Alana Di Giacomo combines sculpture, painting and conceptual assemblages. Her work centres around collecting and distilling information by interfacing and sensing with place, architecture and culture.
Progressing her framework collages and paintings the artist reimagines a new conversation (through material exploration) between the past and future at Goolugatup Heathcote. Working with disparate materials and arrangements combining found and constructed elements such as beeswax, various metals and cast forms.
Complex violet greys, reds and yellows emerge from kaleidoscopic oil paintings into formal structures to create a sense of movement in the gallery that echoes its surrounding landscape.
Alana Di Giacomo is a multidisciplinary contemporary artist based in Fremantle. Di Giacomo received a Masters of Visual Art from VCA, Melbourne, and has a practice based in material exploration: "I am interested in how organic matter can disintegrate into abstract images as if one material passes into another form in an unstable manner. To explore a real physicality and movement contained within the works. As if walking around something and being confronted by its tactility, weight, texture, tension and decay.
