Leah Guadagnoli: Love Lies Bleeding
On October 14, Hollis Taggart will open Love Lies Bleeding, New York-based artist Leah Guadagnoli’s first solo presentation with the gallery. Guadagnoli, who joined Hollis Taggart’s contemporary program in May 2020, is widely recognized for her distinctive three-dimensional wall-based constructions that seamlessly blend the vocabulary of painterly abstraction with the physicality of sculpture. Love Lies Bleeding captures Guadagnoli’s evolution from the hard-edged lines of architecture and kitschy patterns of ‘80s interiors that have long inspired her to more organic forms articulated in bold, bright fields of color. The transition marks an important expansion of the artist’s visual lexicon and a new freedom and openness in her practice. The exhibition will remain on view through November 13, 2021, at Hollis Taggart’s flagship location in Chelsea.
