Emilia Faro's artistic path boasts a confluence of hints of personal life experience regarding themes like deliverance and Liberty and more general reflections on the condition of modern man and his relationship with the environment, the Infinite and Nature.
Emilia Faro’s art is pure and profoundly human. It represents the primary instincts in their emergence, ambivalence, conflicts and sublimation, but most of all in their evolution. The pleasure and the pain, Eros and Thanatos, which belong to life, are represented with naturalness and dignity.
Ugliness, danger and aggressiveness are always lying in wait, behind the scenes: obstacles, threats, and enemies to fight and overcome.
The artist lays herself bare with courage, putting herself on show. She does not propose a sickly sweet vision of existence. The path of self- therapeutic emancipation, which is present in the creative process, transcends autobiographical facts, raising itself up to universal epic, creating a contagious, moving transverse odyssey, which involves and overwhelms the spectator.
Nature, present in the sculptures, is maternal and complicit. It protects, purifies, saves and assists.
The quest for lightness, liberation, transformation and emancipation of identity undergoing change are crucial. Crisis, linked to conflict, is resolved progressively, through the arduous conquest of an existential equilibrium, in the process of adapting to inner and outer reality.
Setting the figures in an almost surreal space and the choice of a slowed-down time frame activate a meditative process that liberates, cares, elevates and takes you to ecstasy.
The creatures represented by Emilia, human and not, are protagonists of brief and intense magical experiences, symbolic of profound changes. They are statues, shapes, mannequins, inanimate models, vegetal elements, virtual beings full of beauty and mystery. They conquer life through resistance, courage, determination, the possibility of abandoning themselves and others, and of letting themselves and others go. They become human, more than that: mystical, shamanistic and therapeutic.
Their vulnerabilities are potentialities and resources.
The desert they set off from at the start of a story is transformed into a floral garden, Eden, where life triumphs over death.
