The Relationship Between Rational & Irrational


Antonieta Sosa Cropped

Antonieta Sosa has a long and rich history in Venezuela. She has worked with a variety of mediums including painting, photography, video and dance. ). Her work is ultimately and fundamentally analytical, though often irreverent, showing in her own words, that the problem is inside herself. She believes that art is energy, and that her work emerges from the relationship between the rational and the irrational.

A Look Inside:

Sosa’s latest project, Silla Invertida II (Inverted Chair II), serves as a bookend piece to her original Silla Invertida (part of the Ella Fontanals-Cisneros Collection). Silla Invertida II borrows its concept from the original—a three piece sculpture that when inverted, the center piece has the design of a cross. This piece will be displayed inverted and the center cross will appear black upon a white background, much like a Malevich masterpiece.
