at dalla Rosa Gallery
Francesca Ricci, Tabula Impressa, 2012
Cross Section/01 inaugurates a series of exhibitions highlighting recent work by dalla Rosa's artists, a snapshot of their ongoing practice. The show aims to emphasise the unifying characteristics of the artists, either stylistic or conceptual.
Caroline Kha was born and studied Fine Art and Science in Australia before moving to London and starting a one-year recidency at the Florence Trust in 2009. Her work was exhibited in Sydney, Tokyo, and London—her paintings and collages explore archetypal imagery, place and identity.
Kasper Pincis studied at Camberwell College of Art, Goldsmiths, and Royal Academy Schools, he took part in exhibitions and projects in Turin, Berlin, Kraków, London. Although his practice ultimately manifests itself in the abstract, it primarily borrows formal aspects and materials from literature, academic theory and bureaucracy by using media such as newsprint, typewriters, carbon paper, pencil, and letraset.
After studying Stage Design in Florence, Francesca Ricci moved to London and immersed herself in fringe theatre and art world. She showed in Italy and United Kingdom and has been active for years in the independent publishing scene. Francesca is part of Bozhinov/Ricci, a writer/artist duo sharing a communal field of interests, aesthetics and a cross-disciplinary approach to their research and work.
Jeremy Evans is a multidisciplinary artist who works with video, audio, paper, and performance. After studying at the Sir John Cass School of Art and Chelsea College of Art Jeremy was part of the New Contemporaries (2008) and was selected for the exhibition Lines of Desire at the Oriel Davies Gallery (Newtown).
Greek Artist and curator Christina Mitrentse studied at Chelsea College of Art and University of Greenwich. She has exhibited extensively in galleries, museums and public spaces including Liverpool Biennial, XV Biennale de Mediterranean Thess/niki-Rome, ICA (London), NDSM-werf Amsterdam, Macedonian Museum of Contemporary Art, Departure Foundation (London). Christina's drawing practice is highly descriptive and meticulous, it serves as a tool for critical enquiry—mapping time, philosophy and ultimately the construction of discrete worlds.
