Raised in Italy, Beatrice Caracciolo (b. 1955, São Paulo, Brazil) engages the limits of abstraction, both distilling and disrupting the photographic image, her frequent source material. Working from forms caught in motion, her keenly-observed drawings reveal frenetic, entangled bodies. Beneath their surfaces, the pentimenti of past markings suggest additional voluminous depths. Caracciolo’s work has been the subject of one-person exhibitions at Gracie Mansion, New York; the Savannah College of Art and Design in Savannah, Georgia; and the Château de Haroué, France, among others. Her work is in the public collections of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York; Centre Georges Pompidou, Paris; Yale University Art Gallery, New Haven; and the Accademia di Francia a Roma Villa Medici, Rome.
