About The Artwork

The work is a tribute to the hands through which I materialize my intimate story. The mouth symbolizes this story, silent and passionate. The touch of reddish color reinforces the passionate element and at the same time underlines the difficulty of being free to the bottom.

“I use real lights and shadows, but what I expect from them is, being beyond human existence, to be conductors from depth to surface. The latter, often finding its necessary place in the human face, must live imperfect as the approximation of perfect vulnerability.” - Cetti Tumminia - What the artist declares is symbolically and skilfully manifested in her extracts, in her diaries, showing her honesty. Accepting our shadows may bring pain, but at the same time evolution, change and self-acceptance. We can see ourselves in the contrasts of lights and shadows, as well as in their balance, we can see past our fears, our fragility may emerge, but also all the potential within ourselves. The light within us shines bright only after having known our depths, residing in the dark place of absolute silence and paradoxical awareness of the unperturbed internal reality. There is no conflict, there is a balance that in Tumminia’s works is resolved with total communication between what is inside ourselves and what is manifested on the outside, what one must be socially and what one really is: as it appears in the artist’s works, the key is the link between lights and shadows. “Introspection” derives exactly from an accurate self-analysis, of the emotions and deep motivations of our actions inside and out. “There is no coming to consciousness without pain. People will do anything, no matter how absurd, in order to avoid facing their own soul. One does not become enlightened by imagining figures of light, but by making the darkness conscious.” - Carl Jung – In the artist we observe a deep connection between the conscious reaction to the daily routine, which functions as inspiration, and a subconscious reaction to what is visible to her creating an ethereal bond between the woman she has to be and the woman she is inside, between soul and body, art and life. Tumminia tries to link the visible world to the invisible: the first through technique, full of black and white contrasts, where black becomes silence and exalts rediscovery and rebirth, the second through making the contrasts an elsewhere. The lines in her pieces hold such sensitivity that seems to be coming from distant memories: the lines express the personality of her subjects giving them a different personality and absolute uniqueness.
