ARTIST BIOGRAPHY
For the past two decades, Ricci Albenda has performed an investigation into language, exploring the ways in which the written word is simultaneously a visual, personal, communal, and intellectual entity. Simultaneously, Albenda has also developed his own system in which alphabetical and numerical systems are paired with the color wheel: Vowels fall onto the archetypal hues of the prismatic ROYGBIV spectrum: a = Red, e = Orange, i = Yellow, o = Green, u = Blue, and y finds itself between Indigo and Violet. Numerals occupy the magenta tones, connecting the end of the alphabet with its beginning to form a complete color wheel. Within these investigations, each work becomes its own framework and site of inquiry, demonstrating versatility, and most importantly, the sense of play inherent to studio practice.
