Artemisia Gentileschi told by Emanuela Volpe
Artemisia in contemporary
The figure Artemisia, in the name of all that still manages to suggest, has been chosen by five women painters how to protect the name of a professional career, but also human, related to art: united by a similar cultural background and similar research profiles, from 1992 have formed a business partnership that is human and as a substrate common to their artistic personalities, without canceling each specific.
Journeying on different career paths and existential, have chosen to work together, and not only to collaborate, thinking that the dialectic constant of common themes could be a harbinger of stimuli for research and growth potential.
Francesca Bruni, Pea Trolli, Renata Ferrari, Emanuela Volpe Carelli and Rita Feri, mates were not studies nor the games: the school environment and the human that has grown not made from common ground.
Their meeting takes place in the atelier of a painter from Milan, Louis Lomanto, that each of them chose a gym full of improvement after a course of study began at art school and completed the academy or university.
It will be the work of the Socratic teacher, the availability of its space, the strength of his collegiate education to grant the perspective of collective work.
Everything has remained as a code number of search paths in the group, that arise from a common matrix to clearly recognizable declined, but, in five different creative paths.
“The focus of research is the figure and his universe”, “with a tonal painting made of sharp lines and strong colors and often antinaturalistici that humanity can be sophisticated and rarefied”(Emanuela Bonadeo)
