CHRISTINE IACOBUZIO-DONAHUE

530 West 25th Street, New York, NY


Christine Iacobuzio-Donahue’s acrylic paintings and sculptures are profound meditations that stand at a crossroads between spirituality and science. A converted Tibetan Buddhist after a life-changing trip to Nepal, Iacobuzio Donahue has embraced the core teachings of the dharma on the nature and transcendence of dukkha, suffering. Her oeuvre conceals the subtle underpinnings of human reality; truths that we try so hard to forget and push back into the recesses of our mind: the impermanent and arbitrary nature of the universe, the chaotic topography of societal relations, the contrasts inherent to the natural world both within and surrounding us. These verities protrude uncomfortably from amalgams of richly saturated primary color, frenzied doodles, and the unassailable precision found in the geometry of cubes, spheres, rectangles, or marine fossils, of which Iacobuzio Donahue is an avid collector. Beneath the apparent simplicity and naivete of her minimalist compositions, Iacobuzio Donahue reveals the web of complexities that make up our existence. Iacobuzio Donahue has a Bachelor’s in Biology from Adelphi University and a medical degree from Boston University. A gastrointestinal pathologist, she runs a research laboratory dedicated to the evolutionary biology and genetics of pancreatic neoplasms. Iacobuzio Donahue lives and works in New York City.

Guided by my interest in science, nature, math, and Buddhism, my work aims to reflect the contrasts inherent to our experiences of the natural world both within and surrounding us; life versus death, order versus chaos, control versus randomness, organic versus manufactured. These elements are reflected in my bold abstract patterns, an infatuation with saturated color, and love of clean, minimalistic design. I cannot get through the day without laughing at least once; hence humor often finds its way into my work. I may be the only one who gets the joke, but that’s OK.
