Elisa D'Arrigo     Bio   Statement                Messenger
This online exhibition focuses exclusively on the sculptor Elisa D'Arrigo's works on paper, specifically from a series entitled "Chiaroscuro". D'Arrigo begins by using black ink to draw many dark circular images onto small squares of Japanese paper. Because the paper is very thin, the ink bleeds onto a second sheet, creating a lighter "ghost". Echoing the obsessive processes of her sculpture, D'Arrigo then pieces together a multitude - sometimes hundreds - of these tiny dark and light drawings to form larger, irregularly shaped configurations. These haunting works, solid in form, yet delicately built of cell-like fragments, imply continuous change; one can easily imagine them expanding and contracting, growing and disintegrating. Elisa D'Arrigo was born in the Bronx and lives and works in New York. Her work has been exhibited at the Boise Art Museum, ID; the High Museum, Atlanta, GA-, the Krannert Art Museum, Champaign, IL; the Weatherspoon Art Gallery, Greensboro, NC; and the Newark Museum, NJ.
