Virginia Jaramillo @ Hales London

20 January 2017 - 4 March 2017

Virginia Jaramillo’s exhibition Where the Heavens Touch the Earth focuses on works created in New York between the early 1970s and the end of the decade, bringing together a selection of large-scale canvases and the Visual Theorems, a series of works made from natural linen fibres and earth pigments, embarked on in 1979. Crossing boundaries between traditionally separate categories—painting and drawing, canvas and paper—the artworks on display are united by an ongoing conceptual mission and formal echoes in their underlying geometry, as well as the tangible materiality of their layered compositions. Straight lines, intersecting arcs and blocked out forms, traced with mathematical precision, organise fields of deep colour. The resulting visual, concrete forms reflect and embody these processes by which we seek to organise our sensory experiences of space.
