ABOUT THE ARTIST
Incorporating elements of sculpture, painting, graphic design, and architecture, Leah Guadagnoli’s whimsical, idiosyncratic works defy easy classification. The artist’s work expands on the Pop tradition by making use of readymade imagery and quotidian materials. Often drawing on the aesthetics of her Midwestern upbringing, the artist appropriates designs and patterns from the 80s’ and 90s’ -- often considered kitschy -- presenting them in fresh and dynamic ways. Guadagnoli’s creations are inherently accessible; they reference the “outdated yet irresistible aesthetic” of public spaces such as waiting rooms, movie theatres, bus seats, and casinos. A clear aesthetic descendant of Ruth Root and the Memphis Group, Guadagnoli reinterprets this imagery through a lens that is both nostalgic and forward-looking. Her work strikes a balance between hard-edged geometrical precision and free-form patterns. The result has a certain levity, as disparate materials “come together to form upbeat, balanced wholes, perhaps providing us with a small dose of necessary idealism.” [text by Danny Brody & Kate Menard, courtesy of Hollis Taggart]
