We all have heroes. And heroins.
They can belong to TV shows, to politics, to sports.
Mine are definitely in books. I have tons of books. And when I say tons…… I’m serious about it. I’m an addicted, I buy books, and I rescue books from those who don’t want them anymore. Actually, I increased my personal library until it has reached over 1,000 titles.
To be honest, I haven’t read them all. But I still look for new ones. Moreover, I seldom read the same book twice.
Books are faithful friends and they patiently wait for their moment to arrive. The instant when, after checking and checking the available titles on the bookshelf at the corner, you get to hold one of them in your hands, look carefully at the image on the first page, read the short summary of the story on the back and you finally say ‘Yes, it’s your turn’.
I’m currently working on a new series of paintings on large canvas. It’s quite a challenge, since all my previous pieces are, in average, medium-sized. This series is related to heroins in literature, and it will cover charming characters who are the protagonists of classical novels.
I can’t reveal details (God knows it’s quite an effort to keep the silence on this topic because I would like to involve you in all the steps), except that I will show bold colours in these portraits and figures, changing palette in each of them, and in this way purposing different atmospheres, suggestions, dreamlike places for all the viewers.
The first paintings of this in progress series will premiere in the Bloomz art show on 29th and 30 January. Just a week!
