A Room With a View: Cristina Isabel Galeote

May 28, 2014

Spanish artist Cristina Isabel Galeote examines the concept of space and spaces in this series of paintings. In her writing she mentions French anthropologist Marc Augé who wrote an essay entitled "Non-Places" which refers to places of transience that do not hold enough significance to be regarded as "places." Contrary to this idea of insignificant spaces, the rooms which Cristina paints are actually beautifully and very intentionally designed.
