Valeria Latorre is a self-taught visual artist with a scientific background. She is based in the South of Italy.
She believes Art and Science are deeply connected, continuous researches driven by inspiration and intuition and structured by studying and experimenting.
Her main focus is on water, it is expressed through hyperrealistic paintings, photography and video making.
The aim is to show water in ways it is not usually seen, exploring and expressing its wholeness from a scientific, philosophical and visual point of view, with a special attention to the interaction between water, light and movement at a human perception level.
Philosophy and science studies support the evolution of the research which is deeply influenced by Japanese Wabi Sabi aesthetics.
