LUCY TARQUINIO

 

Born in Atlanta, GA (1999)

BFA Cooper Union for the Advancement of 

Science in Art (2021)

Lives and Works in Brooklyn, NY

 

 

TARQUINIO, (b. 1999) a New York-based artist, obtained her BFA from Cooper Union in 2021. Exploring the line’s elusive role in representation, abstraction, and language, the artist’s process-based practice obscures ideas of familiarity, oscillating between seen and imagined. As an intervention to Tarquinio’s system, unique and absurd photo material inspires further exploration into the realm of abstraction. The finished product, skewed and abstracted into a chromatically layered composition, both conceals and reveals the trials and tribulations of the artist’s rigorous and intimate process. Tarquinio is a recent recipient of the 2022 - 2023 Abbey Scholarship in Painting and 2020 Rolf G. Haerem Paint Award. The artist’s work has been shown internationally at the Fundacion Maceta, Mexico City, Mexico; Romanian Academy in Rome, Rome, Italy; The British School, Rome, Italy; among others.
