Pinus pinea, pino marittimo. These trees are part of my childhood: early afternoon in summer time, looking for pine nuts with my small hands, touching the hot hot gravel. The scent of pine needlse, le stelle di notte e l'umido la musica l'Adriatico .. I don't want to go to sleep.. I don't want to go to sleep..
My canvas will be guests in Giulia's wall.. they were born in the
country and now they'll finally join Amsterdam, looking out at
Rozengracht's vitality from TNLP window... Some of them are allready
there, some others are ready to leave my studio in Oudegracht.
And I'll finally relax, after the last touches ...
ART AND CRAFT MIX MEDIA ART
acrylic tissues and beads
on wood panels
Tricot, crochet, knitting, beads, earrings, necklaces.. there's a
revolution of manufacturing women (but not only).. we are winking to our
grandmothers and aunts, we are learning the art of the old dressmakers
and craftsmen. When I was a child I often heard the espression ''ha le
mani d'oro - she has gold hands'', which meant great admiration for
those creations. Now that tissues and wires and material elements have
had input in art, inside canvas and installations, maybe they are
becoming art themselves. I am fascinated from their particular language
since they can be so sugestive and evocative ...
