Lottie Consalvo is a Melbourne-born, Newcastle-based artist whose practice traverses painting, performance, video and sculpture. She creates commanding, gestural works that explore psychological shifts and ideas surrounding longing, desire and the unknown.
Consalvo’s performances are observations of quiet transformative experiences. Her paintings further this conversation in the way that they create a physical presence for imagination and memory, allowing the viewer to walk a tightrope of ambiguity. Working with a restricted palette across mediums, Consalvo often grasps monumental forms and uses the high contrast of opposing dark and light to mark out a place for the intangible. Consalvo’s recent body of work ‘The Aerial View Of An Anthem’ explores 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.
Lottie is a Melbourne-born, Newcastle-based artist whose practice crosses abstract paintings, video and performance works. She has held solo shows at Maitland Regional Art Gallery, Heide Museum of Modern Art and Casula Powerhouse. She has also been extensively exhibited in regional galleries, most recently in Goulburn, Newcastle, and Lake Macquarie. Notably, she was selected to participate in a residency with Marina Abramovic for the 30th Kaldor Public Art Project in 2015.
