    Gego

    Venezuelan • 1912 - 1994

    Venezuelan artist Gego is internationally recognized as a leading female figure of abstraction in Latin America. Gego (Gertrude Goldschmidt) studied architecture and worked as a draughtsman in various firms in Germany before immigrating to Venezuela in 1939.

    Gego's experimentation with pure abstraction in the late 1950s culminated in her most important series, produced in the 1980s, titled Dibujos sin Papel (Drawings Without Paper). In this series, she utilized industrial materials in suspended wire sculptures. These seemingly banal yet technically sophisticated sculptures are representative of the artist's mature style and were undoubtedly informed by her training as an architect. With the series Reticulárea ambiental, Gego built upon the Dibujo sin Papel and further highlighted her interest in spatial abstraction by creating expansive, engulfing sculptures of metal scraps.
