Elena Vijoli Artist Bio:

"The symbolism of Elena Vijoli's works expresses itself through the contrast between a precise, minimal economy of the sign and a continuos research on technique and matter, which is put into concrete form by the use of materials such as stone, glass, leather and different types of metals. Vijoli's minimal sign and material redundancy are continuously counter chanting, and that gives her the possibility to find a proper harmony of the opposites: the lightness of the divine message emerges in the purest works such as "Lessons from God" or "Apocryphal Writings", while the irony and love for the heaviness of human things explode in works such as "Family" and "Brainstorming". The personal liberation from the obsession with "the perfect painting", which is well represented in the artist's formative path by the many years spent in important Orthodox churches and monasteries, is the ultimate aim of Vijoli's pictorial game. A game which is grounded in biblical references ("The Way, the Truth and the Life") and little daily struggles and pleasures ("Making Love with the Wind"); a game whose rules are there to help us in our exploration of the wonders of an apparently alien garden that, on the contrary, is human, all too human." Paolo Cappelletti / Alien Garden
