LUISA GARDINI
PARIS PARFUM ST HONORÉ 

 

"SENZA TITOLO" MIXED MEDIA, WOOD

LUISA WAS BORN IN RAVENNA (ITALY) IN 1935. SHE STARTED STUDYING PAINTING IN HER HOME TOWN AND THEN ENROLLED AT THE ACADEMY OF FINE ARTS IN ROME. EVEN THOUGH SHE HAS BEEN PROLIFICALLY PRODUCING WORKS THROUGH DIFFERENT MEDIA SINCE THE END OF THE 50S - INCLUDING DRAWING, PAINTING, COLLAGE, SCULPTURE AND FOUND OBJECT - SHE ONLY STARTED EXHIBITING AT THE END OF THE 70S.

LUISA GARDINI’S FIRST ENCOUNTER WITH CONTEMPORARY ART HAS BEEN TOTI SCIALOJA WHO INTRODUCED HER TO THE INTERNATIONAL ARTISTIC CONTEXT OF THE ’50 - ’60 AND TO THE WORKS OF MASTERS SUCH AS CY TWOMBLY AND MARK ROTHKO. 
LUISA GARDINI’S PRACTICE, INSPIRED BY THESE LESSONS, IS ALWAYS CHARACTERIZED BY A QUICK AND INSTINCTIVE SIGN, BY DISTORTION AND SERIALITY: SIGN AND MATTER ALWAYS PLAY THE LEADING ROLE. IN HER WORKS THERE IS NO DESIRE TO BE REPRESENTATIVE OR SPECULATIVE, THEY ARE RATHER A CONTINUOUS RESEARCH ON THE POTENTIAL OF ALL THE POSSIBLE FORMS OF AN OBJECT, HER ART IS REPRESENTATIVE OF AN INTIMATE INSTINCT THAT CANNOT BE OTHERWISE DECIPHERED.
ANOTHER CRUCIAL ELEMENT OF HER ART IS THE USE OF THE MATTER AND THE BLENDING OF DIFFERENT TECHNIQUES: WE CANNOT ALWAYS SEPARATE SCULPTURE FROM PAINTING DUE TO THE THE STRATIFICATION OF MATERIALS, OBJECTS, IMAGES, ILLEGIBLE TEXTS WHICH CAN TRANSFORM BOTH THE MATTER AND THE SHAPE, RESULTING IN AN INDECIPHERABLE OBJECT.
