Works by Anna Valla

Anna Valla was born in Salluzzo, where she lives and works. 

He studied at the Albertina Academy in Turin and completed his training in the cultural environment of the Turin avant-garde of the '70s. His first solo exhibition was in 1979. Subsequently he participated in other personal exhibitions in Italy (Bologna, Naples, Parma, Alassio, Ascoli Piceno, Bra, Perugia, Genoa, Omegna, Rome, Florence, Bari, Turin) and abroad (as in Basel, Paris, Dusseldorf, Melbourne and Geelong). His works are present in various Galleries of Modern Art in Gallarate, Termoli, Marradi, Torre Pellice, in Milan at the Banca Commerciale Italiana, in Saluzzo at the Banca Regionale Europea, and in private collections. Between 1990 and 1996 he made ceramic sculptures in the Albisola laboratories and also in glass at an art glassworks in Savona. The main elements that characterize his works are color and gestural sign, united by a linear abstractionism, but without his painting being exhausted in one or the other, and without one prevailing over the other, in a relationship of mediated balance and coherent complementarity. The result to which it comes is therefore extraordinarily unitary: the conceptual rigor of geometric abstraction is used not to elide but, on the contrary, to make the emotional and instinctal charge expressed through color alive and vibrant. The reality is then filtered by a sort of "eye-navel", a careful perceptive tension both physical-emotional and intellectual, with a need for contact-detachment between the perceived reality and its meditated, mediated and finally rendered reflection 'Opera. In his creations browns, lands, ocher and soft colors prevail. Anna Valla's works show a taste for rhythm, harmony and balance, synthesized in simple forms. A constant motif in his works are sketched and sketched lines that give dynamism to the composition.
