Nina Tryggvadottir: Abstractions: Construction and Deconstruction
David Richard Gallery
Feb. 17, 2021 - Mar. 12, 2021
David Richard Gallery is pleased to present the gallery’s second solo exhibition for Icelandic artist Nina Tryggvadottir, who lived in New York and was one of the few women and an original member of the New York School. The presentation, Abstractions: Construction and Deconstruction, focuses on a selection of eleven mixed media collages created from 1950 through 1958 that combined myriad artist, household, office, packing and construction papers with black ink. While the artist considered each collage a stand-alone work of art, one enamel painting on panel is included to demonstrate how much she enjoyed working in both paper and enamel paint and especially with the collaged geometric imagery of which she was so fond.
