Serena Curmi moves into new territory with her latest body of work which explores the alpine landscape. Scenic views these are not, rather, like the old postcards which spiked her initial interest, these images conjure a wistfulness, a yearning for the remote and distant. Layers of oil are applied and scraped back and in certain works, finally encased in resin, mimicking the glazing over of a rock face or sheets of ice. Curmi’s minimal painting manages to evoke not only the uncharted places we might wish to reach but those uncharted feelings of longing and loneliness in our hearts.
