Angelina Gualdoni uses painting to explore the conflicts and synchronicities between the built environment and landscape. One of Gualdoni's most recent bodies of work is the result of her research into utopian architecture; another series explores the phenomenon of dead malls. The environmental and architectural conditions represented by Gualdoni are unstable and shifting. The forces behind these shifts are ambiguous, never clearly malevolent nor benevolent.Her paintings engage in multiple dialogues: they consider the contemporary painterly, architectural, and environmental heritage of modernism, as well as the cyclical nature of construction and destruction.
