Artist Talk – Gathered, Absorbes, Carried: Gabriella Kirby

Womenswork.Art Gallery is delighted to announce the solo exhibition “Gathered, Absorbed, Carried” by Gabriella Kirby, featuring a collection of mixed media paintings on plaster, canvas and paper that reflect on the emotional landscape of vulnerability we traverse in order to connect with the world around us. Learn from Gabriella Kirby in the artist talk on Sunday, August 8.

Kirby’s improvisational process ebbs and flows between tension and release, conflict and resolution, fear and ease. A series of fractured marks and plumes of atmospheric traces evokes the passage of an entity through space. Drawn marks scrape and carve their way into the plaster’s surface, a material whose inherent sensitivity holds duelling qualities of fragility and strength. Transparent washes of color flood and swiftly absorb into the raw canvas. Due to the nature of these exposed surfaces, nothing can hide here. Line mirrors vulnerability; both describe the distance between two points, with the ability to simultaneously separate and connect. “Gathered, Absorbed, Carried” becomes an imprint of those moments spent in this delicate space.
