Chisara Vidale is a London based emerging artist whose work examines our place within the natural world. Working predominantly as a painter, her practice is an exploration of the complex intersections between the anthropological, the natural and the metaphysical. Her visual language investigates the sense of fluidity between the land and our visceral experience of it, reimagining this world without the physical boundaries between self and nature. Within this realm there is no hierarchy of being, so fungi, plants and animals all exist within the same collective experience, and our human-superior modes of thinking are dismantled.
Chisara has a solo exhibition of works entitled 'Synergy' in Jupiter's offices for their clients through November of 2022 to January 2023. Early in 2021 Chisara was selected as one of the winners of the Responsa Foundation’s ‘This Difference’ Bookmark competition and her painting titled ‘Crocus’ was shortlisted for the Glyndebourne ‘Tour Art Competition 2021’ and was shown in the competition’s online exhibition themed ‘Forces of Nature’.
