Aurora Pellizzi’s work playfully combines formal concepts of painting and sculpture with craft techniques.
Her practice is informed by pre-industrial textile processes and materials, from natural dyeing to back-strap loom weaving.
Technical constraints give way to textural, dimensional shapes and forms. Fiber is used both as a pictorial field and as the embodiment of the subject it represents.
Pellizzi uses natural infusions of indigo, Brazilwood, cochineal, avocado pits, and Aztec marigold and their combinations to produce her color palette. Humor acts as a catalyst dissipating the traditionally ascribed divide between craft and art.
Aurora Pellizzi (b. Mexico City, 1983) currently lives and works in Mexico City, Mexico.
She studied Art at The Cooper Union School in New York (BFA, 2010) and Art History at New York University (BFA, 2005).

Curated by Bjorn Stern for Galerie Kandlhofer, the exhibition "Weltgeist" examines the influence of humanism and its development over time. Seven international artists, including Janine Antoni, Reza Aramesh, Alejandro Jodorowsky, and the renowned late Hermann Nitsch, employ their individual techniques to shed light on the theme.
In her exhibition WATER, artist VIVIAN GREVEN reveals a series of large-scale paintings depicting different moments of birth. Greven paints birth explicitly, depicting it in itself, as an act of action. And despite the explicit pictorial subjects, it seems as if time stands still in the paintings: they hold something infinite.
Munchies Art Club is thrilled to share Alfredo Barsuglia's first solo exhibition "Pille" at Galerie3 in Austria features paintings, objects, and large pneumatic pills. The exhibition offers a unique and fantastic spatial experience, with clear and poetic image motifs and graffiti sprayed directly onto the gallery walls.
Our eyes, restlessly moving, almost dancing, follow the lines and diagonals shooting from the core in multiple directions. Every single line of colourful fabrics, hand-written expressive notes, tokens of systems, symbols or other visual aids imply a passionate, deep dive into unexplored topics. An information cluster instantly triggers our fantasy. What are these? The eager notes of an explorer, accounts from a diary, mental maps, or obsessive doodles with signs of automatism combined with an intentional loss of control?
