05 Nov Brigette Caramanna: Parallelism: Past Perlustration / Future Formulation
About the Exhibition
In her intricate, complex etchings, artist Brigitte Caramanna attempts to merge the past and future through the documentation of landscapes detached from humanity. Her work portrays scientific discoveries, unreachable places, and mysterious gaps in knowledge throughout civilization. Established in drawings, her images are thoughtfully carved in a meticulous, precise manner. Caramanna’s prints are pensive, as she transcribes both the fragility and vitality of nature. She describes places that present the feeling of being on another planet, earth in prehistoric times, and places yet to be explored. Her work is able to question and consider many possibilities of life on earth and throughout the universe(s).
