Barcelona-based Cinta Vidal (previously) produces complex architectural constructions to express how differently individuals can occupy the same world— each inhabitant carving out their own nook, cranny, and path within a similar environment. Her new acrylic on wood panels continue to serve as a metaphor for the difficulty of understanding those around us, especially while distracted by navigating our own complicated existence.
Vidal’s paintings set domestic and natural environments in their own gravity-defying orbit, making small planets out of Bauhaus homes, secluded camping spots, and cacti-filled parks. The characters included in each work seem unaffected by the others around them, many wistfully daydreaming or lost deep within a book.
This past December Vidal presented four works with Thinkspace Gallery at Scope Miami Beach and will also show a few with the same space at the LA Art Show from January 27-31. You can read more about Vidal’s process and architectural works on her blog here.
