Sydney Albertini (b.1973, Paris) is a French multidisciplinary artist based in Amagansett, Long Island, whose artwork explores the themes and techniques normally associated with what society calls ‘women’s craft.’
Albertini creates both two-dimensional works, in the form of large painted drawings, embroideries quilts and weavings, and three-dimensional pieces, with a focus on traditional fibre techniques such as knits and fabrics. Vividly colourful and irreverently abstract, Albertini’s works are full of energy and movement, with even the subjects of her paintings seeming to wriggle off the canvas. Every new series of works continues to explore relationships both strictly visual (flat versus volume and time) and emotional (man versus woman, individual versus society).
Albertini attended the Atelier de Sèvres in Paris and then studied fresco painting at the International Studio Art Centre in Florence. She then moved to New York in 2002 to study fine art at Parsons School of Design and she showed with Ille Arts and Ashawagh Hall, Duck Creek Arts Centre, and the Parrish Museum. Her work is held in many, USA private and public art collections, such as the Parrish Art Museum, Southampton, USA and Guild Hall in East Hampton, USA.
