Elena Ritorto, born in Gioiosa Ionica, Reggio Calabria, where she presently lives and works. Her artistic training is visible in her figurative paintings and her work is versatile and multi-faceted while her skilled and accurate technique gives her pieces a fascinating charm that entices the viewer. From a stylistic point, the various themes and represented subjects, along with the use of fluid brush stokes, and in some cases soft, a range of lively colors with particular effects of light, but also with dark and strong tones, are all expressions of her continuous pictorial search. The artist’s passionate strength is revealed through her ideas and of her creative thoughts, which catches the sentiments and sensitivity of the creator.
