Secret Essence of Italy presents Sabìr – “Visionary Bridge”, September 12-18, 2019

‘VISIONARY BRIDGE’ a breakthrough series of unique and sophisticated artworks by Luigia d’Alfonso e Ada Perla, Sabìr

Curated by Penelope Filacchione

PORTRAIT-PICTA Sabìr is a unitary whole composed of several canvases called ‘canovacci’. The name chosen by the artists to identify this new form of artwork refers to the language spoken in ancient times in harbors and docks around the Mediterranean Sea. The meticulous and delicate work of juxtaposition and binding carried out with this gauze to integrate the space left by the ‘missing words’ weaves the fragments together and renders a complete narration.

Organic pigments made with moistures from ancient recipes are used to create imaginary abstract patterns and shapes on precious fabric that take the viewer on a visual trip and an emotional journey that catch the imagination in new surprising ways. Pictorial textures that shape thought and silence, impalpable and yet visually powerful tapestries, born from the alchemy of color and friendship that unites their artistic partnership.
