Artist Statement I use different types of media such as drawing, painting and various materials to investigate and explore new systems of the language of art. “Untitled” is my last series of two hundred oil pastels on paper. A brief colourful summary of my artistic research but above all a tribute to Biba. “Tight cut skinny sleeves, earthy colours , called “Auntie Colours - Blackish mulberries, blueberries, rusts and plums. Hulanicki described them as looking like a funeral”. I was inspired by shapes of Italian fashion clothing and work uniforms and the brightness of the colours of British clothing, the simplicity of the shapes playing with primary colors, secondary and complementary. The human body, male or female, that communicates emotions through different clothing. I would like to link art to fashion. Since I started my artistic research more than fifty years ago I have never painted directly from nature or from photographs but I have always tried to interpret the real visions according to the colours, lines and forms. “Di Filippo's influences include the slender portraits Modigliani and especially, the vibrant colours of Sonia Delaunay. In The Observer she explains, "I was inspired by abstract, minimal, contemporary artists. But then I came back to my first loves: art and fashion." Biba’s designs are reminiscent of the classic Italian fashion Di Filippo grew up with: "They have a simplicity of shape, and I loved the colours such as olive, rust, and bruised purple." For Di Filippo, Biba's 60s style remains timeless. "It’s like Coco Chanel’s little black dress. It will never get old."
