Adria Mirabelli graduated from The Ontario College of Art and Design in 2015 with a major in Drawing and Painting and minor in Fibre. Her practice is driven by an experimental approach to mark-making whereby she integrates textile manipulation processes with drawing to create large-scale, site-specific works on silk, felt, vinyl and paper. Her process focuses on a cycle of collection, preservation, and distortion. In Adria’s work cloth is viewed as an emotive material, which can simultaneously represent movement and stillness, emptiness and fullness. Concepts of time, memory, and nostalgic longing are of interest. Adria has created site-specific installations at Gallery 1313, Xpace Cultural Centre and Artscape Youngplace and was a resident at The Roundtable Residency in 2015.
