NUDA di Barbara Lo Faro

A tribute to Francesca Woodman

The art exhibition NUDA invites visitors to immerse themselves in an intense dialogue between the art Francesca Woodman and the sensitivity of Barbara Lo Faro, celebrating the talent and the search for beauty in its most authentic expression. The connection between the two forms of art is not immediately obvious, as the two artists have different artistic styles and obvious dissimilar historical contexts. However, both focus in their art. on the theme of identity, femininity and intimacy.

Francesca Woodman was an American photographer active in the 1970s, known for her black and white photographs exploring themes such as fragility and self consciousness. Her images often include her own nude or semi-nude body, or parts of it, together with objects, environments and even other people. The photographer often used techniques such as double exposure and blur to create ethereal and dreamlike images.

Barbara Lo Faro, on the other hand, is a contemporary Italian artist who works mainly with painting. Her works often represent women in intimate or private situations.Her women are often depicted in vulnerable positions looking directly at the observer with intense and thoughtful expressions.

In front of the canvases of Barbara Lo Faro which portray naked and evanescent female figures, the viewer observes an artistic expression that evokes a feeling of delicacy and mystery. Her naked women painted with a nuanced texture, seem almost to be merged with the surrounding environment. The absence of clothing and their evanescent character may suggest a symbolic representation of purity, vulnerability or transience of existence.

The paintings recall concepts of ethereal and fleeting beauty and evoke reflections on the ephemeral of life and its preciousness. The beauty and harmony of the forms in the female figures of Barbara Lo Faro can be interpreted as an invitation to reflect on the concept of femininity connected with nature or on the idea of femininity as a symbol of transformation and rebirth.
