A solo exhibition showcasing the most recent creations of Scottish sculptor Karla Black (born in 1972, Alexandria) is on view at three exhibition spaces in Galleria Raffaella Cortese, Milan through February 25, 2017.

Black is reflected upon as one of the most innovative contemporary artists of her generation, attempting to create a form of lyrical self-sufficient sculpture, predisposed by psychoanalysis and feminism in its impression on visual art. For the current exhibition, she has produced an array of abstract sculptures, wisely organized on the surface or hanged from the ceiling, presenting a blend of everyday elements comprising of powder, cotton wool along with more customary means such as plaster, chalk, acrylic paint, paper, and cellophane. Her compositions tend to deal with material and objective experience as an approach towards interacting and comprehending the domain surrounding us.

The exhibition is on view at Galleria Raffaella Cortese, Via Alessandro Stradella, 7, 20129 Milan, Italy.
