About The Artwork

"Lola in Ravello" is a portrait of this beautiful lady I saw in Ravello. I do not know her and decided to call her Lola as I was listening to "Lola" by the Kinks when thinking about a suitable title. This artwork belongs to a series dedicated to people I saw in Ravello, my boyfriend's hometown and one of the most beautiful place on the Amalfi Coast. Here I focus manly on the person instead of the location, but you can see some of the typical houses on the left hand side corner, and I like that their roofs and walls have almost the same colours as the girl. Being a feminist I like to celebrate all kind of beauty and to focus on detail of everyday life. Here "Lola" is snacking on something before seating at a cafè's table to join her friends in Ravello's main square (piazza). Sennelier oil pastels proved once more to be my medium of election and I am very pleased with the results here. Love these pastels' brightness and thickness; They make these drawings of mine almost like three dimensional artworks. I hope this artwork will bring you too to Ravello, tasting the amazing Italian food and enjoying the sun. This, like all the artworks from this series, has been treated with two to three layers of fixing spray; nonetheless I advise to promptly frame it with a glass too, to protect it from the dust.

"Mary Cinque is an Italian painter, graphic designer and blogger working and living in the Amalfi Coast. Her works – joyful, bright, colourful painting and drawings – are inspired by this place, as well as her heritage, background and travels. Mary spent her childhood between Italy and Ethiopia. Before moving back to the Amalfi Coast in 2019, she has lived in Naples and Milan, where she attended academies of fine art; and Philadelphia, New York and London where she improved her artistic skills and style. Alongside making art, she works as an illustrator and graphic designer, collaborating with selected brands, working on artistic commissions such as illustrations, labels and showroom design. Cinque’s art develops themes connected with what makes us essentially humans: our habitat – the buildings, the streets, the cities – our bodies, what we eat and how we socialise. Art, in Mary’s paintings, becomes a powerful instrument of philosophical investigation which reveals who we really are by questioning our habits, observing those characteristic traits we share as a species, often without realising it. The artist looks at human beings from a different perspective, making interesting and significant what can seem normal or banal to us in our everyday life: the buildings that populate our cities, the streets we walk, people sitting across our table at a café, strangers on the bus. In this nutshell interview by Giulia Corti, Mary Cinque explores some of the most relevant aspects of her art and reflects on how it offers an intriguing and informative perspective about the way we live as human animals. Mary, your art is colourful and vivid, it mixes human and urban subjects by making use of various techniques (oil painting; pastel drawing, markers, “digital” drawing, print-making etc.) and materials (canvasses, magazine pages, an I-pad screen). How do you choose the means with which to develop an artwork and how do the different materials and techniques influence what you want to convey, if they do? Different subjects call for different techniques. Buildings and urbanscape are always acrylic on canvas, while I prefer to depict people using a quicker, immediate approach, like the one that I can get with markers and oil pastels or digital painting. By looking at the main themes of your art, it is possible to notice what seems to be a tension. On one hand, you portrayed the stillness and artificiality of urban landscapes and buildings (e.g.
