Osvalda Pucci’s Deserts look like explorations of the mind’s inner world. As a deep connoisseur of ancient painting techniques, Pucci mixes concepts and ideas in her deserts, which blend materials and meanings. Overlapping imagination and science, the beauty of landscape assumes sedimentary, volcanic, and erosive origins, all terms that adapt to the feelings, the sense of time and a future perspective in which new possibilities of connection and coexistence may be found.
Pucci’s work was worth the Gran Prix Artiste, a prestigious prize that she was awarded in Cannes during the Film Festival. Finally, we would like to recall that Osvalda Pucci is included in a very intimate circle of artists selected for the ConGiunti project (promoted by Italian publisher Giunti) in which new pathways of interpretation are addressed through affinities between a contemporary and a past-time artwork; one of Osvalda Pucci’s work was compared with a painting by Ennio Morlotti.
The comparison, published here, reveals a strong spiritual relationship between the author and the great master of Twentieth century. Osvalda Pucci’s artworks will be shown at the Castello Sforzesco in Novara from 8 to 27 September; exhibitions in Como and Rome will follow.
