BRIEF CRITICAL ESSAY BY ELISA BERGAMINO, ART CRITIC OF “ITALIA ARTE” AND “MIIT – INTERNATIONAL MUSEUM OF MODERN AND CONTEMPORARY ART” OF TORINO (ITALY)
Ecstasy of Chili
Oil on canvas, prepared with golden acrylic base
79 x 81 cm (2015)
One of the preferred themes of the artist is the Portrait, interpreted as an introspection of the Ego, mirror of the soul and symbol of the spirit. This can be appreciated by observing this joyful and ironic title portrait, which confirms love for culture, tradition, history and offers us a symbolic icon, between popular believes and excellent execution technique.
The Cube of Vermeer
Oil and Acrylic on Canvas
77 x 91 cm (2014)
For Vermeer the exterior light is simply the reflex of the light returned by objects, which are inundated by that imperceptible magic, almost a replica of the subjective essence of reality. This enchanted realism becomes a metaphor of life, so evident and at the same time so untouchable in its inscrutable depth. Giovanna drives us to a fascinated world, to the discovery on unknown worlds.
