Arabella Caccia is currently busy with her new body of work “The Thread”, paintings and drawings of nude figures.
The figures float alone in undefined spaces. They evoke a quiet, introverted mood of contemplation. Some hold a red thread in their hand, an object steeped with symbolic reference.
The nude figures appear alone, balanced in space, naked without the trappings of the material world, apart from their own nudity.
They are free in their unencumbered nakedness . They are aware of their own presence, their aloneness, their existence. They simply are.
Arabella is aiming at completing “The Thread” body of work mid 2013 which will be exhibited at Everard Read gallery Cape Town.
