The magic of making a portrait

When I decided to make this portrait to the daughter of family friends who is now a young girl, I searched among the many photographs – which fortunately I had – the one with the expression that I think represented her best.

I wanted to fully grasp what was its essence for me, but despite the various attempts I was never satisfied. Looking at the photo and all its light and shadow, I tried to draw the girl, but a very little pencil mark was enough to completely change her expression and not make me reach the desired result. I continued to draw and look at those little features, the expression of the eyes, the lips that hinted at a smile, the crease of the eyebrows, looking for the right proportion and the right balance between all these elements; and while I was doing it, it was as if I was talking to her confidentially, and she was telling me many things about herself.

The exhibition remained open from Saturday afternoon until the end of Sunday and had an excellent success, both for the quantity of visitors and for their quality. As always happens at exhibitions, the insiders came: other artists, curators, journalists and representatives of the institutions. But many collectors and many art lovers also came, in all about 500 visitors. (more…)
