London-based Gabriella Kosa explores the relationship between mankind and nature. Within her works, the small squares and geometric forms represent desire for control: how mankind wants to control its environment and surrounding nature.
Visiting the extremes – the spontaneous and planned, and the concrete and abstract – using a mixture of random strokes and carefully painted geometric shapes, Kosa aims for balance and harmony.
She draws inspiration from historical eras, highlighting the connection between ancient civilisations and their surrounding nature. Through exposing the symbolic meanings ancient tribes gave to certain animals, her goal is to stir the viewer into questioning themselves in new ways, and to find balance within. She says: “I believe that by connecting with nature, we can connect to our roots, our deepest parts, our true selves.”
