About The Artwork

In her reflection, the artist starts from the very concept of the universe, understood as the all-encompassing essence of all the elements of existence or, borrowing her words, "a huge container of energy that flows, never static but always in constant movement". Considering the composition of space, made up of ordinary matter and dark matter, harmony and chaos, matter and antimatter, light and dark, Valeria Ferrari recreates in her paintings this duality inherent in the universe. But duality, even if it puts in antithesis opposite things, is fundamental "to reach a state of equilibrium in a universe that is constantly changing. Therefore, the winner can be considered as whoever comes to understand and appreciate dualism and accepts it in order to transform it", says Valeria. The artist, who likes to call herself " chemist of materials ", claims to practice a painting "not dual" but based on the complementarity of materials and concepts that by their nature are found at the antipodes. In these works, apparently abstract but which, in reality, describe the constellations of the universe, oil bursts onto the canvas together with water colours, which are also widely used in other works by Valeria Ferrari. This is a material that is widely diffused in everyday life and, for this reason, seems to be interpreted as a sort of contemporary archetype.

Valeria Ferrari was born on the 8th of December 1988 in Bari, Italy, where she still lives and works. She began her studies of art and music very young and attended the Conservatory N. Piccinni to study cello. At the same time, she attended courses in ceramics and drawing. Following high-school she enrolled in the faculty of psychology and then attended some post-graduate courses in "hypnosis", "symbolic modelling" and "interpretation of the drawings of children". Her interest continued to turn to art in all its forms.Together with the artist Anna Guerriero, she created the first collection of “Gioiellid'Arte”, small watercolour paintings made of silver and glass mosaic from the ancient furnaces of Murano. With these works she created her first exhibition in 2010 –“Arcus CaelestisVenetiae”- in the gallery “DivisioneArte” in Bari. During the exhibition she performed a reading that provided a synthesis between colours, sounds and video images. The performance aimed to induce the viewer to follow a unique and personal artistic path through installations, which became an integral part of the work itself. Her work continued with a new exhibition in 2013 in Venice in the “Basilica del Frari”, in the important "Sala del Capitolo" where, together with "Gioiellid'Arte", she exhibited the sequel to her previous works: a series of large panels made of glass mosaic. In 2015 she opened a solo exhibition entitled "Violence" at the club "MAD" in Bari that sees her in the main role with the electric cello in a live musical performance. In 2016 she participated in the event opening of the event "SAVE THE BEAUTY", completing a live ‘Action Painting’ . The event at the Palazzo Roberti in Mola di Bari was dedicated to the fight against violence towards women. Her event also followed a multisensory path where the public witnessed the realization of the work at the time of creation, acting in synergy with the musicians, poets and writers present. In the summer of 2016 she collaborated with the project "TRITONO" in a series of events that included the presentation of original and unpublished musical projects.The work shows, in the pictorial work of Valeria Ferrari, the highest expression of the concept of experimentation, creating aintermingling of meanings between music, art and environment. In November 2016 she exhibited her works in a solo exhibition for the inauguration of the Dexter Club, a place of cultural interest in Bari.
