Angelina Gualdoni

Artadia Awardee

“[Gualdoni’s paintings] offer the expressive qualities of paint in combination with the artist’s skill to collaborate with process.” – René de Guzman, Senior Curator, Oakland Museum of California

Angelina Gualdoni’s works on canvas take the patterns of interiors and abstraction as their main focus, locating the rhythm of the everyday sublime in the language of color field painting. Often staining both sides of the canvas, her paintings operate as fluid scrims and passageways between domestic and/as work spaces. Gualdoni’s paintings have been the subject of solo and group shows nationally and internationally at the Queens Museum, NY; St. Louis Art Museum, MO; the Museum of Contemporary Art, Chicago, IL; The Aldrich Museum, Connecticut; the Museum de Paviljoens, Netherlands; and the Neuberger Museum, Purchase, NY. Her work resides in the Saatchi Collection, as well as in the MCA, Chicago and the Nerman Museum, Kansas City. She has been the beneficiary of several grants and fellowships, including Pollock-Krasner, NYFA (2008, 2015), and she has attended residencies at MacDowell Colony, Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture, International Studio and Curatorial Program, and Chateau La Napoule. Gualdoni received her BFA from the Maryland Institute College of Art in Baltimore and her MFA from the University of Illinois in Chicago.

She resides and works in Brooklyn and is represented by Asya Geisberg Gallery in New York. Gualdoni is one of 10 organizers at an artist-run exhibition space Regina Rex, located in the Lower East Side of Manhattan.
