Gabriela Salazar

New York based artist Gabriela Salazar creates sculptures, drawings, and site-responsive interventions. In her artist statement, Salazar writes about her practice and its relationship to the built environment and unpredictable forces like nature and time,“Ultimately, the work reframes how we are affected by the changes in what we create. I use found materials and sites, engaging in wordplay, psychogeography, and phenomenology to bring out new associations between the found, the altered, and the made. These pieces and acts draw attention to the way our world is put together, highlighting the space 'in between' in ways both permanent and ephemeral. Within the phenomenological response to the work is the friction between our assumptions about ideals for the built environment, and its simultaneous, imperfect, transient, and intangible realities.”

Gabriela Salazar’s work has been exhibited in solo and group exhibitions, including NURTUREart, Brooklyn, Tompkins Projects, Brooklyn, El Museo del Barrio, New York, Control Room, Los Angeles, and Center on Contemporary Art, Seattle. Salazar has taken part in residencies at the Lower Manhattan Cultural Council, Yaddo, The MacDowell Colony, Skowhegan School of Painting & Sculpture, and The Drawing Center. Her work has been noted in The New York Times, The New Yorker, Hyperallergic, WNYC, and PBS.
