‘”My research is to give shape and color to images, that filtered by emotions, live a metaphysical dimension that search for representation”

Since 2004, the artist has investigated issues such as war and indifference to the others suffering with the Cambialamore project, with which she was invited as honor guest in the international festival of Lodz in Poland, Killing Paradise. Subsequently, the awareness of the real is reworked in another dreamlike dimension, with the particular perspective of a utopia judged as possible: beauty, art, can re-build reality and free ourselves from so many inner and exterior horrors. The following work is the search of the divine in everyday life: the struggle between Enlightenment and Darkness, D.I.O., exhibited in Rome, in Monte Carlo and in Capalbio, and the video selected for Premio Celeste. Comimg back form a trip to Burkina Faso a fragmentary vision is born, similar to a flash, which sums up travel souvenirs, moments of the present and unexpected memories. Her gaze later changed. The new works tell what the artist sees, hears while walking through the city. With these works she was invited to Syria with a personal exhibition in Damascus and to participate ito an international art symposium. In later works the new perception is suspended, contemplated and colored. You can see wings, mysteriously resting on the wayfarers, as symbols of our timid and colored aspirations. With these works she was invited to exhibit in Greece. In 2016 she organized an exhibition sponsored by the Rome office of Banca Generali, which collects her projects of the last 12 years. Meanwhile the plexiglass disappears and ihas been replaced by resin. The presence of female subjects predominates, with evanescent and fluid bodies, women that enclose a magnificent and magnificent area. Later we see the figuration of subjects laden with new symbolism and an emerging sign power, mostly young women and children, flow directly from that limbo between the conscious and the unconscious.In the 2020 production, an immaterial light, a living hope cloaks the latest works. They exude a re-appropriated feeling translated into suspended atmospheres which speak to us of conviviality, friendship and passion. Thus we see close faces of a man and a woman emerge, starters of a romantic evening, or female profiles immortalized in a aura of metaphysical harmony, a real fresh breeze for the spirit. A glass of emerald red wine embodies the prelude to a possible emotional transport.
