Cristina Fornarelli.

Cristina Fornarelli is a contemporary figurative artist.

Cristina was born in Bari, in Southern Italy where light and colors have influenced her art.

She lives and works in Rome and she has always loved to tell and investigate the intimate world.

Her figures, whether goddesses or ordinary women, painted and colored in a pop key embody the ideals of contemporary women. Her works are an evolution and are the synthesis of years of research.

Her figures look to the natural world and to their most intimate and profound part, through which they tune in, slow down and rediscover the creative force!

In the latest production "the classic pop" the mythological figure acts as a bridge between experience and the cosmos, between everyday life and a cosmic dimension. The search for the origin of the feminine in myth, as opposed to a constantly changing world, where aesthetic canons become an almost unattainable and ephemeral chimera, the myth itself allows us to question ourselves and also provides us with answers that implement the imagination, recovering the past, or rather the history of what we have been, evolving it into what we are today.

The search for universal beauty and its sacredness represented by classical statues does not change over time, unlike the ephemeral and fast aesthetic canons and the inclusion of nature embodies eternity, a constant and immutable repetition that brings us back to the sense of beauty universal.

In the artworks with elements of pop culture, the artist tries to combine universal beauty with a part of irony unknown to classical beauty by humanizing the figure of the myth, probing various types of intimate human beings.

 In all her artworks, her brushstrokes skilfully glide on the canvas with explosive colors, where the juxtaposed color pixels create images that perfectly reflect the speed of the times we live in and where the same color pixels make up the whole just like the pieces of our lives!
