About the artist
Angela de la Cruz was born in 1965 in Galicia, north western Spain. Her use of the language of both painting and sculpture creates striking works that combine formal tension with emotional presence. She engages with the components of painting by challenging the stretcher as well as the paint itself. Slashed, twisted and re-formed, her paintings become something more akin to sculpture. Breaking these conventions, her works appear to mimic aspects of human behaviour or states of mind, making manifest a seemingly violent process. She was nominated for the Turner Prize in 2010 for her solo exhibition, After at Camden Arts Centre and also won the Paul Hamlyn Award in 2010.
Angela de la Cruz lives and works in London and is represented by The Lisson Gallery.
Cruz’s selected solo exhibitions include Transfer , Helga de Alvear, Madrid, Spain and The Lisson Gallery, London, (2011); After , Camden Arts Centre (2010); Centro Andaluz de Arte Contemporaneo, Spain (2005); Museo de Arte Contemporanea de Vigo, MARCO Spain (2004). Anthony Wilkinson Gallery, London (2001).
Her work is held in collections including the Contemporary Art Society, London; Coleccion of Contemporary Art, Fundacion La Caixa Fundacion, Barcelona, Spain ; National Gallery of Victoria, Melbourne, Australia ; Fundacion Helga de Alvear, Madrid-Cáceres, Spain and Tate Collection, London.
