CELINA JURE

Works

Bio

Celina Jure´s work takes multiple forms (installations, performance, sculptures and paintings) with the exhibition as a pretext for deploying not mere pieces of art, but a complete way of living. Her practice skits from one medium to the other, transitioning effortlessly from the two-dimensional and the three-dimensional worlds. She is known for her large-scale paintings on paper. Predominantly abstract and beside their apparent spontaneity, they result in scenic environments. They underline and produce a vivid space for quiet and conjetural contemplation, in which the spectator is introduced as a kind of intruder. In the same direction, her sculptures in handcrafted ceramic explore the link between bodies and space, and between chaos and equilibrium, evoking a sense of both imminence and uncertainty.

Celina Jure (b. 1963, Jujuy, Argentina) has developed both a rooted and cosmpolitan artistic pofile. She traveled to Europe and studied at Ecole des Beaux Arts, in Nîmes, France in 1986. She returns to Buenos Aires and finishes her studies at Escuela Prilidiano Pueyrredón (1983-1990). She settled in The Netherlands, then she moves t Germany.
