Baltimore Museum of Art acquires work by Virginia Jaramillo

May 13, 2021

Hales is excited to announce that The Baltimore Museum of Art have acquired Untitled  (1967) by Virginia Jaramillo. The work is currently on display in Now Is The Time: Recent Acquisitions to the Contemporary Collection at the Baltimore Museum of Art, MD which runs until July 18 2021. 

Untitled (1967) is exemplary of Jaramillo’s early exploration into the pure essence of line and colour. Intensely vivid fields of colour are disrupted by precise blocks and lines that curve, divide and intersect. An important piece informed by a non-western aesthetic; Untitled was the inspirational catalyst for her renowned Curvelinear series. The forms and colours for this painting were a result of Jaramillo’s research into Japanese woodblock prints of the Edo period and her interest in the concept of ‘Ma,’ which is concerned with negative space and its significance.
