Iva Gueorguieva: Reinvigorating Prints will feature several large multi-media prints, completed at Graphicstudio, University of South Florida, that adapt the complicated and spontaneous nature of the artist’s paintings. Gueorguieva’s prints have been described as “pushing printmaking past its usual comfort zone. Spatially mesmerizing, kinetic and gestural.”
The monoprints are unique works of art, employing an “encyclopedic” array of processes including direct gravure, spitbite aquatint, drypoint, woodcut, lithography and silkscreen. The prints will be shown along with three collages that have been painted and drawn on, including one that employs recycled material from the printing process.
Gueorguieva has had solo exhibitions at BravinLee programs, New York; LUX Art Institute, Encinitas, Calif., Angles Gallery, Santa Monica, Calif., Contemporary Art Museum, University of South Florida; Outline, Amsterdam, Netherlands, and Electric Works, San Francisco. She also has an upcoming solo show at Galerie Stefan Röepke in Koln, Germany. Her work is included in the collections of the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, the Minneapolis Institute of Art and the Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles.
Her prints are courtesy of the USF Contemporary Art Museum and a private collection and her collages are courtesy of Ameringer | McEnery | Yohe, New York, NY.
