Lottie Consalvo is a Newcastle-based artist working across painting, performance, video and photography. Consalvo’s work explores intensely personal moments of quiet strength and reflection. The high contrast of opposing light and dark colours in monumental brush strokes are weighted with psychological presence, but also impart a sense of weightlessness. The performative element of her practice comes through in each abstraction through her gestural application of paint, allowing the viewer to trace the movement of her body. These powerful and relentless marks also give physical form to imagination, memory and psychological transition. Consalvo’s work is held in collections including Artbank, Allens Law Firm, Warner Music Australia and private collections within Australia, UK, Germany and Canada.
