“You and all my writer friends have given me much help and improved my understanding of many things,” Joan Miró told the French poet Michel Leiris in the summer of 1924, writing from his family’s farm in Montroig, a small village nestled between the mountains and the sea in his native Catalonia. The next year, Miró’s intense engagement with poetry, the creative process, and material experimentation inspired him to paint The Birth of the World. In this signature work, Miró covered the ground of the oversize canvas by applying paint in an astonishing variety of ways that recall poetic chance procedures. He then added a series of pictographic signs that seem less painted than drawn, transforming the broken syntax, constellated space, and dreamlike imagery of avant-garde poetry into a radiantly imaginative and highly inventive form of painting. He would later describe this work as “a sort of genesis,” and his Surrealist poet friends titled it The Birth of the World. #moma#momamuseum#miro#surrealismart#mejiaguinand#mejiaguinandnyc

Mejia-Guinand’s work, mostly abstract, is an invitation to introspection and reflection through large formats imbued with colour and light in which the energy of a redemption renewal for the contemporary plastic arts can be felt. Thus, this is a kind of alchemy between the spirit and painting. Painting is indeed the key that allows Francisco Mejia Guinand to be revealed, loaded with liberating magic, and an ocean of colour, shape and texture.

Mejia-Guinand's Anagram Series “As an sculptor Mejía-Guinand has focused in the last decade in something made rather than something given. On arrangement of tetrahedrons system. Understanding sculpture as a discipline analogous to language. Operating by way of a kind of ‘grammar’ or set of rules. With an internal logic based on difference, in other words. The Mejia-Guinand' s Anagram Series should be understand as a recursive structure. Produce the rules that generate the structure itself."

Mejía-Guinand' s Latticework is an framework consisting of a criss-crossed pattern of vibrant vertical and horizontal stripes. The Lattice paintings are created by crossing the strips to form a network. MG has explored painting through a rich and diverse range of ideas that has spanned a subtle exploration investigates mathematical concepts and their connection on natural forms. #abstractart#contemporaryart#abstractpainting#oilpainting#geometricabstraction#mejiaguinandnyc#mejiaguinand

Lincoln Kirstein’s collection. Lucian Freud. The works are noted for their psychological penetration and often discomforting examination of the relationship between artist and model. Freud worked from life studies, and was known for asking for extended and punishing sittings from his models. #lucianfreud#moma#portrait#mejiaguinand

Drawn from MoMA’s unrivaled collection of Miró’s work, augmented by several key loans, this exhibition situates The Birth of the World in relation to other major works by the artist. It presents some 60 paintings, works on paper, prints, illustrated books, and objects—made primarily between 1920, the year of Miró’s first, catalytic trip to Paris, and the early 1950s, when his unique visual language became internationally renowned—to shed new light on the development of his poetic process and pictorial universe. #momamuseum#miro#mejiguinand#mejiaguinandnyc

Mejia-Guinand reacted against the dominant trend in Latin American Art of Conceptualism, but unlike others, who opted for a Pop or Neo-dadaist vision, he established a synthesis between the legacies and established techniques of gestural abstraction and the tradition of European painting.

Af Klint’s first major group of largely nonobjective work, The Paintings for the Temple, grew directly out of those belief systems. Produced between 1906 and 1915, the paintings were generated in part through af Klint’s spiritualist practice as a medium and reflect an effort to articulate mystical views of reality. Stylistically, they are strikingly diverse, incorporating both biomorphic and geometric forms, expansive and intimate scales, and maximalist and reductivist approaches to composition and color. #hilmaafklint#guggenheim#abstraction#abstractart#mejiaguinand

Monochromes After Reinhardt: 1–28 (2018) continues the artist’s investigation of color separated from its representational function. Inspired by the exhibition Ad Reinhardt: Blue Paintings, held at the gallery’s 537 West 20th Street location in New York in 2017, Levine has created abstract restatements of the twenty-eight works that were on view, making use of pixelation to consolidate the range of blue tones in each painting into a single, truly monochromatic value. This work revisits a technique first employed by Levine in her 1989 group of woodcut prints Meltdown, in which an averaging algorithm was used to create a checkerboard composition based on modernist artists’ iconic paintings. #zwirnergallery#contemporaryart#abstractart#abstraction#sherrielevine#mejiaguinand

Arakawa, Diagrams of the imagination. Blank Lines or Topological Bathing (1980–81) comprises four canvases: a color chart; a vision test chart; and two patterned, off-white canvases, one of which is stenciled with the words “THE PERCEIVING OF ONESELF AS BLANK.” Signs and diagrammatic shapes such as cylinders, arrows, and concentric circles mingle with words and phrases, abstract and semiological signals coming together on the canvas. Arakawa constructed these systems of words and signs to both highlight and investigate the mechanics of human perception and knowledge. #gagossiangallery#arakawa#contemporaryart#mejiaguinand

Pieter Cornelis Mondriaan ( 7 March 1872 – 1 February 1944) He evolved a non-representational form which he termed Neoplasticism. This was the new 'pure plastic art' which he believed was necessary in order to create 'universal beauty'. To express this, Mondrian eventually decided to limit his formal vocabulary to the three primary colors (red, blue and yellow), the three primary values (black, white and gray) and the two primary directions (horizontal and vertical). #geometricabstraction#modernart#abstarctart#mondriaan#mejiaguinand#phillipscollection

“Francisco Mejía-Guinand known for sculptures and large-scale installation art employing elemental materials and shapes such as arrangements of geometric tetrahedrons, which highlight his interest in balance and the contrast between positive and negative fractal space interacting with light, water, and air temperature to enhance the viewer’s experience.” Arensberg, S. #mejiaguinand#geometricsculpture#contemporaryart ##abstraction#sculpture

Sothebys London 05 March 2019 Evening Auction. A hymn to the beauty of flesh: Jenny Saville’s towering three-metre ‘Juncture’ is at once monumental and astonishingly delicate, imposing and impossibly vulnerable. It is a work that cannot be ignored; female flesh in abundance on an utterly giant scale. The work takes a pointedly feminist look at the art historical genre of the nude, and turns the table on the traditional dynamic of male artist and female subject – by painting herself, she is at once the object of scrutiny and the artist in the seat of control. When the work appears as a star of Sotheby’s Contemporary Evening Auction in London on Tuesday, it will be offered with the highest estimate ever placed on a work by a living female artist. #SothebysContemporary#london#sothebyslondon#mejiaguinand
