Madame Moth, Donna Abbate, 2021
Donna plays the mad scientist with art. A surrealist at heart, she juxtaposes forms based on nature-known and unknown, microscopic and macroscopic. Her artwork is an orchestration of chaos: colors, shapes, plants, landscapes, animals, figures, collected and layered into a two dimensional spirit. Like a spirit, each piece has a sense of self.
Whether a stately portrait, a dreamlike landscape or a study of flora, the images are infused with a vital force that challenges the veil of reality. These illustrations become a way for Donna to celebrate the mysterious and fantastic elements of our planet, asking the viewer to look again at their surroundings and contemplate the way things could be if there were no limits on our natural world.
Donna has been conjuring up works of an inexplicable nature for Cactus Gallery since 2009.
