ADELINA LA VITA
Adelina is an illustrative ceramic artist based in Ngunnawal/Ngambri Country (Canberra). She utilises clay to create playful sculptures, and vibrant decorative functional objects inspired by contrastive landscapes, flora and fauna.
Combined with screen-printed underglaze transfers and sgraffito techniques, Adelina’s vibrant palette is reminiscent of coastal seascapes and mountain ranges, stylised animals all inspired by Japanese art and the 'wagara' meaning of imagery. Featuring black outlines on the image transfers, together with royal blue and azure, aqua, apple green and chartreuse hues, they combine and harmonise together to create an expressive and distinctly vivid artwork.
