Atmospheric Meditations. Before Present (338 U-710 U) by Laura F. Gibellini
The book gathers a series of drawings developed over two years in which Spanish-born artist Laura F. Gibellini reflects upon the possibilities of rendering the atmospheric conditions of a given site visible.
Heather Schatz, Thyrza Goodeve and the book author Laura F. Gibellini will present and discuss Atmospheric Meditations. Before Present (338 U-710 U), with an introduction by Patrick Kiley from Publication Studio Hudson.
The images generated by these fleeting landscapes, these landscapes in flux, resist any understanding of their most basic nature: however, this difficulty has only strengthened Laura F. Gibellini’s resolve to unpick them carefully, over the course of the last few years. There is also something fundamental, essential about the materials she uses: a humble palette, a collection of points that refuse to decide whehter they are clouds or rocks, or lines that are washing lines, and then seem to form maps, and then shift into the fine diagonal lines of the wind.—Beatriz Alonso, curator.
