Plurale, Femminile

STUDIOVENTUNO TATTOO &ART GALLERY presenta PLURALE, FEMMINILE 
Group Show a cura di Francesco Petrosino ed Elena Di Legge con il contributo critico di Carlo Di Legge Official Preview per “The Other Side of The Ink” 8\9\10 marzo Roma - Hotel Ergife

Studioventuno vi porge un invito a spiare dal buco della serratura, con delicatezza, per non disturbare troppo, il laboratorio di un'artigiana che confeziona un abito. Oltre la porta, delle donne persuase ad esprimere liberamente il proprio essere, la propria passione più grande, la più grande ossessione e stregoneria, la propria arte. E' forse un'ambizione enorme desiderare di poter definire quel fotogramma dipinto, tentare di evocare, per ciascuna, quell'abito che meglio veste la propria anima. I colori scorrano pure attraverso luci ed ombre, seguendo una declinazione necessariamente plurale, femminile, 21 artiste, 21 donne. 
Il femminile si unisce alla differenza, nel corso della storia delle donne – verità della differenza, nell’ambito della verità universale, per cui la storia delle donne è insieme a quella degli uomini, è storia dell’umanità. La differenza al femminile si tesse di dolore e di espressione artistica, a partire almeno da Saffo e finendo a Sylvia Plath, per non dire che due delle grandi, plurali, diversissime manifestazioni autentiche; ma, certo, il tessuto della differenza femminile include anche grandi trame di gioia e – alla base – la trama della vita, se la donna è per eccellenza tutto questo, e, nei simbolismi di tutti i tempi, oltre che divinità terribile, anche affermazione di vita e di vittoria sulla morte. 
Come i momenti di dolore e di oppressione, anche i connotati della gioia e della vita, che ovviamente li superano, quindi tutte le manifestazioni dell’esistenza al femminile, si esprimono nell’arte e nella poesia – come nella pittura. 

Plurale, Femminile. con: Valentina Zummo, Claudia Ottaviani, Luisa Montalto, Giuditta Solito, Madame Decadent, Gerlanda Di Francia, Grozdana Tilotta, Erica Calardo, Ania Tomicka, Ixie Darkonn, Antonella Caraceni, Sasha Prosperi, Miss Salopette (Mery Sinatra), Alessandra Fusi, Elena Di Legge, Diletta Lembo, Elena Adinolfi, Elena Cermaria, Amanda Toy, Silvia Faieta, Caterina Baldi.

E.T Enfants Terribles special preview @ florence tattoo convention


Enfants Terribles
2-3-4 November 2012
 Studio 21 Tattoo & Art Gallery introduces a project dedicated to "terrible children." The essential idea is childhood considered as an universal theme, an age that everyone went through and that for everybody has been a fundamental passage, that has left a strong mark in our lives. For many adults childhood is almost a displayed mental state, wanting to hang on to it at any price so that they don’t let slip away the natural essence of things and to escape the superstructures often imposed by the adulthood. To such point that is a very recurring topic in the artistic world of pop surrealism that could even be almost the emblem of it, the childhood is triumphantly welcomed and also brought out by Studio 21. Our main interest is to stress on terrible children, frightening children, almost small extraterrestrial ones. Are they observing our world from another time, from another space, with an enigmatic or lost look? Accusatory or polemic? Often disillusioned? When we are in front of them it seems that they question us speechless, as if we were in front of a mirror. What does this vision raise in the spectator? A mirror is undoubtedly an invitation to reflect. The artist in this case has the privilege and the freedom to invent to stimulate the spectator’s reflection in some directions.

 The artists taking part at the Florence Tattoo convention's exposition are: MARK RYDEN,RON ENGLISH, MATTEW PRICE,ALBERTO CORRADI, MISS SALOPETTE (MERY SINATRA) ,VALENTINA ZUMMO,ANIA TOMICKA,FABIO MORO (MOROF),OHMYDOLLS,YARI DI GIAMPIETROGROZDANA TILOTTA,LUISA MONTALTO,GERLANDA DI FRANCIA,DIAVU',ERICA CALARDO,PELIN SANTILLI + SASHA PROSPERI.


I spent the best time in Florence with the lovely gallerists Francesco and Elena and with my 2 special friends and talented artists Erica and Ania. we drunk a lot, red the tarots, talk about future projects and It was AWESOME!

Interview with Miss Salopette by Amy Goh for Eyestrane


The canadian artist Amy Goh interviewed me for the very cool site Eyestrane.com
and please leave me a feedback or share!

here a preview:

Tell us more about the girls you draw. Are they purely figurative, or do they have individual stories? Are they individual people, or are they mythic archetypes of our time? 

The girls I draw have a sweet, childish look but embody a contradiction. Their kawaiiness is misleading. They'€™re gloomy, alienated, confused, sometimes apathetic. For me, they express the unease of my generation. I strongly relate to that. It'€™s not by accident that I put them into empty contexts, flat colours stressing the vacuity. It'€™s like they'€™re suspended in time and space. I want to depict a feeling, more than a story. I like to insert elements that underline their mood. Sometimes it'€™s an animal -€“ their "€œinappropriate" guiding animal - usually felt as repellent. Larvae, insects, cockraches, snails. Sometimes it is an object, like a garbage can, dynamite, a cutter, an alien spaceship, a cross... or a genetic or aesthetic anomaly, like conjoined twins, extra legs, amputated arms or missing parts, like eyes. These elements generally emphasize the mood, but sometimes they come from stories I read on the internet and the thoughts and discordant feelings they bring me.
