Artist SIMONETTI PATRIZIA , ROME, ITALY
Artist Patrizia Simonetti lives and works in Rome where she attended the Free Academy of Fine Arts of Rome “Rome University of Fine Arts”. She studied human drawing and did her study, training and practice of colors with several roman and international artists.
At the beginning of her career as a painter, Patrizia attends the painting school of Contemporary Art ‘Romacreat’ in the heart of Rome under the supervision of Maestro Oliviero Leonardi. During this experience, Patrizia improves oil on canvas painting skills and starts developing the intensity of line and color with all its infinite variations of tonalities that are still present in all her paintings.
Another important learning experience is with painter Marta Cilento, a pupil of Maestro Beppe Assenza, who will guide her to experiment water color painting techniques and to deepen the study of colors through the use of several techniques. It is in this period that the lightness of her chromaticisms, playing with light and shadow, leads to the creation of delicate and nuanced paintings that are drawn on papers and canvas and originate from a speculative reflection on the meaning of life.
She deepened her painting skills in Italy and abroad in seminars on colors held by Donald Hall, director of the ‘Free School of Antroposophic painting of Bozen’ and in several conferences on visual and fine arts organized by the Antroposophical societies of Sweden and Switzerland, where she also had the possibility of refining her creative and artistic sensibility.
She then attended the school of artist Sandro Trotti (honorary Professor at the academy of Beijing, Guangzhou and Hubei), attending his lectures that helped refine some stylistical aspects of her painting stylein a moment of artistic change.
She attended an engraving school and attended the formation of Arteterapia in the Psico&Art school of Rome. She is also a sculptor.
Patrizia Simonetti’s paintings help give expression to solitude, to the melancholy that comes with her existential research but also to the joy and delicate sensibility that she uses to search for the true and authentic beauty that guides every thing and feeds her painting style with brilliant and bright colors. This beauty is an expression of a great vitality and freedom from any expression conditioning. Her style is characterized by multiple colors and lines traced with care by the artist and drawn on paper and canvas, with expanded gestures, soul conditions and deep emotions that aim to express the existential condition of human beings. Also her drawing of the human figure, when it is represented, is surrounded by lines and colors inserted on the canvas in order to remember that our human existence is not detached from the world that surrounds us but is united in order to develop a harmonious relationship between us and the world.
She participated to several personal and group expositions in Italy and abroad and she received several awards and prizes for her artistic work.
