Vicky Barranguet is a painter born in Montevideo, Uruguay that currently lives and works in New York. Vicky has participated in many exhibitions nationally and internationally and her paintings have also been acquired by various private collections. Her work is embodied  by an empirical investigation of the pictorial structure, where processes departing from spontaneous gestures evolve into elaborate and complex systems where improvisation, organization of form and space, and attention to detail are at its core. She created in 2005 the show: Painting Music, a live painting - music show, touring since then through out the world, with original music, nominated for the Latin Grammy Awards, by her partner Gustavo Casenave and participation of Jane Ira Bloom y Federico Britos, Grammy award winners. In 2006, she created a special collection of hand painted dresses, presenting them in Uruguay’s Fashion Week '06, '07 & '08, collaborating with different designers. In 2010 she was the featured artist for Jodi Arnold’s 2010 collection in New York City, featured in the New York Times.

Opening Reception August 7, 2015 6-9pm

The artists exhibiting in "TROPHY ART" are counter points to current trends in which sales and media hype have taken an increasingly larger role in the art world, artists, and how art is valued. The artists exhibiting in "TROPHY ART" instead focus on showcasing one artwork that exemplifies their dedication and devotion to their work. There will be 20 large works in total, ranging from painting, drawing to sculpture. This presentation will pay tribute to the effort, passion and talent entailed in creating a work of art and respecting the detailed processes along the way.

"TROPHY ART" focuses on artists who are pioneers, skilled practitioners, insightful storytellers, overlooked talents, outspoken critics or standout tastemakers. Each work is valued on skill, impact and a passion for their pursuit to make a bold and pervasive statement. The collection is powerful, impressive and resonates with the core aesthetics of the true process of invention and creation.

MIAMI, DECEMBER, 2015

art basel week

"Vicky Barranguet’s use of light, color and texture “grab me” at first viewing, it’s purely emotional. Having no formal training in art I’m not burdened with the knowledge of knowing if there’s too much yellow in the green or if the colors in general are garish.  As a layman, I can simply look at the work and decide,  I like it because:  There is both delicacy and restraint in her use of color, it doesn’t overwhelm, there’s balance between light and shadow. The lines, those wandering lines and shapes (in the abstracts) seem to meander into unity.  All this converges to an explosive culminating point like the arc in dramatic writing or the climax in an aria or pop tune.  When viewing one breathtaking abstract after the other it has an aphrodisiac effect.  In the end, one is left emotionally drained, but sated…


In drama, the question (always) is, “What is the playwright trying to say?  How well does he/she say it? Is it worth saying?  What Vicky is trying to say is open to viewer interpretation.  How well does she say it?  Are you kidding?  Is it worth saying?  Absolutely!"
