Woman Reading (second version)

Stefania Pinsone, 40 cm x 85 cm - acrylic painting on canvas - 2017 The primary source of inspiration for this portrait (my own portrait…) is Gerhard Richter’s "Woman Reading", but here the technique enhances the meaning of the artwork:  Richter is the painter of the Polaroid era, my goal was to represent the era of the digital revolution and how that impacts our life

Digimarc orchid

Digimarc orchid

Stefania Pinsone, 61 cm x 80 cm - acrylic painting on canvas - 2013 The viewer is attracted by the colours, as well as by the ambiguity and the strong symbols of sexuality in images that capture the attention in the constant stream of images in the media. The aesthetic exhibition is often exploited for commercial reasons exemplified by the digimarcs on the orchid.

Amorphophallus titanum

Amorphophallus titanum

Stefania Pinsone, 61 cm x 80 cm - acrylic painting on canvas - 2013 The Amorphophallus, on the other hand, is noteworthy with its masculine form that is rare, even among images intended for a female audience, the naked male body is, in fact, rarely used for commercial purposes.

The Kiss (SOLD)

The Kiss (SOLD)

Stefania Pinsone, 40 cm x 62 cm - acrylic painting on canvas - 2013 (in the Atkinson Collection Gallery, Chicago) There is an apparent paradox in the contemporaneous presence of exhibitionism and voyeurism in many of the images. In “The Kiss”, the image is subject to conditions of partial covering and the attempt to guarantee the anonymity by the use of a tight frame, but on the other hand, the subject of the image becomes even more explicit than it would be in the real world.
