Gabriella Giandelli – Mirabile Bestiarium
|Author||Cartoonmuseum Basel; Anette Gehrig|
|Publisher||Christoph Merian Verlag|
Giant songbirds, gigantic snails, storks the size of a room, and dogs as tall as houses roam through abandoned cities and dwellings. Silently and as a matter of course, they take the place of humans. But is everything perhaps not as peaceful as it seems? Italian artist Gabriella Giandelli’s subtly drawn stories interweave everyday life and reality with beauty, poetry, and mystery. Created with coloured pencil and pastel, her images are charged with fantastic situations that are at once dream-like, surreal, and magical. Hers is a richly coloured parallel universe with the power to open and expand our view.
