This painting in oils on canvas depicts a young woman thinking. The phrase "ch'a fari?" in Sicilian dialect means "what should I do?". The atmosphere of the painting invites reflection, and the style is suspended between realism and surrealism through the introduction of a bird flying in a comics-like style.

BIO Originally from Italy (Palermo 1991) and currently based in Australia, I am an expressionist painter working at the intersection between the social sciences and the fine arts. ARTIST STATEMENT I see the canvas as an ‘heterotopia’, using a term by Foucault, another world within this world, mirroring and yet upsetting what is outside; a space of experimentation in which the constructed mechanisms of social life are revealed as in a photographic negative. INSPIRATIONS I am inspired by Chagall, Schiele, Paula Rego, Berthe Morisot, Paula Modersohn-Becker, and Sicilian artists Renato Guttuso and Gianbecchina. Many of my works are based or influenced by my fieldwork research in Nepal and Australia, and by the social world were I grew up in Palermo. TECHNIQUES AND OUTPUTS I am prevalently a figurative painter. My practice involves studio work and exhibitions, as well as teaching, academic publications and creative writing. Since 2022 I have started to sell my work on Saatchi art.
