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
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.
