Rosanna is a contemporary painter and drawing artist. Born in 1972, she was raised in a small village closed to Ravenna, in Italy, and since 2010, she has been travelling and living in different countries and continents. She is currently based in Helmond in the Netherlands.
After having deepened her artistic studies at the Teekenschool and the Gerrit Rietveld Academy in Amsterdam, she started her path as a professional artist.
Having seen and experienced so much about the human condition during her travels and in her life, her art is about emotions, vulnerability and humanity and every aspect of the visual expression, which involves the human life experience, is attractive and compelling to her.
Abstract is for her a natural language, and more than words it can reveal and shape her thoughts, feelings and intentions. In the abstraction, the vibrations of colors are tuned to a deeper level in connection to her inner emotions and to the viewer’s ones.
Another medium that Rosanna explores to connect to humanity is drawing, using charcoal, willow charcoal or graphite. Rosanna uses her drawings to create an instant memory: like an old picture, colors fade and the image just keeps the essential. Her portraits are realistic with a personal, investigating glance on the subject.
