Mixed Media Artist
Let me introduce myself, I'm Alessia Zari, 39 years old, born in Grosseto in the beautiful Maremma, but from I always live on Lake Como, in Colico. I attended the art school in Valtellina and I am currently enrolled in the third year of painting at the Brera Academy of Fine Arts. Art has always accompanied me in life, since I was little, it helped me to grow up and become the woman I am today. I remember my dream was to be able to being able to express my emotions and my thoughts through an artistic language in which I could have recognized. I have had the great fortune of living in a historical period that allows artists to be free to express our creativity. For years I have put this need aside, I have I had three children and I dedicated myself to my family. For four years I have been able to carve out the my spaces and return to express myself. My passion has always been drawing, with graphite, charcoal, sanguinia. The realistic portrait was a stimulus for me to look beyond. But from a year I met, thanks to the in-depth study of the entire history of 20th century art, new ones contemporary languages that have allowed me to know a new way of expression, where the gesture and the sign are the masters. An informal imprint, which seeks space in current time, following an impulse, a gesture almost automatic, fast, full of energy, of vitality. All accompanied by the sign expressive born from the need to bring out another part of me within the work, for become a recognizable part, the one that perhaps I have never been able to see. Each movement aims to incorporate other movements by seeking that painting of gesture and sign that characterized the French "tachisme". I am expressing myself through language models learned. Gesture, speed of execution and white space trying to chase the mental act through emotions of the moment. I tried to take an analytical attitude by shifting the procedures from an expressive plane to a reflective plane by engaging in an artistic discourse in
moment of the act. Through the immediacy of execution, I sought a contemporaneity between thought and action. In the emptiness of the sheet I look for the richness of simplicity, the aroused expectation from incompleteness and asymmetry: it is the charm of absence. No deletion, none
repetition, but spontaneity and instantaneity.
