Studio 13 JOANNA GAMBOTTO
Encapsulating the fine line between reality and fantasy, Gambotto’s series of vividly layered painted works contain various fragmented elements of places visited. Gambottocontorts our perception through inversion, layering, unfolding and fragmenting the objects we have come to know. This fresh twist on still life allows a liveliness in the memories of the home, personalising ornaments of life. Memories of Gambotto’s process are embedded in the canvas, with the techniques of painting, scraping and carving resulting in rich textures..
