Edelweiss Calcagno: Putting Many Media in the Service of Truth

October 21, 2014 – 5:48 pm | Comments Off

There is an impressive amount of versatility in the works of Edelweiss Calcagno.

Edelweiss Calcagno-Faithfull

Edelweiss Calcagno-Faithfull

Employing a range of media that runs from gouache to pastels to lithography and sculptures, she expresses a powerful vision that comes through in a surprising variety of ways. With a bold sense of line, color and movement, her images incorporate elements of realism, Cubism and Expressionism and abstract art. But her vibrant pieces transform those styles through their dynamic compositions and the mixture of what Edelweiss Calcagno calls “total freedom” with a highly disciplined technique. “My art is not simple,” she says. Rather, it is the result of a meticulous process in which she builds each piece up layer by layer to produce a “labyrinth of colors and materials.”

Inspired by her faith in Jesus and a desire to expose “the injustice that I see,” her images convey a passion for life that unifies the influences that come to play in them. Whether expressing abstract concepts or rendering lifelike human figures, she gives each image a sense of space, light and physicality that pulls viewers in, and then subtly rewards their attention.

About the Exhibition

From photorealistic renderings to energetic abstractions, the artwork in Kaleidoscope of the Mind demonstrates the myriad truths artists investigate through their work.
