Summer Artist in Residence
In constant exploration, Vicky's work moves in different directions, approaching a variety of situations and dynamics. Embodied by an empirical investigation of the pictorial structure, where processes departing from spontaneous gestures evolve into elaborate and complex systems where improvisation, organization of form and space, and attention to detail are at its core. There is a consistency throughout the years within her work diversity, perceived and recognized by others as Barranguet's signature. Originally from Uruguay, Barranguet is the recipient of Merit awards at the ASL NY, exhibits at the Lincoln Center’s Cork Gallery, and international exhibitions including one curated by The Frick Collection curators. In 2011, her mural was chosen by Susan Street Fine Art Gallery and the University of California in San Diego, CA for the permanent collection at the Suplizio Family Cardiovascular Center/UCSD. Barranguet lives and works in New York.
