RICH MAMA
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..

BACK TO TNLP!
And finally relax..

 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 ...







And.. here they are..
