ABOUT

Chisara Vidale is a London based emerging artist whose work examines our connections to each other and the natural world. Working predominantly as a painter, her practice is an exploration of the complex intersections between the anthropological, the natural and the metaphysical. Her visual language explores the sense of fluidity between the land and our visceral experience of it; acting as a kind of mirror to the human experience of interacting with changes in light and biology.

Her work reimagines this world without the physical boundaries between the artist and nature. In this space she explores the emotional and spiritual interactions with subtle changes in environment. Within this realm there is no hierarchy of being, so fungi, plants and animals all exist within the same collective experience. These works look to dismantle our human-superior modes of thinking. Visualising this realm helps her to envision a future beyond the climate and biodiversity crisis that is deeply respectful of all forms of life and consciousness.

Recently her interest in and love of horses was rekindled by the works of Franz Marc; his depictions of animals fully integrated into their landscapes. As a result her current paintings focus on the holistic interactions horses have with the land, depicting them in a way that acknowledges their potential as spiritual, conscious beings, navigating the shifting seasons. The horses have also become more symbolic as this work develops, creating their own mythological realm that is deeply rooted in the British landscape.
