Equilibrium: Fanny Sanín

Equilibrium invites viewers into the rigorous working process of pioneering Colombian-born artist Fanny Sanín. Known for her colorful geometric abstract compositions, Sanín makes between four and eighteen carefully composed preliminary works for each finished painting.

This exhibition explores her methodical process through a selection of some the artist’s earliest abstract expressionist works as well as two complete series of preliminary drawings and their attendant, finished geometric compositions. Sanín’s signature painting style is smooth and meticulous, yet her studies pulsate with visible gesture. She uses drawings, which Sanín describes as the most important part of her process, to experiment with arrangements of form and color until reaching the desired visual equilibrium.
