Gizella K Warburton
Gizella K Warburton’s work has a raw and simple materiality, with layers of detail that are revealed or hidden as light and shadow pass across and through the surfaces, echoing the transience of emotional and physical landscapes. Abstract compositions evolve through the tactile and contemplative process of drawing with paper, cloth and thread. Mark making is an intrinsic part of her practice: “shadowed, scratched, stained, scarred, pierced, wrapped and stitched”.
Their making involves a series of ritual processes: wrapping, sculpting, binding, painting, knotting, suturing and burning.
