Oil on canvas
This is a unique work, hand-signed by the artist on the back of the painting.
Antonia Rodrian looks at objects and events, which occur in her life as a starting point for her work. Her oeuvre explores identity, through an observation of archaeology, language and reactions to social structures and political events. Such events or artefacts are seen as traces of human gestures where the performed actions remain unknown or are yet to be discovered. Rather than directly illustrating these actions, Rodrian uses her interest in formalism and the history of painting to overcome the barriers or expectations imposed by representation.
