About fiorentina giannotta

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.
