Katia Santibañez

Katia Santibañez’s vibrant work utilizes grid structures to examine the intricacies and minutiae of organic forms. The artist approaches her gridded canvases precisely, allowing every inch to possess its own expressive quality; this produces layers of sharp, kaleidoscopic patterns that come together in hypnotic yet tranquil abstract compositions. Santibañez's process, a mixture of rigid formal parameters and swirling swaths of color, examines how the structure of objects found in nature can magnify a canvas—leading viewers to contemplate each component as its own entity while simultaneously absorbing how they come together as a whole.
