Lottie Consalvo, ‘I Don’t Remember Its Ending’


Lottie Consalvo, ‘I Don’t Remember Its Ending’, 2018, acrylic on board, 120 x 180 cm

LOTTIE CONSALVO

‘I Don’t Remember Its Ending’ was shown in the group show ‘Rock Paper Scissors’ at Delmar Gallery in 2019. Working with a restricted earthy palette, Lottie Consalvo often paints monumental forms that reference memory and sacred places. This painting is from a body of work that is driven by a feeling of moving towards the horizon line, but never arriving. The bold gestures, the high contrast of opposing dark and light, and the almost impoverished surface produce an affecting abstract tribute to the vulnerable and intangible places deep within the self.

Consalvo is the master of reinvention: restless, enigmatic, charming and magnetic, she is a constant agitator for new languages and means to express the ineffable, satisfied if only for a second before craving new ground. – Ineke Dane
