Fredericks & Freiser is pleased to announce an exhibition of new paintings by Cristina de Miguel for the artist’s fourth solo exhibition with the Gallery. The Spanish-born artist is part of a generation of figurative neo-expressionists who harness both the immediate viscerality and the emotive unpredictability of the gesture to query the formal status of painting today.

De Miguel’s energetic and colorful large-scale compositions engage painterly tensions to experiment with materiality and academic conventions. Imagined scenes that take color and form as the artist paints de Miguel’s work is devoted to the clash of opposites. There is no point perspective to organize space and figures but errant linear marks hint at certain dimensionalities. Rendered faces exist alongside deconstructed faces and fragmented bodies are depicted in various states of aggressive movement. At once humorous and dark the artist’s scenes are governed by a mysterious logic.
