Artist Roberta Caviglia lets her creative instincts run wild in her abstract works. Characterized by a free-flowing aesthetic, her paintings deconstruct the material world, stripping it of its rigid specifications. In each work, a cluster of tight forms breaks up the space, revealing an intricate balance between the rooted and the unbound. In Bloom, we see watered down red and blue patches of color with thin, finite structures in the foreground. Together, these forms create contrast in the frame as the viewer tries to make sense of their symbiotic relationship. In Flying, vibrant, flowing swirls of deep red paint disrupt the hazy, muted background, hinting at some order or purpose within the work.
As a mother of four, including triplets, Caviglia often finds herself torn between the loose nature of abstraction and the comfort of predictable, geometric patterns. While embracing chaos, she longs for order and clarity in her life and her work, heeding these different perspectives simultaneously. Her liquid landscapes reveal an internal battle between the lure of pure creative expression and the relief of finite possibilities.
