Costello has been developing an abstract language through painting, contemplating aspects of quiet places and the practice of painting as meditation. Working with rich Venetian plaster on wood panels with stainless steel trowels, she is particularly interested in the interplay of land, sky and the simplicity of geometric shapes. The malleability of layered plaster allows her to question the facets of time, light, and space. She paints to find beauty in the tension between the illusion of felt spaces and the primitive mark that created them.
