For the past decade, Beatrice Caracciolo has experimented with a variety of materials, starting with her trademark charcoal drawings in which collaged elements often come to the fore. She has developed a series of works in zinc, a medium which bears witness to the passage of time. Of greyish appearance—the colour of time gathered—the recycled zinc used by the artist is the product of chemical reactions provoked by its exposure to natural elements.
Beatrice Caracciolo’s work is evocative of areas of fluctuation between solid and fluid states of matter, perhaps as a way of declaring her obsession with the quasi—alchemical processes. It points to the fact that her work is very much concerned with ways to depict displacements of energy.
