This event has ended.

Fromboluti’s compositions posit unresolved narratives. Hinting at the macabre, they are populated by animal skeletons, desiccated flowers, bugs, discarded oyster shells, the delicate carcass of a small bird; yet she also strikes a blithe note with verdant flora, a string of pearls, and even a box of chocolates. Fromboluti elevates her work to a new level, as she invites the outside in, choosing dramatic skyscapes as the backdrop to these exquisitely painted still lifes. These skyscapes are painted with a looser hand, conveying movement. Foreboding clouds brood beyond what appears to be a mantelpiece, lending a sense of fragility to the objects, as one imagines they may be swept from their perch by a strong gust. The dramatic impact of the work is heightened by a long horizontal support, inferring a monumental landscape with a wide, uninterrupted horizon line.
