Katerina Lanfranco: Mystic Geometry at Nancy Hoffman Gallery
Katerina Lanfranco: Mystic Geometry
12.14.17 – 1.20.18
Nancy Hoffman Gallery
520 W 27th St. New York, NY 10001
Mystic Geometry is Katerina Lanfranco’s fourth solo exhibition at the Nancy Hoffman Gallery, and her first exploring the narrative and symbolic content of abstraction through geometry derived from nature, science, and spirituality.
Lanfranco appropriates the cool visual vocabulary of analytical abstraction and charges it with feminine energy through her use of color and complex compositional strategies that champion the decorative by including techniques once relegated to the “female” world of craft.
The artist creates an immersive installation with large-scale paintings that layer historical references and deep illusionistic landscape space, and small-scale artworks with detailed, highly textured surfaces. Cross-cultural research and intuition drive Lanfranco’s curiosity to discover forms that evoke spiritual resonance in the tradition of Theosophist artists Hilma af Klint, František Kupka, and Wassily Kandinsky.
The exhibition opens on December 14, 2017 and continues through January 20, 2018.
