Pauline Galiana, Talkative (x42) Campus #1-42, 2017, Gouache on paper, 12" x 9" (30cm x 22cm), Series of 42 drawings
A concept of poetic narration runs through Pauline Galiana's multi-disciplinary artistic practice. She uses diverse media and social inputs in an effort to actively engaged the viewer in a visual conversation. Her instinctive color sense is a driving force as she employs leftover stages of her own work—ideas, forms, emotions or materials in seemingly endless permutations and reconfigurations. Galiana reflects on her sources, both ideas and materials, to explore how creative energy is reused and reinvented.
