Tightness in red

“..Dell’Orto components invoke the suturing of time and space, the knitting together of a universe which threatens to collapse and implode, bursting at its seams. The artist collages her objects in a way which heightens the overall feel of each piece, parlaying a tension, which is aroused through the artist’s sensitized evocation of vulnerability and tenderness.”

Dense metal surfaces in Tightness in Red create a discomforting feel of compression and turbulence, energetic proclivities that seem to hover over the small pencil-drawn image of knitting needles embedded in plexiglass.
