Salt Sugar Poison, a new exhibition by Tara Costello ’98, explores the malleability of perspective, subtle shifts in time merging to create geometric depictions of a singular point of place. Each painting functions as a map, a document of experience, of vast landscapes both familiar yet unrecognizable.
Costello’s paintings build up layers of venetian plaster and pigment creating landscapes of raw precision. The works capture the synthesizing properties that churn under the surface of nature's formations with sharp intersections of bold controlled lines piercing across these chemical reactions.
