Francesca Giraudi Artist Bio:
I have always thought that my painting was expressionist and German, intent on sounding the human being interiority, his less attractive and contradictory aspects. I am not interested in seeking out an aesthetic, in the name of a decorative art, with his changing canons and rules. I love bluntness and through painting I try to put it in practice and do it my flag. The honesty, however, highlights the irregularities, the angularities, the harshnesses, the fragilities and our and world’s shadows. Magic, in painting as in life, is being able to melt the opposites: lightness in weight, surface in depth. Colour in my work is the predominant component and towards it I feel curiosity and astonishment and a natural propensity. I never execute a preparatory drawing on the canvas and I start at once with colour. Initially it’s the acrylic and afterwards I add the oil to give more emphasis and three-dimensionality to a detail. Sometimes I mix both, making them become a paste that I spread with the spatula, the knife or the fingers. The white, which I essentially use to ‘close’ a work, is the most powerful ‘not-colour’ and gives me the idea of a certainty. Being affected by creating through colour, I try to control my stroke the less as I can, to give to the gesture in the painting matter a natural discomposure. As essentially a portrait painter, as figurative artist, in this age of existence and appear as an image, in the epoch of ‘self-mirroring’, I am attracted by digital art’s thousands of possibilities, because I find it modern and traditional at the same time; able, in spite of technology and his fast fruition and easiness of utilization, to preserve the mystery, the secret and thus to put a protective band around a Person, a Name, a Thing, a Place… My digital paintings’ starting point are my own pictures or those of whom are commissioning me a work. The pictures I work are not professional, rather characterized by technical defects and a poor quality, elements which give me the challenge to experiment new colours’ architectures and new compositions. Depending on the image I do relate to I carry out the digital work in a more or less painted, graphic or photographic way, always trying to realize wonderful metamorphosis within the original pictures‘ boundaries.
