Isabella Cuglievan’s kaleidoscopic compositions feature marvelously intricate accretions of color that echo the fabrics of the artist’s native Peru. The psychedelic symmetry of the artist’s paintings guide the viewer’s eye through the work. Cuglievan’s works are built organically brushstroke by brushstroke, each mark serving as a reaction to the one before it—often pulling remnants of color left behind from the previous line.
Isabella Cuglievan was born in Peru in 1993. The artist received a BA from Middlebury College in Middlebury, Vermont.
A solo exhibition of Cuglievan’s work took place at Marvin Gardens in Ridgewood, New York (2021).
Other exhibitions of Cuglievan’s work have taken place at: Stanley’s, with Dino Capaldi, in Pasadena, California (2022); KDR305, with Adrianne Rubenstein, in Miami, Florida (2021); Stanley’s, with Candice and Daniel Romanelli, in Pasadena, California (2021); and as part of a group show at Dedalo Gallery in Lima, Peru (2019); among others.
Cuglievan lives in Lima, Peru.
