About paolafalconi

I studied sculpture at the Academy of Fine Arts in Florence and Carrara. I live in a country house in Sardinia with my husband, four kids and my Westie. My work is constantly inspired by nature, in all its forms.

Culla d’Inciviltà nell’isola di Santa Maria a La Maddalena

Scroll down for the English version….

Il 24 luglio io e la mia amica Tiziana Santoni, insieme alle nostre figlie, ci siamo alzate di buon’ora e col cuore pieno di emozione siamo partite per l’isola di Santa Maria nell’arcipelago della Maddalena.

Arrivate sull’isola magnifica e selvaggia – dopo un piccolo viaggio in barca, dove io tenevo ben stretta in braccio la scultura del bambino di “Culla d’inciviltà” – ci siamo recate nel luogo dove dovevamo attuare il nostro progetto. (more…)

Telo Quadro

By paolafalconi   /     Jul 17, 2020  /     Inspiring moments, My art

Ho disegnato degli acquerelli allegri e colorati che parlassero di gioia per riflettere sulla bellezza della natura quando ci ammalia coi suoi profumi e coi suoi colori. E questi acquerelli sono diventati degli asciugamani che sono delle piccole opere inserite nel progetto di Castia Art “Culla di inciviltà” volto a far riflettere sull’importante ruolo che ciascuno di noi può avere per la salvaguardia dell’ambiente.

Mi piace l’idea che un pensiero vada al nostro bellissimo pianeta quando stendiamo l’asciugamano sulla sabbia al mare, o mentre facciamo sport, o una sauna, o un bagno rigenerante e profumato.
L’azienda tedesca che li produce garantisce l’utilizzo responsabile delle risorse naturali. Pesa poco, si asciuga rapidamente, ed è in morbidissimo tessuto. Per tenere i colori freschi e brillanti bisogna solo avere l’accortezza di lavarlo ad una temperatura che non superi i 40°.
I teli quadro sono realizzati con un metodo di sublimazione a secco che consente all’inchiostro di penetrare fino al centro della fibra, creando un’opera d’arte duratura e resistente all’acqua.

The magic of making a portrait

By paolafalconi   /     Jun 21, 2020  /     Inspiring moments, My art

Testo in italiano in fondo alla pagina

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.

Maternity

Testo in italiano in fondo alla pagina

In 1994 I participated in an exhibition at the “Cittadella dei Musei” in Cagliari. I had just finished the Art Academy and I was full of enthusiasm, young and still without children. For a month I worked hard on this sculpture, which I first made of clay and then of plaster.

It was a month of continuous work, every day until late at night, of which I have a beautiful memory. I loved abstract sculpture and I also practiced it, but a part of me wanted to represent motherhood in a figurative way. And so, as always listening to my heart, I ventured into this work.
