The contribution and involvement of the Municipality of Vitorchiano was very important, thanks to which it was possible to use the magical place Sala dei Capitelli in the complex of S. Agnese. The medieval structure of S. Agnese is the setting perhaps best suited to highlight the works present at the event. The exhibition features 14 artists who approach nature with different and interesting techniques, each in their own style.
Flowers and gardens are told, living in the skillful strokes of the palette of two outstanding Roman artists Ines Acciarrini, born in the Marche region, with her delicate flowers and soft colors and Bianca Rita Teatini, Roman, with an impressionistic touch, brings flowers to life with the thickness of the material. Angelo Barilari sculptor from Calabria engraves the cherry tree that brings out the female forms with the work “Nature is woman and mother”.
Vittoria Baldieri’s poetics draws us into the forest with the first work “The Violinist” (oil on canvas), and with the second work “Sea, mystery and magic” (painted with acrylic). Maria Rosaria Verrone, artist from Cilento, represents nature suspended in the sky as a goddess surrounded by clouds and mimosas, symbolically paying homage to all women. Franca Nadani, a Roman artist, surprises us with the triptych “Cagnolini” made in oil on an old restored door, the second work with “Children playing in the cellar” painted in oil on a restored old table, and the third work with ” Cuccioli e the swing “the constant reference tells us about the poetry of an old country age.
Piera Fonzo paints his first work “Green garden” that introduces us to the very green effect of a wonderful bracket of tropical humidity, and with the second work he takes us into the transparency of a cascade of water entitled “Fresh waters ” (both oil) paintings). Also present is the work of Maestro Mario Perrotta with the work entitled “Eve first mother of nature”, which surprises us with the powerful feature that describes the primal femininity of Eden (oil on canvas). In the two oil paintings by Alessio Papa, art becomes classic and sensual with its fantastic and refined dream world. Donatella di Francia, tells us a story about a winged girl immersed in water in the work “The Nymph of the Forest” (oil on canvas).
Maria Rita Mogiatti enchants us with her work “Cone flowers” for the range of its extraordinary colors from violet to blue to pink. Toni Morelli immerses us in a seascape with a deserted and paradisiacal beach with the work “La caletta” (oil on canvas). Elena Cappellini with the work “Dreams from the past” reminds us with her earthy colors that nature is also primitive, with its suggestive and mysterious substance.
The exhibition closes with Isabella Bianchini’s paintings, where the artist talks about nature, which is always present in her works, through her dreamlike visions made on large canvases with the 3 works “The Last Sun”, where the nostalgia of beauty is it blends in the context of a naked young woman on horseback, among the waves of the sea at sunset, as an escape from reality or in a dreamlike and adventurous dimension; “Goddess of the deep sea”, where a gaze from the bottom of the sea watches us sternly, and from which the eyes seem to want us to become aware of the massacres, and of the polluting drift of plastic. Finally, “Selvaggia me”, where the human essence has not yet become conscious of itself and is mysteriously identified with primeval nature (acrylic technique).
