Exhibition Dates: 8 to 26 February 2023

A solo exhibition by Gaia Starace which explores the timeless and unbounded formations of clouds.

The symbolism of clouds is clearly recognisable throughout history—from celestial realms to mere weather conditions, clouds are seen as untouchable, always impermanent, floating between the sky and the earth in a perpetual state of stillness and movement. Projecting infinite moods to its exquisite colours and configurations, clouds are of endless fascination to children today as they captivated our childhood imagination in search for familiar shapes.

Rooted in the natural world, Forever Clouds is a visually captivating site-specific installation that teases our perception of reality. Including semi-abstract paintings, minimalistic sculptures, and a full height installation with symbolic lightning, this exhibition engages a broad generational audience, inviting one’s unique interpretation of the timeless and unbounded formations of clouds. Conveying feelings of wonderment and playfulness, Forever Clouds instigates many possible layers of meaning: from self-reflection to a broader collective cognition of the life changing events we’re facing today, this exhibition also wishes to contemplate the beauty of our natural environment, while aspiring to preserve it and respect it.

In speaking about her process, the artist explains, 'Painting is an emotional and intuitive process for me...I always strive to find harmony within the different techniques I utilise. I love to re-create things, playing with the mediums, stretching their meanings...'
