Gaia Fugazza’s work is primarily interested in the routines and choices that shape daily life. Figurative images relating to intimate yet common scenes are set in intriguing and highly textured pictorial spaces. Bodies touch and gesture in delicate layers of pigment on glass, and in lines scratched into wood and filled with wax. An aesthetic and narrative emerges that is set in a deliberately ambiguous time and place.
