Lost myself represents a moment of black out, associated with the loss of identity, a journey symbolic into a labyrinth where organic shapes and dark spots evoke unconscious fears, taboos, sides in shadow of the self. Infiltrations of light allow for the recognition and disavowal of forms and symbols in a continuous process of identification and disidentification. The work was also made with organic elements such as earth and natural pigments.

Brigitta Rossetti's Recherche, as French writer Marcel Proust put it, is linked to the expressive power of its original and complex plots and the meticulous descriptions of the inner processes related to memory, human feeling and the proscenium on which everything takes place; his Recherche, in fact, is a metaphorical journey that creeps through time and memory and which unfolds nimbly within a syntactic structure composed essentially of lenient grace and vehement layering, whose plot focuses broadly on a narrating self, which strongly demands on the one hand a one hand a great analytical capacity and on the other the exaltation of the intuitive forms of knowledge of the world and interiority of the human being.

Through the use of enamels, acrylics, blotting papers, textiles, mixed techniques and the integration of different materials, among others, in both pictorial and installation ones, Rossetti is constantly searching for a balance between figuration and abstraction, a creative crossroads in which the artist herself gives herself the opportunity to deepen the definition of space and the relationship between it and the work of art. Yes, it is an artistic creativity of an allegorically odeporic matrix, in which cohabit a certain rational, cosmopolitan, naturalistic and anthropocentric objectivity, and a greater emotionality and subjectivity of the motions of the soul..." excerpt from the text La Recherche edited by Domenico de Chirico.

Lost my self participated in the artist's solo exhibition "Peter Pan's Boots" At the Bianchi Zardin Contemporary Gallery in 2019.
The work was a finalist for the Artright Prize curated by Luca Beatrice, Marta Giani and Maria Chiara Valacchi.
