Paintings


The work originates from the pictures of the early 1900s, while the subject is decontextualised, reworked and redefined until it reveals an anonymity that distinguishes it only as a physical presence for a perpetual and undefined period of time.
The painting itself is characterised by a swift and determined execution, alla prima, in which the pictorial fault is not contemplated and takes on expressive value and technical incisiveness.
The outrightness and the will to highlight the expression of the moment and the subject depicted, is sought after.
The act of painting takes on the value of emotion and reveals that which is darker than matter.
  • Elisa Filomena - Eden, Casa Vuota, acrilico su tela, particolare B1, 2021
    The pictorial narration takes place in a stream of consciousness without preparatory sketches and by painting directly with the brush, alla prima, figures, landscapes and animals that form, by means of gestures and promptness, the painting’s body of work deeply felt and lived with freedom and urgency to create.
  • Elisa Filomena - Le muse, acrilico su tela, 140x130cm, 2020 particolare
    The work starts from pictures of the early 1900s or pictures of women of the 40s: the subject is decontextualised in order to reach a dimension less directed towards the characteristics of the person portrayed and also to reveal an anonymity that distinguishes it only as a physical, human presence.
  • Paintings that come into being by putting side by side instants and frames enclosing in a tale moments of a day or a lifetime. The painting itself is characterised by a swift and determined execution, alla prima, in which the pictorial fault is not contemplated and takes on expressive value and technical incisiveness.
