Of the featured artists, Carolina Pitiera is a notable presence. Piteira has won several prizes including the Degree Art Signature Art Award, and has exhibited in London, Paris, Rome, Athens and Lisbon in various group and solo shows. In 2015, she was invited to be part of the Imago Mundi Collection: art commissioned and collected by Luciano Benetton.
Pitiera explores indigenous communities relatively untouched by industrialisation. Her portraits have a strong sense of introspection, calmness and contemplation and pay homage to the importance of preserving the colourful diversity of cultures, ethics and traditions in order to avoid a monochromatic world.
‘Worlds Beyond Words’ will be an escape from the rigid binaries of the monochrome into the more fluid, bold and inclusive world of colour.
Also featured in the exhibition is Emma Elliott, a British sculptor whose central concerns are the incongruous and hypocritical aspects of humanity and the impermanence and fragility of the natural world.
Recognition of her work includes the Winter Pride 2014 and Passion for Freedom 2015 awards, and her work is held in a number of prestigious public and private collections.
This show is inspired by the non-linear, right-brained realm of the artist, and her ability to spontaneously create and communicate worlds beyond words.
