Gisela Colón is an American contemporary artist who has developed a unique sculptural language of Organic Minimalism, breathing life-like qualities into reductive forms. Through a vocabulary of anthropomorphic geometries, Colón challenges, deconstructs and expands on the Minimalist canon. Her pristine light-activated sculptures are created utilizing innovative 21st century materials such as optical acrylics and high-technology aerospace carbon fiber. Colón has exhibited internationally throughout the United States, Europe, and the Middle East. Standout exhibitions include the Land Art Biennial, Desert X AlUla (Saudi Arabia, 2020), Quantum Shift, Frieze Sculpture (London, 2021), and Forever is Now (Egypt, 2021); presenting a site-specific monument at the Pyramids of Giza, a UNESCO landmark dating back 4,500 years. Colón’s sculptures reside in institutional collections such as the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, Museum of Contemporary Art San Diego, and Perez Art Museum Miami.
Originally from San Juan, Puerto Rico, Colón resides in Los Angeles, California.
