NATALIA G A V I R I A

530 West 25th Street, New York, NY


Artist Natalia Gaviria has created an idiosyncratic aesthetic through experimentation with color and material. She utilizes a variety of mediums including plaster, acrylic, and resin to create canvases that display a distinctive interest in texture and relief. She employs thick applications of paint—which she allows to splatter, drip, or organically blend—to create vigorous compositions. Her rich color palette, inspired by natural and urban landscapes, enhances the structure and materiality of the canvas. Though the resulting paintings seem spontaneous, Gaviria follows a precise process. She begins by studying her canvas, deciding the primary geometric figure on which to base her composition. She works around these shapes, playing with consistency through both additive and subtractive techniques. Movement is critical to her practice. She paints in gestural sequences that are sometimes intuitive and other times controlled by a specified directive. An exaltation of the senses, her paintings are her way of communicating. She considers each canvas an extension of her being and, through her oeuvre, shares her singular vision of the world.

Experimenting with different materials allows me to create a unique and personal aesthetic. I express my ideas onto my canvas through the use of abstraction combined with distinct, geometric parameters, the use of texture, and relief. I have painted for the entirety of my life as it is my essence, my way of communicating, and my most genuine form of being. Through combining a variety of colors, shapes, textures, and movements, I share my vision of the world and my surroundings. My artistic process begins first by studying my canvas and then I decide on the main geometric figure that is going to frame my composition. I then work around these shapes by adding areas of texture that create a sequence of movements. At times, my process can be random where I let myself go, or it can be completely controlled with a specific directive. After this, I decide on my main color palette which is connected directly with the structure I created, mostly inspired by my natural and urban landscapes.
