The project I would like to bring talks about nature and woman.
Nature is understood in some works as a subject portrayed, observed and described in every detail, which luxuriantly takes possession of the whole surface of the painting: in these cases the painting investigates its material and tactile qualities, giving us the most vivid characteristics.
On the other hand, when it is accompanied by female portraits and, in a bright green frame or background, accentuating the beauty of the figures, it suggests a second interpretation of the works and the concept of Nature that sinks its roots into the Ancient Mysteries and prehistoric cultures. Faithful representatives of the Earth, women are one with Nature and Nature itself is testimony to the essence of the feminine. Represented by portraits of women, it refers to its connotation of Mother who envelops and protects, giving life and nourishment, spark that gives rise to external and internal behaviors and harmony.
The female figure appears immersed in a dimension of peace and tranquility, leaking a deep and almost mystical interpenetration with the surrounding Nature, barely mentioned. The instinct of gestures, the spontaneity of poses, the fascination of looks, do all the rest, telling of a vital and "natural" energy, a feminine essence that now becomes strength and determination now becomes a state of abandonment and quiet. Only portraits of women could with such force celebrate the sacredness, exalt all the power and enhance the sense of a Nature that is transformed into an escape from reality, safe shelter, a new world to discover.
