Anna Caione

"The word strato (layer or coating in Italian) reflects my personal approach to abstraction, influenced by the intricate complexities and layers of my Italian heritage.

The artwork revolves around philosophical and poetic associations, utilising a neutral monochromatic palette. I frequently incorporate pure powdered pigment and the colour white to create soft, tactile surfaces. These surfaces are neither a hue nor tone, nor are they neutral or colourful. I am intrigued by the concept of nothingness or the void that these hues can represent. To me, they reflect a moment of silence, an end, or inner harmony.

My objective is to establish a visual dialogue between the artist, artwork and viewer. The textured manipulation and layering of the surface reveal the raw materials used, uncovering the artwork's sub-surface palimpsest and subconscious narrative. The artwork serves as a means of exploration through the creative process, allowing the viewer to conceive an intangible atmosphere conveyed within the work."
