Leah Guadagnoli: I Just Want to See You Underwater
VICTORI + MO is pleased to present I Just Want to See You Underwater, an exhibition of new works from Brooklyn-based artist Leah Guadagnoli. The exhibition, which marks Guadagnoli’s solo debut with the gallery, will open on June 8 and will remain on view through July 22, 2018. The show will feature a series of high-spirited abstractions, and sculptures, which reference her custom shaped canvases.
Guadagnoli’s three-dimensional wall-based constructions are firmly rooted within the historical context of geometric design through disparate influences as Egyptian hieroglyphics, Islamic and Gothic stained glass, Bauhaus and Swahili architecture, Art Deco and The Memphis Group.
Inspired by the patterns and surfaces which recollect the gaudy carpets, seating, and walls found in the waiting rooms and airports, casinos and movie theaters of decades past, Guadagnoli’s work suggests a deliberately ambiguous nostalgia—some works may recall the ’80s and ’90s, others the ’50s and ’60s. The past and present are combined and act as reminders of what we were, who we are, and who we might become.
