Georgina Bringas
Linear Journey

The works in Georgina Bringas’ Linear Journey forge a personal relationship to everyday standardized measurements, units and calculations. In twelve square and circular canvases, Bringas embroiders thread of various standardized lengths, resulting in a gradation of tonal quality from canvas to canvas. The meticulous application of thread contributes not only to the formal qualities of the work, but also to its conceptual attributes. Bringas comes to understand her surroundings through the evaluation of numerical expressions as an evocative approach to the world and how it operates. Springing from the idea that to measure is to learn, Bringas better understands her environment through her artistic process. She uses these tools of measurement to create meaningful reflections on space, distance, and time.

Mexico City-based Georgina Bringas has exhibited throughout Mexico and abroad. She has participated in recent exhibitions at Washington DC’s Cultural Center BID (2003), Rome’s IILA Video Art Competition (2003) and Come Closer at Berlin’s Künstlerhaus Bethanien (2005).
