Ash Ferlito is a curious observer with a lust for life. Synthesizing her thoughts and feelings with imagery is a way to slow the spinning of wheels and delivering reflections on the weird, wonderful, horrible world by which Ferlito is both crushingly confused and eternally charmed. Ferlito’s work is underpinned by personal, yet open narratives that pull from a wide variety of sources: music, literature, craft traditions and nature.
Cartoons stain painted in reverse reveal gestural images exploring the emotional complexity of love,
life, worth, power and control. Other paintings offer tiny rendered subjects centrally grounded in a dark
grey space emitting a psychic power beyond their size.
