The elegance and sophistication of the work of art.
It’s surprising the artistic and semantic journey Roberta Diazzi has made in a few years. Even more surprising are the goals that this artist from Modena has achieved with her own resources. Remarkable the coherence with which she pursued a personal style throughout her journey, albeit varying materials and themes with the subject she portrays. Some critics declare that art is made by the succession of movements and languages, from which the lonesome experiences of innovative artists are born. These participate to the supply of new techniques and styles, that are however not easy to interpret and recreate and remain as such unique in their innovation and quality. This is the case with Roberta Diazzi! Her work may seem simple at first glance, but it is the result of a research for precious and expensive materials not easily found by anyone, and as such desired even by the most demanding and wealthy among the costumers. In order to compensate the restless and contemporary spirit of a society that imposes always new desires, and always more amplified dreams.
Moreover, the elegance and difficulty with which they are positioned on the works is the result of a deep expertise, enriched and refined step by step. Swarovski crystals of diverse dimensions are the absolute protagonists of her prestigious work. From 2011 onwards these exquisite faceted and reflecting materials make up her works in their entirety. Measuring from four down to a half millimetre in diameter, covering even the most minuscule spaces of the elaborate surfaces, they break down and reflect lights and colours, gifting vibrancy and vivacity to the subjects. Every work is also accompanied by an authenticity certification for the Swarovski crystals.
Light is mandatory for the fruition of these works. Whether direct or tangent, it creates reflections and shades that influence sight, enriching the motion and dynamism of the shapes. The image is then completed by personal sensibility and perception. Her work lives throughout diverse passages: the photographic image the artist takes apart to create designs, which are merged with shades of light or dark, strong and soft colours, and plays of shadows and lights. These designs are transferred freehandedly with a soft pencil on the support. The surface where the crystals are placed upon is also the result of a long search for the right material, to exalt their exquisiteness to the highest degree: it is black acrylic glass.
