Giannattasio’s works are the attempt to eternalise stolen instants of the constant movement of the natural world. Her sensitivity to the dimensions of space stems from her early formation as an architect. As an artist, she breaks the rules to transform physical reality into an evocative and emotional one, which is both seen and felt. The study of light, colour and the organisation of space acts as a trigger to call up the familiar, the known, and the lived, both in time and Space.
In Giannattasio’s paintings, the landscape offers the opportunity for the eye to become a filter, a treshold between the canvas and the soul. Her approach to abstraction maintains a tension between the real and the imagined through a working process that embraces the behaviour of the matter deployed, always allowing for accident and incident to define a work as not so much finished but complete.
This is particularly true in the series Room With a View where Giannattasio breaches the bowndaries between abstraction and figuration as a combination between memory and apparition.
The materiality of her works–acrylic, sand and layers of gold, amongst others–signals a persistent reminder that the inner space within us must be in constant balance with the outer world. This bond with nature and the perception of the natural environment has ties to her lived experience in the family nursery, where she bases her studio when working in Rome.
