Marilyn incontra Visconti

Marilyn incontra Visconti

Painting, Portrait, 50x70x5cm
I made ​​a portrait painting it on a very basic material
The effect created is deliberately aged, like a period picture ruined by the passing time, but that did not affect her smile again - and always - recognizable, distinctive and dazzling.
The red glass on the left corner is another story: I was fortunate to be able to collect the broken glass now, making up a tower in Liberty style villa in the famous film director Luchino Visconti "dovecote" in Ischia, fragments are collected in earth, a work of art reduced to smithereens by time and neglect.
The glasses are for me a precious heirloom which I'm doing other work for the past two years.
In my fantasy I imagined a spiritual encounter between the actress and director who in this life I do not think has ever happened.
If nothing happens by chance, will make sense to have a relic of the Visconti and have the opportunity to participate in an exhibition of Marilyn?
In this moment of my life I find myself working on both my imagination and I wanted them together, who knows maybe the two of them have already met in another world in another reality ...
I have various colors of glass, I chose the red because the color is more valuable and that of her lipstick, her immortal smile.

Un'opera che restituisce l'immortalità di una Diva senza tempo, lasciando aperto una sorta di "portale dimensionale" verso il cinema del Maestro del neorealismo ed il suo mondo. Un incontro ideale, quasi onirico, carico di grande suggestione emotiva. Complimenti alla bravissima autrice.
