Born in Hamburg, she studied Architecture and engineering and then emigrated to Venezuela in 1939 where she began her artistic career. Her work, however, has only begun to be noticed recently by critics.Gego: Defying structures deals with a mistrust of architecture, starting with her first pieces, which were heavily influenced by constructivism, until those showing her decisive break with predominating paradigms (Reticulareas), and her adoption of a new sculptural language that materializes in metallic wefts that evolve towards ambiguous forms somewhere between organic and geometric (Chorros, Troncos y Esferas).
