With a philosophical approach, Gianna Pollarolo’s work views both the macro and micro worlds by showcasing the energy that exists within dimensions that have been proven to exist and those that man believes to exist. Painted canvases, punctuated with galactical orbs, geometric patterns and three-dimensional elements, tell of the boundaries continuously broadened by scientific exploration.

A vigorous palette of blacks, blues and greys pulls the observer into a seemingly limitless space that could belong to our own self just as well as an otherworldly atmosphere. Each form seems to bring different experiences and perspectives, enforcing the sense of mutability on the transient nature of the universe and everything that exists within it. Even if the constant motion and expansion of the cosmos are imperceptible, an unavoidable effect is sensed in the inherent state of our lives.

Motivated by the rapid growth of scientific and technological innovattion, Pollarolo and her work enter a deep, and often conscientious, philosophical dimension. In this revealing space, spherical shapes repeat, intertwine, and connect, forming a molecular community and place of unity; one that acknowledges our place and relationship with the vast universe and that would otherwise be invisible to the naked eye.

Though the mediums used by the artist speak in differing dialects, her work is connected through the eternal search: the search within ourselves, and that which extends beyond our capacity to imagine – and perhaps even accept – as real

“From new knowledge generated by de consciousness and energy, came the evolution of thought, changing he human paradigms.”
Gianna Pollarolo
