About The Artwork

About "Rubedo" Rubedo is a Latin word that refers to "Red", "Redness". In the title, the symbolic world of Alchemy is revealed. This painting completes a series of three paintings that go through the three-phases tradition of Alchemy (Nigredo-Albedo-Rubedo) bringing to the "Opus Magnum", the "Great Work". I have always been interested in ancient knowledge, especially when colours are used to convey it. The three colours black white and red are a recurrent triad that occurs when the transmutation concept has to be transmitted. Rubedo is the completion of the transformation process, the synthesis after the antithesis of black and white phases. Red is a powerful colour that represents purified and high energy. In Jungian psychology, it points to the merging of Self and Ego for the full integration and the individuation of the true nature. With the colour of blood, it gives birth to a new personality.  - #Ready to hang - Materials: The artwork is handmade with premium quality materials (Acrylic paint, Gesso, Stretched Canvas) to ensure the quality and durability of the artwork, creating a unique material texture. It is signed in the front with my monogram and in the back with my full signature and no. of the artwork. The painting comes along with a certificate of authenticity. Packaging: The artwork is packed with several layers of bubble-wrap plastic and sent in a box to ensure it will be delivered in perfect conditions. ~ I am an Italian visual artist based in the Netherlands. I paint and draw to explore the secret inner mystery of Existence and of the human condition.

In the work of Rosanna, life exuberance is researched, perceived, explored, and celebrated. She creates artworks in which the human experience of existence is central. Her work is an invitation to open yourself to Life's presence, as ineffable and precious. Rosanna works mainly with abstract painting and figurative drawing techniques, to point to a different sensory response. The abstract technique with acrylic or mixed media conveys the power of colors, which triggers the emotional memory level with their symbolic power. Drawings involve memory with intellectual associations, with the use of different subjects representing the human figure, living beings, and the environment in which they live and interact. Both techniques are aimed at exploring life and want to promote devotion, the perception, and the discovery of Life, through different themes faced and developed over time. Rosanna's artworks are part of private collections in Italy, the Netherlands, Belgium, Germany, Spain, France, the UK, the US, Canada, Turkey, Iran. In 2021 she has been invited to participate in the “35x35 art project” and her work is also part of the permanent collection of Copelouzos Family Art Museum in Greece. She is a member of Portrait Society of America
