Sofia Quirno

Sofía Quirno’s paintings a new experience of everyday associations through her series ‘Heads and Tails’.  The title of the series references the everyday action of flipping a coin to choose between alternate results, considering the conjunction of both odds—as when the coin flips in the air, its victory or truth undetermined—as an option encompassing all possibilities. Heads and tails exist as opposites, but also the complementary possibilities of the object and its meanings.

These drawings and paintings reinterpret the landscapes of the artist’s life to enhance our perception of the strange and often funny experience of being in the world. Using collage and drawing as her underlying processes, she experiments with montage, overlapping images and perspectives, trying to capture the randomness of thoughts. Bringing together heads and tails, concrete and metaphorical images, these works reference the quotidian anecdotes of moving through the world as a Latin American woman painter in NYC.
