Mako Lomadze - On the Cutting Room Floor
7 – 23 September 2023
On the Cutting Room Floor features the latest experimental pieces by Mako Lomadze.
Mako Lomadze is a contemporary artist from Georgia. She graduated from Tbilisi State Academy of Arts with both a BFA and a MFA. She is regularly exhibited both in Georgia and abroad and has participated in various artist residencies.
She currently works in her studio in Tbilisi. Her works are housed in the Museum of Contemporary Art in Cosenza, and in private collections in Europe, Canada and the United States.
Lomadze mainly works in traditional media, with oil paint being her most optimal. Her work is based on an internal dialogue, critical issues in the subconscious, dreams and attitudes toward the world. Her works are permeated with symbolism with the aim being to inspire people to see aesthetic beauty in an accessible visual language, which goes beyond the first impression.
Her work is in line with her complex approach to issues. The pieces are dreamy, illustrated with profound feelings while remaining non-descriptive and ambiguous. She is able to visually convey a tragic sense of existence.
