Artemisa Gallery is pleased to announce a solo show of paintings by Argentine artist Rebeca Mendoza.
Rebeca Mendoza is an artist solely exploring abstraction, the power of colors, and her experience of everyday life. In each painting, brushstrokes of sensuous movement and geometric form combine to become layered abstractions of the artist’s memories and daily experience.
Executed in oil, Mendoza’s paintings are distinguished by a sense of delicate intensity. The artist sets out to entice a direct dialogue with her audience only to let personal emotion arising from the work lead her mark making, until each different situation becomes harmonious to complete the whole.
Rebeca Mendoza (B.1967) currently lives and works in Buenos Aires. At the age of 15, she entered the Regina Paccis School of Fine Arts, and in 1992 she was granted her degree of Professor of Painting after completing her formal academic education in the Prilidiano Pueyrredón National School of Fine Arts. Since finishing her formal training as a painter, Mendoza has continued her practice while establishing herself as a teacher within her own studio in Buenos Aires. In 1990 Mendoza opened her own studio in Buenos Aires. In 1994 Mendoza worked in New York, opening her own studio on the Lower East Side before returning to Buenos Aires in 2000. Mendoza has been widely exhibited across the United States and Argentina, and her work is part of private collections in Argentina, Canada, United States, Switzerland, France, Spain, Peru, Puerto Rico, and Chile.
