Joella Wheatley calculates, maps, measures and positions highly structured lines and objects that embody an enclosed space, hinting towards human activity and opening doors into the processes, complexities and voids of solitude, through perspective projection. Wheatley’s paintings invite viewers to detach themselves from the notion of normality, question their reason for being and confront isolation.
