Paola Falconi, Mare, 2001, Acrylic on canvas, 80cm x 120cm 

In her works, made around 2001, Paola Falconi abandoned a specific reference to figurative art in order to paint images with a stronger spiritual meaning. She developed a style in which hazy areas of colour float within a large horizontal format, interrupted at times by lines or geometric shapes. The artist apropos wrote “…when I painted these works I choose a large format, so that the viewer could feel attracted and enveloped by colour, loosing himself in it”. In fact, Paola Falconi sought to create, in her canvas, a space where to experience a moment of solitary meditation.

In particular, is the colour that leads the viewer, by means of the lack of any figurative representation, to a spiritual dimension.

Nei suoi lavori, realizzati intorno al 2001, Paola Falconi abbandona le rappresentazioni figurative per dipingere opere maggiormente permeate di contenuti spirituali. Sviluppa, quindi, un personale stile in cui sfumate aree di colore fluttuano all’interno di grandi formati orizzontali, talvolta interrotte da linee o forme geometriche.

L’artista a proposito scrisse “…quando ho dipinto questi quadri, ho scelto un formato un po’ grande, perché chi guardava si potesse sentire attratto e investito dal colore, perché ci si potesse un po’ perdere”. Infatti, Paola Falconi ha cercato di creare, nelle sue tele, uno spazio dove sperimentare un momento di solitaria meditazione. In particolare, è il colore che guida lo spettatore, per mezzo dell’abbandono di qualsiasi rappresentazione figurativa, verso una dimensione spirituale.
