Lot Essay

Heir to the rich Constructivist tradition in Rio de Janeiro, Jobim has built her practice on relationships between color—signally, ultramarine blue—and the sensitive geometry of shape. Abstractions prompted by arrangements of stones, her early paintings meditate on materiality and volume, their lithic forms at once permeable and solid, linear and multidimensional. Sweeping gestures of blue pigment cascade across the present diptych, the flowing liquidity of the ink expansive and shapeshifting, inscribing the movements of time and space.
