Gisela Colón

Gisela Colón is a Puerto Rican-American contemporary artist who uses space-age technologies to create sculptures and their larger cousins, land art. Described as organic minimalism, Colón’s work features natural-looking, smooth shapes of fluid forms that draw from the natural biodiversity of Puerto Rico, the Caribbean Island where she grew up. Gisela Colón has exhibited internationally throughout the United States, Europe, and the Middle East.

In 2020, Colón presented a monumental site-specific installation in the Land Art Biennial, Desert X AlUla 2020 in Saudi Arabia. Her work is currently on view in 2022 in institutional exhibitions: Light Space Surface: Works from the Los Angeles County Museum of Art at the Frist Art Museum, Nashville Tennessee, and The Feminist Divine, a solo exhibition at SCAD Museum of Art, Savannah Georgia, and in a land art project at Lustwarande, a baroque forest in The Netherlands.

Her first verified exhibition was molaa awards 08 at Molaa Museum of Latin American Art in Long Beach, CA in 2008, and the most recent exhibition is The Feminist Divine at SCAD Museum of Art 2022. Colón has had at least 25 solo and 50 group shows over the last 13 years. She has also been in no less than 10 art fairs and one biennial. Notable shows were Quantum Shift at Tephra Institute of Contemporary Art, Washington DC in 2021, and Forever is Now at the Pyramids of Giza, Egypt in 2021. Gisela Colón has been exhibited alongside Larry Bell and Hans Kotter.
