Panel mixed media with gestural painting that focuses on the harmony of the great classics. Pictorial jewels paired with photographic pictures give the work a pop vein, providing an unusually harmonious meeting of classic and contemporary. The kingpins of this aesthetic exploration are power and balance.

1949 Trieste, Italy

Adriana Rigonat's works are made with mixed media on paper, executed with acrylic paints, pastels and charcoals; these pictorial practices are mixed, in her latest production, with photographic collage techniques. Adriana Rigonat tries to use the photographic image as an instrument of her palette as an indefinable colour that comes to us like an emotional frequency that speaks of the memory of the body.
The protagonists of the works are undoubtedly the shadows without identity that run across the canvas and relate to the realistic photographic impressions. The latter becomes a representation of the memories of those painted shadows themselves; they are the expression of personal and subjective memory that the artist highlights and defines, modifying them graphically by implementing a subjective rewriting of memory. The artist lets everyone enter in her works and, although they are sewn on the experience of another, they become paradoxically familiar to the observer.
