Magda Bolumar (1936), despite having dedicated her entire life to an extraordinarily visionary artistic practice marked by varied, delicate and deep lyricism, Bolumar has always been framed within the context of 1960s’ Informalist artists. However, her work also tells us about an artist who is especially interested in establishing confluences between organic and constructive elements. And that is precisely what distinguishes her from those artists of her time who found their means of expression in gesture, in texture and in physical alteration of the pictorial field.
Magda Bolumar’s style is characterized by the presence of forms that seem to evoke a dreamlike, cosmic world. Her drawings stand out for the use of fine rhythmic lines drawn on intensely colorful nebulous backgrounds. Based on grids and geometrical structures that provide order and balance, her intention is to establish compositional tensions that manage to evoke constellations or branches emerging from nature.
