About Rosanna Gaddoni

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 different sensory responses.

The abstract technique (acrylic or mixed media) conveys the power of colors, which triggers the emotional memory level with their symbolic power.
The drawings (monochrome using charcoal and graphite) involve the memory through intellectual associations, with the use of different subjects representing the human figure and living beings, in the environment in which they live and interact.

Both techniques are aimed at exploring Life and want to promote devotion, research, and perception of Life.
