An Intense Summer

When it comes to art, July and August have been very intense months for me.

I worked for the whole winter together with my curator Katy Carta on the realization of my monograph ‘’IN // Inspired by Nature’’ and, when it was finally ready, I considered important presenting it to my friends, acquaintances and art collectors in my city: Cagliari.

IN // Inspired by Nature

Testo in italiano alla fine della pagina

We finally made it! The curator Katy Carta and I have been collaborating for a year for the realisation of my monograph “IN // Inspired by Nature”. I liked the idea of fixing on paper my artistic experience.

After the Academy of Arts, I followed the classic path of all the young artists: frequenting galleries and cultural associations, participating in collective exhibitions and art competitions. But, while I was starting my career I was living: I got married and with my husband I raised a family of four kids.

As many working mums I chose to sacrifice my career in order to give quality time to my family but I never abandoned my artistic activity. I just slowed it down, I didn’t exhibit anymore but I never regretted it at all.

Besides that, since a few years, with my kids being more independent I gradually increased the amount of time spent working and, thanks to this blog, I started talking about me and my art. For me writing is close to a psychological introspection. It has helped and stimulated me to work always more, up to the point of dedicating myself completely to art again – first by painting, then by exhibiting and finally by sculpting.

Silenzio

By paolafalconi   /     May 17, 2017  /     My art

Testo in italiano alla fine della pagina

“Silenzio” is my latest sculpture. It is sculpted in tuff and it is born from my actual research.

With its soft shapes, it wants to evoque feelings of calmness, moments in which everything is about listening.

I like to stare at it and, in the absence of every action, let everything flow. It’s a reaction to the excessive stimuli of this historical moment, and it is also a recall to stop ourselves without feeling guilty if we do so.

 Silenzio

“Silenzio” è l’ultima scultura che ho fatto. E’ scolpita nel tufo e nasce dalla ricerca di questo periodo.

Vuole  evocare con le sue morbide forme sentimenti di calma, momenti in cui tutto è ascolto. 

Mi piace guardarla e in assenza di qualunque azione, lasciare scorrere ogni cosa. E’ una reazione all’eccesso di stimoli di questo momento storico, e anche  un richiamo alla necessità di fermarsi senza sentirsi in colpa se lo si fa.

Peaceful fishes

By paolafalconi   /     Feb 19, 2017  /     Inspiring moments, My art

Testo in italiano alla fine della pagina

In this painting I wanted to express the feeling of tranquility and well-being that arouse while observing the fishes swimming in the water.

I’m amazed by their movements and I love the silence surrounding them.

In questo quadro ho voluto esprimere la sensazione di tranquillità e pace che mi provocano i pesci quando li guardo nuotare nell’acqua.

Mi incantano coi loro movimenti armoniosi e mi piace il silenzio che li avvolge.

Finding Joy in Every Day Things

By paolafalconi   /     Jan 15, 2017  /     Inspiring moments, My art

Testo in italiano alla fine della pagina

Among the little great joys of life, I want to share with you one specific moment of silence in my studio in the middle of the winter, with the company of my little dog and a fireplace.

Rain, white sky, green leaves of the myrtle tree, olive tree, arbutus tree and the sleeping grass are outside my studio

Inside my studio there are colors on the table and ideas that come to life on a piece of paper, with a clear sensation that I’m leaving a special but affordable moment: finding joy in the ordinary.
