Isabelle Cornaro & others @ Frith Street Gallery
23 February 2018 - 6 April 2018
An exhibition of works by Isabelle Cornaro, Giulia Piscitelli, and Jessica Warboys curated by Rita Selvaggio. It deals with the idea of landscape, which for Warboys is reclusive and visionary, for Cornaro an abstraction of reality, and for Piscitelli a journey through space and time. The “Secret of the Landscape” consists of a physical, mental, tactile and spatial passage, implying a journey from one place to another, where emotional geography is expanded, fractured and then reassembled. Orgon Doors V (2018) by Cornaro brings to mind the mythical process of petrification—the gaze that turns to stone. Sculptures flow from material to abstraction, from fetish to image, from object to subject, from subject to object, and back again. Warboys’ Sea Paintings are made below the high water line at the sea’s edge. The sea, wind, and sand along with the pigment and the artist’s hand create forms through the movement of colour. The landscapes that Piscitelli presents take the form of geographical maps overlaid with gilded saintly halos.
