Conscious by Angelica Bergamini
September 19, 2016
Ivy Brown is pleased to present Angelica Bergamini’s first solo New York exhibition Conscious. This exhibit will feature three bodies of Bergamini’s vibrant, mixed media work: Know Thyself, Memento and Freedom.
Know thyself is sourced in the words of Krishnamurti, “The beginning of Freedom is self-knowledge”. This atmospheric body of works on paper using acrylic, ink, pigment inkjet print, represents the journey of self-discovery, visiting the unconscious while glimpsing the process of becoming ourselves. Like pages of a journal, one story visually unfolds and leads you to the next. We are honored to premiere three videos in this series that bring Know thyself to another level.
Memento is the root of her odyssey, it is both a pilgrimage and its migration. These mixed media pieces vividly reflect on what is both past and present.
The tactile and nature-infused Freedom series extends into the world with densely cut paper compositions. They embody the flow of self-knowledge, and explore the feminine, harmony and groundedness as crucial elements of our humanity.
Angelica’s multi-layered works are informed by her ongoing efforts to create a less reactive and more responsive presence in the world. They act as the muse to meditations on the many facets of surrender, empowerment, reverence, and love that exist in ourselves, and in our relation to a greater whole.
