Nohra Haime Gallery, New York. Yau, John. [Sutil, Francisca, b. 1952]  
Francisca Sutil: Spaces. October 6-November 6, 1999. Works on Canvas; Works on Paper.

Publisher: N.Y., Nohra Haime Gallery, 1999.
[19] p., 12 color reproductions; 27 cm. Two-part exhibition. Part one, works on canvas, was held at the Nohra Haime Gallery; the second, works on paper, at Grant Selwyn Fine Art. With a critical essay by John Yau. "Done on raw, earth-colored linen, 'Spaces' consists of vertical bands of color which are not only abutted together, but seem to overlap, as well as subtly interact. The narrow bands (or strips) of glowing color remind one of semi-transparent ribbons separating one room (or realm) from another. Stopped well short of the painting's top and bottom edge, the narrow bands manage to assert their independence, even as they acknowledge their dependence on the surface. ...As with 'Cerebrations', all the 'Spaces' are palimpsests." Color pictorial paper covers; VG. Stock#37768.

Appr.: | AUD 23.27 CAD 23.03 EUR 15.56 GBP 13.21 JPY 1,750.00 MXN 291.67 ZAR 246.48
