Cristina de Miguel / New Paintings
April 25 – June 7, 2019

Cristina de Miguel / Flag Man, 2019

Cristina de Miguel / Pornoboy, 2019

Fredericks & Freiser is pleased to present an exhibition of new work by Cristina de Miguel (b. 1987). The Spanish artist makes figurative paintings built upon a network of neo-expressionistic affinities, graffiti-inflected spray paint, and highly intuitive paint application.

Cristina de Miguel / Buddha on the Grass, 2019

De Miguel’s paintings display a willingness to reconcile opposite concepts. Her figures are by turns, dignified and debased. She employs a bright color palette yet there is a dissonance that is dark and strangely perverse. Narrative plays a role as well, though de Miguel is wary of anecdote and explanation.

Cristina de Miguel / Adam and Eve, 2019

For her second exhibition at Fredericks & Freiser, de Miguel continues to address the typically masculine style of neo-expressionism as a visual reference point. Within the parameters of this male-dominated form of painting, she explores an open-ended story of desire and sexuality from a thoroughly female perspective.

 

Cristina de Miguel / Circus People, 2018

Cristina de Miguel / Untitled, 2019

In her world, men often take the form of demon lovers: available and bold yet represented as primarily “other.” Couples (including the origin narrative of Adam and Eve) are treated less as connected partners and more as distant beings – sharing a universe wherein emotional connection is more secluded than her vigorous brushwork would have you believe.
