Gagosian Artist Spotlight

Jennifer Guidi



I try to capture those fleeting moments of the bright colors in the sky, how the colors of the mountains change, how the light reflects off the buildings

Gagosian Artist Spotlight

One Artist, One Work, One Week




Light and color pervade every aspect of Jennifer Guidi’s work. The Los Angeles artist’s radiant, mandala-like paintings are marked by tonal and chromatic shifts that operate in concert with richly textured surfaces. The effect echoes natural phenomena and undergirds a powerful archetypal symbolism. Guidi mixes sand into her paints—she uses both oils and acrylics—to produce immersive abstract compositions that borrow from the pared-down structures of Minimalism while evoking ancient theories of energy and perception.


As part of Artist Spotlight, Jennifer Guidi is presenting a new work directly from her studio. The work will be revealed on Friday, April 24th on the Gagosian website.


About Artist Spotlight

As arts institutions worldwide temporarily close their doors to support efforts to contain the Covid-19 pandemic, exhibitions everywhere are being canceled, postponed, or curtailed. For artists who have invested time, energy, and resources preparing shows now directly affected by the health crisis, Gagosian is launching Artist Spotlighta new, multifaceted program that invites individual artists to use the gallery’s online channels as an open platform, to present their work to the world and continue generating support for their studios.


Each week, Gagosian will be unveiling a rich weave of editorial features every Wednesday—including videos, interviews, essays, artists’ playlists, and more—providing insights into artistic practice and process, inspirations and influences. Each Friday at 6am edt, the gallery will present a single artwork exclusively online page, making it available with pricing information for forty-eight hours only.
