Roberta Coni


Roberta Coni exhibited in Galleria Gagliardi from 2015 to 2016.

Since 2009, her artistic research has been geared toward large-scale paintings, in which the face often emerges from the shadows. An interpretation of the contemplative soul aimed in continuous introspection. Her work is characterized by it's strong realism while combining rougher materials. Female figures with poignant expressions, faces in the foreground, where, with detailed attention, almost lenticular, the brush focuses on the skin and eyes, and in particular to the secret pulse of the pictorial surface. The faces are often violated by time flowing relentlessly on the skin, deforming and shaping it over the years, to lay bare the soul. She has created a compendium of contemporary work as she integrates video-art with the visual language of her paintings for creations made with the same techniques. Lately she has begun an ambitious project related to the pictorial realization of the Divine Comedy by Dante Alighieri. She has received numerous awards abroad including England , Turkey and China. On 2011 she is invited at the 54 Biennal of Venice, Illuminazioni
