Katia Santibañez

Born 1964, France. Lives and works in New York, NY.

Katia Santibañez is interested in observing elements of nature and how structure, form, color, and the grid enlighten the work. Her sources include her collection of leaves, pinecones, snails, shells, roots and books, such as Ernst Haeckel's "Art in Forms," Owens Jones "Grammar of Ornament," and W. A. Bentley's "Snowflakes in Photographs". Santibañez has been fascinated by the role of the grid and how it can become invisible, being replaced with a spiral, inviting the viewer into a meditative state where nature gives birth to abstract form.

Santibañez  has shown extensively throughout the United States. Recent solo shows include: The Visible and the Invisible, Morgan Lehman Gallery, NY, and New Paintings, Texas Gallery, Houston, TX. She has been a resident at Yaddo, NY, Casa Wabi, Mexico, The Albers Foundation, CT, and Sitka, OR. Her work is part of numerous public and private collections including The Metropolitan Museum of Art, NY, The Museum of Modern Art, NY and the Beinecke Rare Book and Manuscript Library, CT. She is currently represented by DC Moore in NYC and by Texas Gallery in Houston, TX.
