Cardenas exhibition opens at YSU, Youngstown, 2018-10-17

“YOUNGSTOWN — The work of Gaby Berglund Cardenas opens today at

Youngstown State University.

Cardenas is an international multi-disciplinary artist whose work straddles

disparate worlds — Houston, where she currently lives as an expat; her

birthplace of Ecuador, where her family lives; Sweden, where her new

home is; and South Korea, which has influenced her spirit after living there

for about nine years.

Through her art, she addresses the human condition, the female body and

the realms of spirituality. Her work spans mediums from paintings and

printmaking to installation, textiles and artist’s books.

Cardenas works from her studio in Houston and is a member of

PrintMatters and the Burning Bones Press in Houston. She also is

represented by Grafik i Vast in Gothenburg, Sweden, where she’ll be

moving next year.

Upcoming projects include a solo exhibition at the Carl Jung Center in

Houston in February 2019 and participation in the collective show

“Nevertheless She Persisted” at the Koehnline Museum of Art in Chicago

this month.

She earned her master’s degree in oil painting from Kyungsung University

in Busan, South Korea, in 2012 and has been actively exhibiting

internationally in such galleries and museums as the Edward Hopper

House of Art, New York; Koehnline Museum of Art, Chicago; The Beaney

Museum of Canterbury, England; Hangaram Museum in Seoul, South

Korea; and the Lawndale Art Center in Houston.

“Gaby Berglund Cardenas: Life as You Wait” will be on display at Bliss

Hall’s Judith Rae Solomon Gallery through Oct. 5. An opening reception is

5 to 7 p.m. today and admission is free. Call 330-941-2307.”
