New abstract works by Northern California based artist consisting of multiple layers of delicately rendered biomorphic patterns layered between coats of resin.
George Billis Gallery is pleased to present Suspended, the gallery's first solo exhibition by Northern California artist Kim Squaglia. The exhibition runs from June 1st to July 6th with an artist reception on June 1st from 5-8pm.
Squaglia's paintings consist of multiple layers of delicately rendered biomorphic patterns layered between coats of resin. She builds on each surface with areas of saturated fields and lines of color. The imagery references the forms and space of biology, now transformed into delicate web-like trendrils within a murky atmosphere. The overall effect is the impression of ambiguous yet effective spatial depth and movement.
Kim Squaglia received her MFA in paintings from The University of Texas San Antonio in 2000. She participated in an Artist in Residence program at Skowhegan School or Painting & Sculpture, ME. She received multiple grants and awards including the International Study Abroad to Berlin, Travel Grant, and The ArtPace Foundation travel grant. Some of her collectors include Neiman Marcus, Microsoft, Captial One Bank and the U.S. State Department.
