Analysis on the human perception of the interaction between water and light
Valeria's work is a visual research on water that starts and goes beyond the personal connection to it. Human perception is influenced by many factors such as the symbology associated with water through different cultures, philosophy, its physics and chemistry. These studies sustain the visual creations that aims to increase consciousness about the inner value of the compound revealing its natural movement and dynamism through the interaction with light. Hyperrealism is used as a tool for research in order to share the truth of water unravelled by the artist's vision. Free from the observable references the work expands in abstract images inspired by the aforesaid visual study on the states of the molecule H2O.
Japanese culture and aesthetics profoundly influence Valeria's art insight and life philosophy, especially Wabi Sabi philosophy and the practice of Shodo (the Japanese traditional art of calligraphy), which she came in contact during the AIA (Artist in ASO) art residency program in Minami-Oguni ( Kumamoto Prefecture, September- November 2019 ).
The Ink work is the result of the connection and fusion between the Shodo art practice and her research on water.
