Anna Caione

6th international biennale of non objective art
Que des femmes/Only women
Melbourne virtual satellite
Hosted by Art Thoughts AU at Yarra Bend Gallery
September 22 - 19 November

My art attempts to interpret my personal approach to abstraction, acquired from the innate complexities and layers inherited from my Italian heritage. The work hinges on the philosophical and poetic associations of the single-coloured artwork termed the ‘Monochrome’- a recent occurrence of twentieth-century art. My use of colour sometimes combined with form attempts to reveal a range of interpretative possibilities. I am attracted to the notion of nothingness or the void and how some hues may behold, a moment of silence, quiet, an ending or death. The textural hand manipulation and layering of the surface expose the raw materials used to uncover the surface palimpsest and the artwork’s subconscious narrative, through which the exposure of the artwork’s skeletal structures and layers are revealed.
