Fine Lines

Discover the work and words of a remarkable avant-garde artist

In her later years, Gego was afflicted with arthritis and could no longer work with wire. She turned instead to paper, creating tejeduras by cutting strips from old catalogs and magazines and weaving them together in loose grids. Her pursuit of line continued unabated.

Line is the dominant element in Gego's art.

Gego created a body of work that is beautiful, investigatory and still highly relevant. She was a private person and didn't promote her biography in service of her work. The papers included in Sabiduras were tucked away and never shown to anyone. But with their publication and ongoing exhibitions of Gego's work, more of us are learning more about this remarkable woman, her art, her life and the forces that shaped them.
