Heróicas Eróticas en Nueva York
Zilia Sánchez first survey exhibition in the United States, with artwork spanning the 1950s to the 1990s.
The work of Cuban-born artist Zilia Sánchez is characterized by her distinctive approach to formal abstraction through the use of undulating silhouettes, muted color palettes, and a personal, sensual language. Sánchez’s exceptional formed canvases, which range in scale from the intimate to the monumental and span fifty years of artistic production, have seldom been seen outside of Puerto Rico, where she has lived and worked since 1972. Produced in conjunction with the artist’s first solo exhibition at Galerie Lelong New York, this publication focuses on Sánchez’s shaped paintings made three-dimensional through her unique method of stretching canvases over hand-molded wooden frameworks.
