GABY GROBO

Sensorial Sensibilities
May 19 - June 9, 2015
Reception: Thursday May 21, 2015 6-8 PM

In what she calls “imaginary landscapes,” Gaby Grobo creates bold, minimalist compositions that turn the fields and skies of the Argentine countryside into vivid patterns. Painting primarily in acrylics on canvas, the artist employs her sharp eye for color and texture to give the open spaces she depicts movement and drama, communicating nature’s power while also giving us an appreciation for its stillness. The skies in her images seem to be in turmoil, balancing an overarching darkness with hints of light and bursts of bright color. But that sense of energy and transformation is paired with a calmness that gives her images an almost spiritual aura.

A division of energy and mystery is also reflected in the importance that the line of the horizon plays in many of her works. “My current series uses the horizon to suggest the potential, vastness, silence, and poetry of these unique large spaces,” Grobo says. “The line that divides heaven and earth also divides the concrete and magical.” That mixture of the concrete and the magical is what gives her work its unique presence.
