Full Artist's statement
"The painting takes shape outside any intentional painter's control. Colors and lines are fused together, taking the viewer into dream land. They are mirrors of the emotions, thoughts and feelings. The final form is never a thought but an inspiration for the viewer: the beginning of a story, a path, a journey. The canvas becomes a parallel universe. The colors and lines are the artist's feelings and emotions to get away from reality, giving life to places and images between reality and dream. In the silence of the brushwork, the emotions emerge on the canvas." Tania De Gregorio, Artist, Rome, Italy
Current works are acrylic paintings on canvas in search of new modes of visual, philosophical and spiritual expression. I work in a meditation, a flow of strokes, one leading to another. I do not rely on visual references in the world. Meaning is put forth as an emotional experience, also influenced by sound and music. Each dot, line, curve and circle is intentional, resulting in a playful and lyrical composition. My complex structures allow for ever changing meaning. As paintings become more complex, there is an subconscious emphasis on asymmetrical balance. My use of negative space creates impact and power, defining elements I want to draw upon, as well as allowing for a greater feel for compositional balance. I am boldly spontaneous, non-directional, non-objective, and painterly as opposed to more conceptual or analytical. My paintings have both an organic and architectural feel.
