Avalanche

Carmela Weiss’ new paintings appear as sites prior to a disaster. Their coloration is demure and pastoral, varying between grey-purples, creams, and baizes, and ostensibly they appear very calm, perhaps too calm.

Weiss locates figures in snow-bound sceneries, amongst slender, naked toped trees. Occasionally, they seem human, portraying a singular appearance; sometimes they resemble monochrome shadows, which indicate a present absentee, kind of a lacks form or human void.
