Tiziana Pierri (Buenos Aires, 1984) engages in a lyrical and bold exploration of pictorial language, incorporating elements of abstraction, figuration, geometry and gestural painting. The paint is applied in an evanescent manner, layering precisely chosen colors in unexpected palettes. Her works achieve a visual elegance discomforted by touches of the arbitrary or the unreasonable, which in turn emphasize its aspect of contemporary exploration.
Descendant of a lineage of painters that was patented in the exhibition Lxs Pierri (Centro Cultural Recoleta, 2017) – a show that spanned almost a century of dedication to painting through the work of three generations of artists,
Orlando Pierri (1913-1991), Duilio (1954) and Tiziana (grandfather, father and daughter)-, she has managed to formulate a personal language through a constant experimentation that began in her childhood and that has led her to a particular self assurance and freedom in the use of color, line and the treatment of the pictorial surface, where subtle gestures of humor and absurdity burst in, intrusions that refer to a universe of fantasy and style, disrupting the limits of her own formal research. A sassy, loose, self-determined way of painting.
She studied at the Artists Program of the Di Tella University and was selected to participate in the Kuitca Fellowship (2011). She had solo exhibitions at Nora Fisch (2011, 2016, 2019), Mite (2010) and Alberto Sendrós (2006) galleries, and at the Di Tella UTDT exhibition space in Buenos Aires, among others. She participated in numerous group shows including Últimas Tendencias II at the Museo de Arte Moderno de Buenos Aires and Las decisiones del tacto at Casa de América, Madrid (2017), curated by Sonia Becce and Mariano Mayer. She won awards from the Andreani Foundation (2009) and the Central Bank Acquisition Award (2018) . In 2015 she was invited to participate in the Braque Prize sponsored by Muntref and the French Embassy. In 2012 she participated in the third edition of the URRA Art Residency in Buenos Aires together with local and international artists.
