Gabriela Giroletti

Moons

3.Feb – 5.Mar 2023

Opening: Fri 3 Feb, 6-8.30pm

Gabriela Giroletti’s compositions, forms, textures and colours, originated from the natural environment, are what we might understand as borders, limits and thresholds. For Commonage, she presents a series of small-scale works that float between instability and equilibrium, accident and intention, interior and periphery. These works are created in an intuitive intimate process that allows flirtation in the margins or beyond edges. Exploring tension and order, the interconnected yet distinct objects are likened to everything between microscopic grains of sand and constellations of infinite celestial companions.

The exhibition is accompanied by a response by poet Stevie Lou Field.

Moon-moon,

from the moon

of my moon.

Suspended

moonettes

I hold

my breath-

so as not

to miss each

passing phase.

S c a t t e r e d

a cluster of

electric elegies

fade

with echoes

cradled

at eternities

edge.
