Abstract Paintings

Here I gather abstract artworks from different series, different techniques and periods often overlap.  The Light and color series, where the attention is mainly on color and light, with purely pictorial instinctive technique with the use of brushes, often starting from geometric shapes, not by reason but by instinct, basic. The Collage and Painting series where I use  objects, fabrics and sand and painting of course, and the Decollage and Painting series that to me is a kind of alchemical process, in which occurs the creation and then destruction and again the reconstruction and so on, until I can find the perfect balance.

The techniques Ilaria Berenice prefers are acrylic gouache and the use of collage with pieces of fabrics, cardboard, copper wires or rhinestones, which become an integral part of the work and acquire a new and very personal value. Her painting career began in Brazil, a country that has been a source of inspiration for the artist. In most of the works you can perceive a strong positive energy and radiance, as well as a taste for the exotic. Ilaria says she learned manual creativity first learning crocheting by the elderly inhabitants of the village where she lived and, then, creating shapes and colors in compositions on pieces of cardboard or wood. A style, she says, not dictated by cultural references, but by the mere need to create and the limited availability of material. Whether animated or inanimate bodies, the search for Ilaria is that, through the symbol, the meaning of existence.
