About

Jennifer Guidi creates paintings notable for their luminosity, texture, and sculptural presence. Her swirling, mandala-like compositions oscillate in color and texture, inspiring shifts in perceptual awareness to forge new sensory horizons. Each painting is methodically executed through a unique process—at once systematic and organic—which reflects the connection of her painting practice to strains of Minimalism that privilege attention to detail and repetition. Her sculptural markings evoke an intensely meditative sense of narrative and spiritual votive. Guidi’s richness of palette and trademark use of sand as a medium link her mode of abstraction to tactile experiences of the natural world, from light permeating the landscape at dawn to the hazy atmospheric conditions of the West Coast.

Guidi was born in 1972 in Redondo Beach, California. She received a BFA from Boston University and an MFA from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. Guidi’s work is included in many important public and private collections worldwide. Selected solo exhibitions include Field Paintings, LA><ART, Los Angeles (2014); Pink Sand, Harper’s Apartment, New York (2016); and Visible Light/Luce Visibile, Museo d’Arte Contemporanea Villa Croce, Genoa, Italy (2017). Recent group exhibitions include The Afghan Carpet Project, Hammer Museum, Los Angeles (2015), #crowdedhouse, Harper’s Books, New York (2015); No Man’s Land: Women Artists from the Rubell Family Collection, Rubell Family Collection, Miami (2015, traveled to the National Museum of Women in the Arts, Washington, DC, through 2016); Unpacking: The Marciano Collection, Marciano Art Foundation, Los Angeles (2017); and Generations: Female Artists in Dialogue, Part 1, Sammlung Goetz, Haus der Kunst, Munich (2018).

Guidi lives and works in Los Angeles.
