Olga Armand Ugon | The South
GALERIA ISAAG (IDB Staff Association Art Gallery) is pleased to present The South, a solo exhibition, by Uruguayan artist Olga Armand Ugon
that assembles numerous artworks produced in different moments, using different techniques, depicting personal experiences and her own sensibility to her native land.
Her spontaneous brushstrokes aimed at the search for richness and value of color, lines, and matter move firmly, naturally,--as if exploring the rolling plains and low hills of her land in The South--generating stains and spaces, some charged with stillness, others filled with playful or intense inner states. At times instead of painting, Armand Ugon assembles fragile materials, gluing, composing with them, and running a line to create a certain character within the stains, generating relationships and dialogue between spaces, stains, and textures. The intentionally unfinished faces awaken the imagination, inviting the viewer to join in the emotional experience of the artist's inner world or to complete the visage with their own.
Born in Montevideo, Uruguay, where she currently lives, Armand Ugon began her art studies at eighteen and has a degree in Fashion Design from Instituto Catala in Barcelona. Her work has been presented in numerous collective and solo exhibitions in Argentina, Brazil, Uruguay and New York City. Her work has been selected by Saatchiart numerous times for special collections.
