Annalisa Ferraris | New Dawn
New Dawn marks Annalisa Ferraris’ return to hard edge minimalism, refined by sculptural depth and developed palette. Her sculptural paintings and iconic pools successfully blur the line between sculpture and painting, challenging the execution of shadows and creating depth perception that is at once taunting and calming. This more minimalist development was an inevitable trajectory for Ferraris, as her painterly exploration of minimal abstraction was developed and implemented. Drawing on the great minimalist masters that have come before her, Ferraris finds a quiet calmness in the abstract, which translates to the affectual pull of her serenely sculptural paintings. In New Dawn, Ferraris delves into the conceptual, prompting her viewer to question their perceptions, by skillfully creating the world anew through her quiet, minimalist lens.
