Thea Djordjadze’s paintings are cast wooden frames made of performatively moulded plaster. Her intuitive and sculptural approach to painting transforms the perception of painting into that of a poetic wall sculpture. These paintings are exemplary of Djordjadze’s physiological practice, with corporeal sweeping movements clearly visible amid their painted plaster surfaces. Taking a physical approach to production, Djordjadze gives her works an anthropomorphic dimension via their gestural traces and bodily scale. At the same time, she acknowledges the original intended design of the materials she uses and lets them speak for themselves, informing the painting’s resulting shapes and composition.
