Lottie Consalvo is a Melbourne-born, Newcastle-based artist whose practice traverses painting, performance, video and sculpture. Her work explores psychological shifts and ideas surrounding desire, longing and the ungraspable are present within her work.
Consalvo’s performances are observations of quiet transformative experiences. Her paintings further this conversation in that way that she creates a physical presence for imagination, memory and psychological transitions. Working with a restricted palette across mediums, Consalvo often paints monumental forms amidst vast empty spaces, where the high contrast of opposing dark and light and the outcome of an almost impoverished surface marks out a place for the unknown, the invisible and the intangible.
Lottie Consalvo’s ‘The Aerial View Of An Anthem’ will show commanding new works which explore the distant self and its parallels to the expanse of the sea. In these works, an almost uncontainable mass of paint sits energetically below purposeful forms, giving a portal-like depth to each canvas. This exhibition marks an exciting shift away from the horizon line in Lottie’s work, moving towards the space above or beyond it.
