Dacia Gallery and Contaminate NYC is pleased to present “Make a Wish”, a solo-show by Italian artist Claudia Trombin. Through multi-media paintings, watercolors, and installations revisiting the fascinating and complex language of the unconscious, Claudia’s seductive yet unsettling creations aim to bewilder the viewer, generating doubts and questions, unleashing desires and dream-like visions. In her attempt to shape the invisible – emotions, feelings, fears, obsessions, reveries – she creates imaginary spaces, juggling reality and fantasy, the ordinary and the unique. Inspired by Surrealism principles and fascinated by psychoanalysis and archetypes nature, Claudia develops her artwork along ambivalent, symbolic, and philosophical themes. Dragonflies and dandelions, flowers composed of a seed head and hundreds of smaller florets, become her inspiration to materialize this process. Light metal filaments ending with corollas modeled as dragonfly wings spread from the seed head - a led lamp - symbol of energy and life that will extinguish with time. The wings, humans’ spiritual side, structured like a unique and delicate netlike grid, act like a DNA imprint embedded in our life essence, guiding our imagination and intuition. At death, like the dandelion florets, the light dies and the invisible product of our spirit leaves our corporeal body by detaching and spreading its wings to disseminate into the world.

Born in Italy in 1978, Claudia Trombin lives and works between Turin and New York. She holds a B.A. at the Accademia Albertina di Belle Arti in Turin. She exhibited in Italy, with her first solo show “Ali di Carta” at the Cavallerizza Reale in Turin in 2009 and the group show “Portraits” at the Accademia Albertina di Belle Arti in Turin. In 2002, she won the first prize for the realization of the project “Totem”, and she participated in the group show “Acquerelli” at the Promotrice di Belle Arti in Turin. Her work has been exhibited in Europe and New York in several groups and solo shows, such as “Triumph” at Dacia Gallery, New York, (2010), “Alter Ego 2.0” at Contesta Rockhair, New York, (2011), “Bodies” and “Temporary States” at GeM Gallery, New York (2011), and “New Generation”, Palazzo Pisani, Vicenza (2012). She joined Contaminate’s network in June 2010.
