Sydney Albertini

Series Overview

Movement Drawings : Women Series 

These instantaneous life-size narratives depict the close weaving of movement and time. The continuous focused line drawing of a body in motion is made tangible by painted colorful patterns. The patterns follow their own abstract movement as it hides and reveals the body. The power of the line and the power of color moving at their own pace create a sense of time that seems to be suspended in reality. It is this balance of color and line, abstraction and figurative and motion and repetition that defines and characterizes each one of these multi (from diptychs to 20 piece serie) paneled drawings.

Botanical Series

The Botanical series evokes all that is extraordinary in this world. Flora holds constant mystery for me as it embodies strength and beauty in the most complex ways while simultaneously offering immediate aesthetic pleasure for the eye. All pieces are narratives of space based on the tight relationship between each element weaving movement, shape, and color. They are entirely imagined and inspired by my recollection of walks and road trips. The patterns, the combination of colors, and the intermingling shapes represent this complex yet beautiful phenomenon of plant life.
