Angela de la Cruz: Transfer
London, 30 March – 30 April 2011
Lisson Gallery is pleased to announce an exhibition of new work by Angela de la Cruz. Fiercely emotive, de la Cruz’s work examines the language of painting and sculpture, challenging the established norms and testing the boundaries of both mediums.
Says Lisson Gallery's Curatorial Director Greg Hilty, “De la Cruz’s fierce independence of vision and confidence with the physical matter of her work marks her out as one of the truly unique artistic voices of her generation.”
De la Cruz’s work is both unapologetically raw and darkly humorous, possessing a physicality that is as much influenced by the work of comics such as Jacques Tati, Charlie Chaplin and Harold Lloyd as it is by the visceral nature of Goya’s painting. Through violent interventions she anthropomorphises her work, manipulating and deconstructing her canvases and materials so that they appear broken, crumpled and collapsed. Twisted and deflated, her works lie as crushed or crumpled bodies on the gallery floor and wall.
