Francesca Gnagnarella

Biography

Internationally acclaimed artist Francesca Gnagnarella was born in Italy in 1984, and has been exhibiting in Paris and Rome since 2006. She moved to Perth, Western Australia in 2007, where she now works and lives with her Australian husband and Blue Heeler dog, Donny, in her private gallery concept space in North Fremantle. In the last few years, Gnagnarella regularly held solo exhibitions in Perth, Singapore and Hong Kong. She has been supported by a large following of art collectors including the Director of the Art Gallery of WA, Dr Stefano Carboni, who owns one of Francesca’s works as part of his private collection. Francesca’s works are recognized by art collectors for her use of 23 Carat Gold Leaf, which adds a hint of metallic contrast to her bold abstract pieces, and perfectly complements the earthy, ethereal tones of her dreamy landscapes.

Artist Statement

GNAGNARELLA’s colourful abstract paintings have a suggestive presence that evoke intense visual pleasure by appealing directly to the senses. The works reflect subtleties of colour, light, luminosity and form. The paintings are multi-layered and richly textured with complex under-coats.
