Lori-Ann Bellissimo pitches colour against depth in her paintings. Through a gradual process of using acrylic and mixed media trapped under individual layers of optically clear water-based resin; a final layer of resin seals each painting’s surface. This technique explores the paradox of spatial depth on a flat surface as the apparent shifting of colour and form within the painting gauges perspective.

The internal logic of each piece is a buried concentration of the object as revealed through traces of under-painting. Each plane overlaps and interacts with the painting’s physical surface and the form it describes. Abstract elements of design float on the edge of representation but are transformed by a congruous perspective or colour scheme.
