PERSONAL EXHIBITION BY STEFANIA QUARTIERI
In the art of feeling and building, the spirit and matter, thoughts and substance are brought together and blended, then travel together along a path of beauty and death, joy and pain… Stefania Quartieri was born in Santa Croce sull’Arno near Pisa, where she still lives and works today. After starting out in figurative art, she switched her focus to non-representational areas. In addition to painting, she uses a wide range of materials to give visibility and substantiality to profound motion… “On a canvas buttressed with nursing materials, gauzes and bandages, the mood is established by intermittent, fitfully placed thicknesses that produce a worn-out, threadbare look in her works, giving an impression of striking consumption and concealed anguish…” (Maria Rita Montagnani). Since 1992, she has taken part in a constant succession of solo and group exhibitions in Tuscany and elsewhere that have met with interest and praise from critics.
Exhibition prepared by Emanuele Horodniceanu
The works will remain on display until 18 October
