UBS 12 × 12: New Artists/New Work
Jeni Spota

Feb 2–Mar 2, 2008

Artist Jeni Spota’s small, impasto paintings are as much about spirituality and reverie as they are about the Italian Renaissance paintings to which they refer—by way of a scene from Pier Paolo Pasolini’s film The Decameron (1971). Inspired by the composition of a dream sequence by the character named Giotto in The Decameron, Spota consistently uses this formal device in her paintings.
