Lottie Consalvo’s solo exhibition ‘Somewhere Else’ at Maitland Regional Art Gallery in 2019 brings together her abstract paintings and video work, both underpinned by performance and deep personal enquiry. Her immersive video work, deep canvas and paired paintings unfold the the immeasurable, distant places within the self.
Consalvo’s doppelgänger paintings explore the impossibility of replicating original thought, presenting a singular work and its echo alongside each other. Consalvo’s deep canvas stretches 4 metres across the gallery floor, giving the sliver of a painted surface a colossal presence. Her video work ‘I Stirred The Sea To See If It Was Alive’ is made up of a montage of haunting images that juxtapose the restless ocean with the artist’s slow, purposeful movements.
