Sicardi | Ayers | Bacino is pleased to present new work by Argentine artist Graciela Hasper. The exhibition will feature five new acrylic paintings on canvas, as well as a large-scale wall mural. In the 1990s, Hasper was a leading figure in the Rojas Group, a group of artists exploring geometric abstraction in Buenos Aires. In 2000, she completed her first residency in the United States, at Apex Art in New York with a Fulbright Grant, and in 2002 she participated in the Chinati Foundation residency in Marfa, Texas. As art historian and curator Roberto Amigo notes, "Graciela Hasper's painting can be appreciated as paradoxes: their objective form, which continues the tradition of a chromatic and playful abstraction, is also emotional. Her painting remains free of all imitation and, at the same time, within the ribbons, circles and squares, the pure, saturated and vibrant colors share material without mixing but merely by modifying the tone or value." Hasper has been commissioned to create large-scale mural projects for sites including Miami’s Faena Forum, designed by Rem Koolhaas of OMA, and recently Puerto Madero in Buenos Aires. Her work is included in the permanent collections of The Bruce and Diane Halle Collection, Scottsdale, AZ, Patricia Phelps de Cisneros Collection, New York, NY, Faena Collection, Buenos Aires, Argentina, Jorge Perez Collection, Miami, FL, Museo Arte Contemporáneo de Buenos Aires, Buenos Aires, Argentina, Museo de Arte Contemporáneo, Madrid, Spain, Museo de Arte Latinoamericano de Buenos Aires (MALBA), Buenos Aires, Argentina, Museo de Arte Moderno de Buenos Aires, Argentina, Museo Nacional de Bellas Artes, Argentina, The Museum of Fine Arts, Houston (MFAH), Houston, TX, and the Philadelphia Museum of Art, Philadelphia, PA.
