New American Paintings & Future Shipwreck Present: Iva Gueorguieva (VIDEO) by openstudiospress

The work of LA-based artist Iva Gueorguieva is an elegant and controlled form of chaos, evoking movement at every possible turn. Gueorguieva’s paintings and collages clamor with so many visible points of entry that, when standing in front of one, it’s impossible to focus on any one place. (She also makes some really great noises when describing her work.)

The focus of this month’s Spotlight feature in edition #91 of New American Paintings, currently on newsstands, Gueorguieva opens up about her process, the importance of cutting in her work, and how something as simple as sound informs the paintings she makes.

For our first New American Paintings video production, we teamed up with blogger Graham Kolbeins of Future Shipwreck fame, who caught up with the Bulgarian-born artist recently while working in her studio. Enjoy! More videos coming soon!  —Evan J. Garza, Editor-at-Large

I’ve been reading artspeak for years. Now I can hear artspeak.
I’m not sure it expands my appreciation of the work any more; although it’s nice to see the artist. She seems pretty genuine.

The write-up in NewAmPaintings was very enlightening to me…Gueorguieva’s “Reclining Nude: Stabbed” and the way that the critic described it helped me understand and articulate what it is that I enjoy about the work of a hip hop artist I’ve had the pleasure of getting to know over the past year in Detroit (Doc Waffles).
