I live and work between Altea, Spain and Rome where I was born.
I studied at the Academy of Fine Arts in Rome and at the University of Fine Arts UMH Altea, Spain, which ended in October 2009.
In my work I follow a multidisciplinary course in which the absence of color prevails, highlighting a minimalism of matter. Through the manipulation of painting as a means of expression, printing techniques such as collagraph and sculpture represent distorted representations at the limit of abstraction.
The artistic development project focuses on the portrait and deepens the psychic limit that the individual surpasses in the emotional state. In this reflection, in a narrative form, one contemplates an evolution of being that exceeds its barriers, converting them into their own way of escape. It comes to an imaginary world made of obscure fantasies and intimate pleasures that refer to desire as the impulse of the human being.
By referencing emotional perception, the individualistic interpretation changes, which extends in the form of etymological analysis. I come up with a reflection on the anthropological connection between the two emerging interpretations: the negative connotation of the boundary as a barrier that can not be blocked in a state of stoppage takes on a positive value by opening itself to new horizons.
“Arianna De Nicola, realizes an research to enter the depths of the human being. The physical and psychic limits, the visible and most hidden fears. An attempt of dip in the deepest of the psyche; A personal trip of confrontation with one itself and of overcoming. Beyond the minimalismo and of the aesthetic subtlety, Arianna pushes us to give this jump to the emptiness that supposes overcoming the barriers that us flood the soul.”
