The short-term naive

Early works by self-taught

Early works by self-taught - WOODNS

The first  pictures were certainly naive, and this can be deduced from the first oil painting still preserved in the house of her father. This picture, as can be seen in the image on the right, shows a certain vibrancy in colors typical naive art, as well as the assembly of the objects it contains and their proportion, not lacking, however, a shy and improved perspective . Perspective rapidly evolving as you can see below in charcoal dating always in the early days. Operates this not quite perfect from the point of view assumed by the proportional content, but valuable for the almost perfect interpretation of light. Not bad for the first works by self-taught, works well and without any cultural contamination (as indeed it is in the original naive) do not belong to a specific style, but already in the first denoting a steady hand and a very clear idea of the concept of painting.

Event not to be missed! Nadia Turella and Giovanna Sacchetti, two contemporary artists whose works are inspired by various themes imbued with present are on display. Arguments and questions, of a moral and current nature that although they do not want, concern us and touch us closely in this time and in our journey. Nadia, guides us and leads us with the significant and beautiful works, through antithetical worlds. Lands in which elements like, friendship and bullying, the right to childhood and violence against women and children, the discriminating color of the skin and the beauty of the colors of mother nature and its respect are contrasted. Giovanna with her enchanting works accompanies us and guides us in her enchanted world, made up of trees and figures, defined by her as "angelic" that speak of emotions, loneliness, anger and protest against all forms of violence. His figurative missive urges us to understand that we are all one and we must live in harmony with everything, respecting other beings. So the message of both enclosed in the title of the exhibition is "Beyond" as a wish ... Because there is always hope that everything will improve. F.B.W.
