Cristina Ghetti

Cristinia Ghetti was born in Argentina and lives and works in Valencia, Spain.  She received her Bachelor and Masters in Fine Arts, from UPV, Sant Carles Polytechnic University Valencia, Spain.  Her Doctoral Thesis on “Post Medial Geometry” is focused on research on the development of new geometries in Visual Arts.

Cristina’s work encompasses points from concrete art, constructivism, kinetic and op art, permitting free transits and reconnections between forms and ideas belonging to different periods, traditions and categories. She uses digital tools to materialize art pieces in different formats; abstract ad kinetic art and Op art. Within the context of new technology, Cristina interrelates geometry, color, movement and sound, using the languages developed in the conceptual territory of abstraction. Her paintings are generated first in the computer, and then translated to traditional painting, mixing and playing with media crossings.

 

IN HER OWN WORDS:

I work with geometric abstraction, the goal of my work is both the interest in the re-contextualization of the foundational ideas of Abstraction, incorporating contaminations and re-appropriations, mostly of works of the 60’s.

I’m interested in points from concrete art, constructivism, kinetic and op art, permitting free transits and reconnections between forms and ideas belonging to different periods, traditions and categories in my own work.

Most of my work is a study in progress about perception, or better the boundaries between perception and reality, and art practice is an interesting field to study this condition.

I’m now centralized in the use of digital tools to materialize art pieces of different formats, I’m focused to an evolution of abstract ad kinetic art, with special mention of Op art. Interrelating: geometry, color, movement and sound, using the languages developed in the conceptual territory of abstraction, in the context of new technologies and new ways of producing/diffusing the art work.  My production had been mostly centered in painting and installation, but recently I began to incorporate new media in my work believing that it can emphasize concepts as immersive spaces, synesthesia, interactivity and participation, analyzing how these characteristics can enrich the conceptual dimensions of the art work.

I’m interested also in using programming from a visual and creative perspective exploring the results in art pieces. My paintings are generated first in the computer, then translated to traditional painting, I like to mix and play with media crossings. As an artist, I’m interested in the connection with other fields, I’m working in team projects with infomaticians and mathematicians.

I have a Master of visual arts and multimedia at the UPV, Polytechnic University Valencia, Spain, and I actually develop my doctoral thesis “Post Medial Geometry,” where I make a research about the development of new geometries in visual arts.
