psychological aspects of Guidi’s swirling, mandala-like compositions.
