Sicilia Camaleontica

Paintings Acrylic on canvas
Single artwork


Description by the artist

In this work of mine, Sicily is seen as a woman with a particular expression on her face, peering eyes filled with inscrutable wisdom;  she is like a chameleon with iridescent colors that change in relation to the environment in which she lives. She has a firm, reflective, hieratic gaze, expressing the greatness of the character that knows how to grow and change; as a priestess of colors, she knows how to dominate them all, how to balance them in a bright chromatic relationship, an unmistakable expression of our beloved Sicily.

The artwork in the Sicilian culture

By the Governance of Sicilian Artisan Foundation

Sicily is a land of a thousand vibrant colors, which inspired this work. And Sicily is also chameleon-like in everything: in food, in art, in the somatic features of its inhabitants…. A land of contrasts,  a child of over ten dominations  has undergone in 3,000 years. A chameleon land, indeed.

The Governance also suggests

The objective of the Governance is both to safeguard the traditions and ancient crafts of the people of Sicily, and to sustain economically the Artisans and the Artists, both the real ethno-anthropologists of the country.
