TREATMENT

" It is in our capacity to distinguish and to differentiate images that allows beauty to subsist. The definition of beauty is shattered by society and is reborn in art."

Since my younger years, I have always been enthralled with the hope of sharing my personal outlook of the world of cinema, beauty, glamour and celebrities while dreaming of experiencing it as they do. I create work that is now motivated by my related experience of the alluring entertainment world and my paintings immortalize the preconceived expectations of beauty.  My previous works dealt with the contrasting fragility and aggression of ones constant battle with oneself and the fabricated conception of beauty and splendor in a mediated world. 

Beneath the surface of some of my colorful chaotic paintings lies an overwhelming dark subtext; the provoking practice of judging human beings by standards having no basic relation to their quality.  This loss of innocence visibly demonstrates the ever-changing character of life itself.  My images are not a sincere study but more of a generalized idea and I am less attracted in reproducing an exact or realistic portrayal of a photograph.

 

In my latest work I was stimulated by some of the world’s greatest artists of yesterday and today. Recreating famous portraits, my images are frequently influenced by the pop culture of the 1950s. Perceived in a distinct manner by each being and possessing a powerful emotive quality, color is at the heart of my work. I choose to fill each one of my canvases with carefully orchestrated shades and tints creating images that leave a soothing sense of pleasure to the observer. It is in our capacity to distinguish and to differentiate images that allows beauty to subsist. The definition of beauty is shattered by society and is reborn in art.

BIOGRAPHY

Born in Montreal, Quebec but raised in Italy, Elisabetta has always demonstrated tremendous ability in all things creative.

 

In her early career, Elisabetta’s passion for performance art led her to excel in both modeling and acting; however, she was always drawn to visual arts which is why Elisabetta decided to study in Creative Arts where she learned to play with colors, painted nudes and experimented with paints. Not fully satisfied, Elisabetta then went into design where she found a profound passion for negative and positive spaces, collages, faux-fini's and of course...paints. It is at this point in her life where her love for the arts developed into a strong talent for portraiture. 

 

In her early adult life Elisabetta’s attraction to bright colors led her to experiment with acrylic paint, which became her medium of choice. Elisabetta has since presented dozens of collections and her art is showcased in galleries and private collections around the world. She is highly sought after for her commissioned pieces, especially among celebrities. Some of her most recent celebrity clients include personalities such as Muhammad Ali, Celine Dion & the Kardashians to name a few.
