Ornament, Lament (Collab. with Rebecca Ladds) | 2014

Common ground between Florentine artwork and contemporary illustration manifests itself in this installation through the use of black ink on white walls. Kat Gomboc and Rebecca Ladds create bold graphic images with intricately detailed line-work as an ode to the interior aesthetic of Renaissance building while hinting at influences like intaglio, tattoo, and comics. Subtly they place Toronto signifiers among this imagery, inviting the viewer to uncover them as they scan the space.
