Valeria Patrizi

Painting works

In her large canvases, displayed without frames as if they were large tapestries, Valeria Patrizi seeks the balance of form through lines and spots, using coffee, tea and bitumen. Constantly searching for a new and symbolic idea of the human figure, she dwells on the image of the woman; the only one in whom she can lose herself and find herself again.
