Chiara Albertoni - In the Eye of the Spider
The paintings, with their monocromatic style, seem to belong to a mythological dimention, in memory of a time that was, but will never return.
The canvas, almost untouched by the brush or artist's pencil, reflects a poetry, a stillness, taking with them a peace, a quiet emotion that can no longer recognizable in a world moving at one-hundred miles an hour, without contemplation or thought. But the artist has contemplated, observed, obsorbed and, related first to the subject of her work, and then the material of her art, bringing new life to each flower, each snowflake, and everything else she decides to compose.
Nature, therefore, resembles a dream. But hidden within each petal and each leaf, is the force and the hope of immortality and greatness of divine character which overcomes.
