Louisa Gagliardi, ink, gel medium on PVC. Executed 2015.
"Philippe". 163.9 x 119.7 cm.
“Louisa Gagliardi (b. 1989) draws freely from the codes of painting as well as contemporary graphic design and advertising in order to rethink questions of figure and ground, flatness and depth. Created initially as fluid digital images, her works are printed on vinyl and then intervened upon with a gel medium that lends a texture that could be read as ghostly impressions of painterly marks. However, rather than appealing to the hand, this texture only underscores the surface as a complex field of visual play –a theme brought forth in this suite of works through the reoccurring motif of veils and unveiling. Dancing between dimensionality and translucence, her landscapes and characters bridge the divide between the enigmatic and the banal.” —Franklin Melendez
