Three "Drawing Constructions" augment the banners in the gallery. Composite sculptural two-dimensional works comprised of photocopied graph-like scribbles, rice paper, and paper tape on recycled chipboard, these works feed Gelardi's organic infatuations through a series of technological filters and processes. Using a similar additive vocabulary of layers and patchwork, as well as a casual roughness, the resulting works are colder bitmapped or pixelated black-and-white derivations of her warmer nature-inspired textile work. They provide the architecture to her rambling garden.
