Ronchini is proud to host Softness as a Torrent, a solo show of artworks by British artist Kate Burling exploring ideas of divinity, symbolism and the ordinary.


In Softness as Torrent (2024), Kate Burling uses painting to investigate ideas of force and divinity, exploring through image-making how potency and gentleness might occupy the same space. The paintings receive dimensions and depth through a set of signs: shapes which repeat and differ. A smooth, disk-like circle reoccurs most often. Sometimes it is falling, flooding the image in swarms. Elsewhere their softened edges give way to another image: the ovular shape of a bell, the roundness of St. Sebastian’s nipple. Sharper forms take shape too, in the tubular arrows of ‘Sebastian With Trumpets’ (2024), or in a downpour, deflecting off the umbrella’s surface in ‘Me and You (Air-screw)’ (2024).
