About The Artwork

by Emma_jane Austen novels. It is part of the Solo exhibition held in Miami in 2013 with Alberto Linero Gallery. The work is in the catalog: "Strange people in Miami" editrice Salentina. In the current year (2016) was in the competition organized by the Angelica Library in Rome. By Carolyn J. Brown Reading Austen also was the inspiration for Fiorentina Giannotta, an artist from Cosenza, Italy. Giannotta’s favorite Austen novel is Emma. She wrote me that “I find Austen a real genius, being able to impose [her] thoughts at the time. . . . [This work is a] tribute to Jane Austen and Emma, an energetic and talkative heroine who, after a series of vicissitudes, manages to recognize, perhaps, her soul mate” (Giannotta). In a second email she added: “My favorite [novel] is Emma. I think the personalities of the other characters in the book are expressed more than in the other novels. But next week I could change my mind.” Giannotta’s painting Emma e Knightley (2013) is an explosion of color and a vivid expression of the love she bears for her favorite Austen novel as well as the love the couple bears for one another. Giannotta portrays Emma and Knightley standing in front of a botanical background of bright green and red flowers. Knightley is positioned towards Emma, looking down upon her, while Emma stands beside him, sedate, no obvious emotion displayed on her face. The painting looks and feels like the moment before he expresses his love for her, as the bright colors, primarily red, green, pink, and purple, surround the couple and loudly declare the affection they have not yet expressed openly.

Fiorentina Giannotta (New York, 1964).So the dreams, apparitions, and thoughts that crowd our minds when waking early in the morning, in a widespread ironic visionary that only passion can make real. But also figures to read as illustrations and testimonies of an era beyond any possible anecdotal descriptiveness, recalling that in the end, of what is seen here, is some sort of approval of the image. Fiorentina Giannotta, through printing, always draws from her archives, including specific choices and defined references, arriving at a solution that as the artist says “are inspired by great painters, from novels and fiction”, in a widespread vision that becomes a work of art that overcomes the concept of form. Thanks also to a particular mastery in the representation of physiognomic, in compliance with the wildest imagination and subtle alliance between material and color that only light can make concrete. And the characters, as though surrounded by a crowd of signs and drawings that appear as a floral presence multiplied by infinity, between pattern and decor, are beautifully displayed in bright colors of industrial paints and Nissan green.
