"Art has always represented the evolution of our civilization in all its forms. Each artist represents it’s time and espresses himself through a personal language that springs from feelings, emotions, desires, dream like visions"
Giuseppa Matraxia was born in San Giovanni Gemini, inland of Sicily, in 1955 and from a young age she was passionate about painting from life. Giuseppa paints using different techniques: oil, acrylic, water color, ceramic. The love for art is great as much as her love for her land and her canvases are a testimony to this. Giuseppina has long exhibited her works in solo and group exhibitions in Italy and abroad.
“I am married and a mother to two wonderful children. I am the daughter to this millenary land, rich in cultural, artistic and landscape heritage. Being told often that the love for my land shines through and in my works, fills me with joy. Each blank canvas for me is like a child to dress, with all the feeling a mother can give, caress after caress, aware that those caresses will soon be returned to me”“
The opinion of the Governance
“The artist was chosen for her beautiful works that seem to be the result of the interiorization of a magical Sicily not only dreamed of but also truly lived. Perfect mastery of the technique that highlights suggestive details. Great artist Giuseppa Matraxia”
