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 landscape. 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 and stitched’. Her vessels involve a series of ritual processes: wrapping, weaving, binding, knotting, suturing and burning.
