b.1971, Buenos Aires, Argentina
Varda Caivano is a painter who creates modest work with powerful affect. Each canvas becomes an exchange between the act of painting and the experience of perception, representing the painterly pursuit of balance between colour, texture and composition. Caivano's insistence on leaving her works untitled underlines her process-led approach. By evading preordained meaning, the paintings are allowed to reach out to the audience on their own terms. The organic coherence in her final works plays out before the eyes like musical compositions, with the amalgamation of brushstrokes finding harmony as abstract landscapes.
