About sonia viccaro

I was born in Rome, .After having graduated from an art college in 1978, i began to work as a graphic artist in advertising.In 1981 i went to London, where i continued my studies in design and photography, and i began working as an art restorer. In 1986 I came back in Rome, where I have a dedication to painting, sculpture and photography. In my research, after a rigorous investigation of the real, has been followed a period where the recurring presenze of triangular or spherical forms,, also deriving from my graphic studies, trying to modify certain figure into a more different colours trough the same one, where the past fuses and confuse with the present. Further on, my research has gone often trough a dissolvetion of figures and lines, playing together the game of dinamic move. In other words,J like to see the shapes and figures around me, all the way possible. Nevertheless, jam interested in figuration as well,which j think cannot necesserly being separate from abstract form and viceversa. J thnk they can walk together, even if apparently different: just like past and present can do. Besides the old Masters,the artistic influences that somehow J feel closer to me, are those coming from "Cezanne" period first, to the abstract one. In particular the lyric poetic of Kandinskji and the Rotko wonderfull broadfields of color; from Rauscenberg to Warhol in America, ecc. More recently, the abstract research in the Roman enviroment, from the "50" to "70"es, with artist like Burri, Perilli, Pace, Festa, Schifano, ecc.Among all my teachers, J can mention Nunzio Bibbò, very good sculptor, and Paolo Eleuteri, very famous cartoonist.
