ROSETTA SANTUCCI ARTIST PAINTER
EXHIBITING MAY/JUNE , 2012.
Exhibiting at SOHO GALLERIES, SOHO ANNEX and ART MELBOURNE
Having spent over a
decade experimenting with applications like jewellery and textile design, it
was a natural progression for me to start painting. My background in costume for film and
television and a passion for textiles - primarily tribal and ethnic designs -
has influenced my painting style.
I'm self taught, and
it has only been through practice and time that I have nurtured my style. I grew up in the Barossa Valley surrounded by
vineyards and wide open spaces, and in doing so, developed a deep concern with
natural forms connected to life - plants, bones, feathers, hills, trees and
stones. More and more I realise that my
paintings are a path of self discovery and an expression of life
experiences. As an artist I understand
that nature and life have a lot to offer.
This body of work is a
continuation of my journey through the landscape. Expanses of land gridded by man and
nature. Snapshot memories and - recent
and childhood - map out my own personal vision.
