The artwork changes and evolves overtime, as the person who makes it.

In the small apartment where I lived with my husband Mario in 1996, I thought and realized the work you see in these photographs while I was pregnant with my first child.

I was commissioned by Mariano Pintus, who later became a dear friend,  for his disco pub “Lagoon” in Villasimius. The place was very famous for its wonderful summer parties in the 90s and more. The work consists of 42 tiles inspired by flowers and plants – all different from each other – and a set of elements applied to the wall, inspired by the marine environment.

This year, during the summer, twenty-three years later, I refreshed the artwork, to which I am very fond. Refreshing a job I did long time ago, when I was a different person, was very inspiring. (more…)

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.

The Winter Sea

By paolafalconi   /     Jan 09, 2015  /     Inspiring moments

Hello friends,

after many festive days with family and friends, I decided to spend a few days in one of the places that I love most in the world: Villasimius. This is the magic place where I go when I need to rest and find myself.

When I was a child I used to come here with my family as a guest at my aunts’ place. The memories of such perfect moments, full of joy, amusement and serenity have always represented a perfect sense of peace and protection.

I know that I’m a bit reserved but in those days I walked by the sea with my dog, nobody was around me. The summer houses, that in the high season are full of people, were empty and silent, the beach was deserted, the sea was a little stormy and the sky, full of clouds with wonderful winter colors. Everything was in harmony and silent. I felt a surge of happiness: it was awesome!

Here some pictures I’ve taken of such wonderful moments, a treasure that I will keep for my art.
