Black and white face_ 25 x 33cm_Ilaria Berenice

Sometimes the unknown is scary, but it’s not the unknown that is evil, it’s fear that is. One step beyond there’s no evil nor good, there is only a human being playing in this reality made of duality, a swing of opposites, that can be fun if you don’t get trapped in it. Mysterious, 30 x 40 cm, ink and acrylic on canvas, available.

Utero 20x27cm_Ilaria Berenice

When I work on the abstract I don’t seek a precise form, I simply follow the flow of things. In this one, someone told me saw a womb and so I gave the title. What I like about this work is the color and light.

Womb, 20 x 27 x 2 cm, mixed media on paper lined on canvas, available. Read more

Animals 21x30cm_Paolo Amoretti and Ilaria Berenice

This was a small abstract painting made by Amoretti, who asked me an intervention to complete it, and I just pulled out the shapes I saw. Sometimes we like pure informal abstract art, sometimes this is not enough and we need to get out something of it, it’s the artwork that speaks, we just follow the input it gives us.

Riflection 80x120cm_Ilaria Berenice

I’ve always been intrigued by the union of the opposites within, or androgyny, reflected in a face, or as in this case in a woman who  is surprised to see her masculine reflected in the window of a train.

Elf_35x90cm_Paolo Amoretti and Ilaria Berenice

This is a work I made with my partner Paolo Amoretti. He began working on a long canvas on which he made a face that recalled me so much the creatures of nature, and so I continued with nature as flowers. I like how our styles and personalities so different, reflected in the use of different colors and techniques are so well integrated to create something new.

Face in negative with ink_25x33cm_Ilaria Berenice

I made this  face with ink by focusing on light and shadow to the opposite of what I usually do, so that the lights become shadows and vice versa. Each work for me is a challenge and I like to experience new things.
Made on paper and then lined on canvas, 25 x 35 x 2 cm, available. Read more

El toro rosa 50x60cm 2016 Ilaria Berenice and Paolo Amoretti

This I did with my partner Paul Amoretti. In fact it was one of my old paintings, a portrait of an Indian woman which I didn’t like, and, as we often do with unsatisfactory results, we decided to recycle the canvas. So I started by applying a collage which I then removed with a decollage, Paul added there pink oil painting, unusual color for him and then I saw a bull there. The result we felt it was more than satisfying.
