Oil colours, little bones and candyfloss

My friend Martina is an amazing writer and she studies Visual Arts and Curatorial Studies at Naba.
She wrote an article about my art and i feel so honoured and proud of how she amazingly described my art, her vision made me feel very happy :)

english version:
Miss Salopette’s desk is brimful: next to her oil colours you could find a can of candyfloss with little bones, which by the way remind of her sharp fingers a lot.

The characters Miss Salopette paints are usually children, sometimes girls. Their bodies are soft and their eyes round and big; their shape has the reassuring trait of infancy, but their gaze is vacuous. They are infant in their looks, and adult in their feeling.
Various objects orbit in the surrounding cosmos: puppets, sweets, eye bulbs, or guts, with a sweet cat eating them as they spill out of its owner’s belly, while she’s committing
harakiri. The figures are never placed in a precise setting, they’re suspended in time and space. Every one represents a feeling, a mood, or a moment.
There’s a movement which leads towards escapism and dream: but behind the empty eyes flows a clear feeling, so direct it takes you strongly back to reality.
Miss Salopette’s work is built on multiple references, like Eastern and Western iconography, horror and gore, childhood, cinema, deviations.

Miss Salopette (pseudonym of Mery Sinatra) was born in 1985 in Milan, where she studied, lives and works.
She spent a few months in Japan, and she wants to go back. Her techniques are drawing, and acrylic, oil and digital painting.

Thank you Martina :)
