“This/Connection” consists of 8 works, mainly drawing based large scale paintings. 

All works are inspired by a derelict construction site in the post-industrial town of Drogheda. The lines Gina D. Petrea draws are as rational as possible with the exception of the blurred ones. Always on the lookout for balance in a composition, she continues to revisit perspectives as learned from the geometry classes, only to reconstruct it again and again after several deconstruction attempts. 

Using construction materials as elements of expression, she engages in an act of drawing lines repeatedly only to extend the motif and create the illusion of space. I used muted colours to build up a range of nuanced layers and tones, echoing the structures of other derelict sites I got to peep in since the pandemic started. The texture of the plasterboard is lending the painting a sculptural quality she thinks.

A spiritual, emotional and poetic space is proposed.
