I am a physicist and a painter who sculpts in light, plastic and metal. Using materials, some of which have been discarded, forms inspired by nature, the human condition and scientific breakthroughs are melted and reshaped into Quantum Sculptures changing in colour as you circle them. This relationship between the observer and observed is not limited to the quantum world and can be applied to our increasingly disconnected relationship with our planet home. As we enter an Anthropocene Era, my changing perspective has led to a search for a 'Brave New World Aesthetic', in which the old harmonises with the new and both are in resonance with that which is human; empathy and compassion.

Upcoming 2018: 

February- Uniqlo Tate Late: Co curator and artist with SLWA's Pillow talk

March- Speaking at Flux events: Transendence and The Search for a Brave New World Aesthetic

April- Art 180: Anderson Contemporary Gallery, New York

July- Public Art piece: 'The Wellbeing Walk' with MTART Agency and Camden Council

 

“Pradissitto offers up a fractured visual plane upon which pictorial traditions and art theory meet with Quantum theory and scientific methods. She welcomes us to the Quantum Age with an astoundingly proficient artistry that leaves one embodied, empowered and present in a world that will oft leave us unanchored and lost. Where subject meets light meets object, so too does Art meet Science.”
