“The real voyage of discovery
does not consist in seeking new lands,
but in having new eyes "
La Recherche by Brigitta Rossetti, to quote the French writer Marcel Proust, linked to the expressive power of her original and complex plots and to the meticulous descriptions of the inner processes linked to memory, human feeling and the background on which everything happens; his Recherche, in fact, a metaphorical journey that insinuates itself in time and memory and which winds its way within a syntactic structure essentially composed of a merciful grace and vehement stratifications, whose plot focuses broadly on a I narrator, which strongly requires on the one hand a very great analytical capacity and on the other the exaltation of the intuitive forms of knowledge of the world and of the interiority of the human being.
Through the use of enamels, acrylics, blotting papers, fabrics, mixed techniques and the integration of materials of different nature, among others, both in the pictorial works and in the installation ones, Rossetti is constantly looking for a balance between figuration and abstraction, creative crossroads where the artist herself gives herself the opportunity to deepen the definition of space and the relationship between it and the work of art. It is an allegorically odeporic artistic creativity in which a certain rational, cosmopolitan, naturalistic and anthropocentric objectivity coexist, and a greater emotionality and subjectivity of the motions of the soul.
Visionary and multifaceted, Brigitta Rossetti was born in the Piacenza countryside where she still lives and works, in her atelier which has been converted from an old barn: grazing cows, wheat fields, ancient trees and natural chromatic manifestations are just some of the peculiar elements that make up the prolific scenario in which everything is generated.
The infinitely large and the infinitely small, the importance of both natural and magical elements, poetry, the encounter with the absolute, the oneiric, descriptions on the social and historical-cultural aspects of the places visited and of the people she met, are just some of the themes dear to her, so much so as to allow her to tell us about adventures, explorations and discoveries, almost always adorned with shades of bucolic and landscape character with a romantic flavor, for those everywhere who felt young enough to stay curious about the world *.
