LIVES AND WORKS
DATE OF BIRTH
Silvia Rossi, born and living in Lugo, Ravenna, Italy. She graduated from the scientific high school, but at the end of school she understood that it was not the right path and completely changed her address by attending a course in graphics for a year which led her to work for three months in Portugal. Back in Italy she started working as a graphic designer. He started painting in 2007 as a hobby and since then he has never stopped, indeed his passion has become increasingly important and continues hand in hand with personal and professional growth. The desire to do and create has also led her to start a new path in the goldsmith's art.
I love what the eye does not see. That "something hidden" that creates depth and inte-rest. In my works I explore unlikely scenarios combining abstract elements with realistic figures, fawns and antelopes but also palm trees and forests.
During these years and inspired by my many journeys, I am taking my art to a more intense and intimate level through a search for the sublime, for what is lost to sight, a set of wonder and tension that shakes the soul of 'observer. Apparently tranquil landscapes but always with something hidden and imperceptible, abstract images of perfect life that is not as perfect as it seems. Stimulating the mind of the observer to a more profound and psychological approach is the goal I pursue: to glimpse what is human reality, the most obscure and profound feelings that are not immediately seen but which, now more than ever, are part of of everyday life: loneliness, a sense of estrangement, mental limits, anxiety and educational cages.
The attempt, the desire, the continuous search for freedom from every scheme in real life is what I want to represent.
The continuous desire to let the color go to the free gesture of the brush and the constant attraction for a rigor of lines and geometries creates an alternation of styles between abstractionism and post-minimalism with paintings where I represent the cities, the full metropolises of people in their micro-worlds where the windows, represented by so many colored squares or overlapping lines, become the only contact with the outside.
Even the use of different materials reflects this continuous alternation: wood and canvas, acrylics and materials, brushes and spatulas and lately cotton threads dragged instead of the brush.
