‘In 2018 Anna Caione was awarded a Fellowship from the International Specialised Skills Institute, Australia to travel and undertake studies in art in Milan, Italy.

Caione had the opportunity to study the Martenot Method, a unique philosophy of art centered on reawakening creativity. Caione was taught by a former student of Ginette Martenot (1902-1996), the founder of the Martenot Method.

Caione’s current exhibition ‘Gesto’ – Gesture, includes new works derived from this philosophy. The artworks centre on bodily proportion and movement and incorporate gesture and ‘stretching’ as an articulation of the human form. The layering of materials further evokes the body’s natural alignments and proportions. These artworks reflect Caione’s recent studies and focus on her capacity of line, mark making and gesture to connect mind and body through movement.’ Exhibition text.
