Her Biography

Artist Patrizia Simonetti lives and works in Rome where she attended the Free Academy of Fine Arts of Rome “Rome University of Fine Arts”. She studied human drawing and did her study, training and practice of colors with several roman and international artists.

At the beginning of her career as a painter, Patrizia attends the painting school of Contemporary Art ‘Romacreat’ in the heart of Rome under the supervision of Maestro Oliviero Leonardi. During this experience, Patrizia improves oil on canvas painting skills and starts developing the intensity of line and color with all its infinite variations of tonalities that are still present in all her paintings.

Another important learning experience is with painter Marta Cilento, a pupil of Maestro Beppe Assenza, who will guide her to experiment water color painting techniques and to deepen the study of colors through the use of several techniques. It is in this period that the lightness of her chromaticisms, playing with light and shadow, leads to the creation of delicate and nuanced paintings that are drawn on papers and canvas and originate from a speculative reflection on the meaning of life.

She deepened her painting skills in Italy and abroad in seminars on colors held by Donald Hall, director of the ‘Free School of Antroposophic painting of Bozen’ and in several conferences on visual and fine arts organized by the Antroposophical societies of Sweden and Switzerland, where she also had the possibility of refining her creative and artistic sensibility.

She then attended the school of artist Sandro Trotti (honorary Professor at the academy of Beijing, Guangzhou and Hubei), attending his lectures that helped refine some stylistical aspects of her painting stylein a moment of artistic change.

She attended an engraving school and attended the formation of Arteterapia in the Psico&Art school of Rome. She is also a sculptor.

Patrizia Simonetti’s paintings help give expression to solitude, to the melancholy that comes with her existential research but also to the joy and delicate sensibility that she uses to search for the true and authentic beauty that guides every thing and feeds her painting style with brilliant and bright colors. This beauty is an expression of a great vitality and freedom from any expression conditioning. Her style is characterized by multiple colors and lines traced with care by the artist and drawn on paper and canvas, with expanded gestures, soul conditions and deep emotions that aim to express the existential condition of human beings. Also her drawing of the human figure, when it is represented, is surrounded by lines and colors inserted on the canvas in order to remember that our human existence is not detached from the world that surrounds us but is united in order to develop a harmonious relationship between us and the world.

She participated to several personal and group expositions in Italy and abroad and she received several awards and prizes for her artistic work.

Billedkunstner

Billedkunstneren bor i Rom hvor hun ligeledes har studeret på Det Frie Kunstakademi i Rom “ Rome University of fine Arts” og forskellige studier hos læremestre, hvormed hun har kunnet uddybe sit studie om menneskefigurer og udvide sin farvesensibilitet, der får hende til at udtrykke sig gennem et univers der udgøres af intense farver, og som samtidigt er i besiddelse af en udtryksfuld sarthed.

I starten af sin karriere som billedkunstner læste hun på malerskolen Romacreat for Nutidskunst lige i Roms hjerte, en skole som ledes af Mesteren Oliviero Leonardi.
Under denne studieperiode med læremesteren, malte hun udelukkende med oliefarver på lærreder og eksperimenterede stregernes og farvernes intensitet, med deres utallige tonalitetsvarianter, som hun stadig udtrykker i sine malerier.
Et andet afgørende møde var det med billedkunstneren Marta Cilento, som var elev hos Mesteren Beppe Assenza, og som førte hende til at eksperimentere akvarelteknikker og uddybe farvestudiet gennem overlapning med sarte lasurfarver. Det var netop i denne periode at letheden i hendes kromatik opstod, med lys- og skyggespillet, som skabte sarte pittoreske værker og mangefarvede nuancer, der førtes ud på papir og lærreder med en harmoni der kun fremkommer gennem en meditativ handling.
Der er ikke kun i Italien at hun har uddybet sin malerkunst, men også gennem studieseminarer om farver der blev holdt af Donald Hall, Direktør for Den Frie Antroposofiske Malerskole i Bolzano, og ved konferencer om visuel kunst og billedkunst der blev arrangeret af Antroposofisk Samfund i Sverige og Schweiz, hvor hun har kunnet finpudse sin kreative og maleriske sensibilitet.
Hun mødtes ofte på Mester Sandro Trottis værksted og deltog i hans timer, og netop det har beriget hendes kunstneriske gang i et meget specielt øjeblik i hendes kunstneriske liv, hvor hun havde brug for en yderligere forandring.
Hun har gået på en graveringsskole og har taget en uddannelse i Kunstterapi hos Psico&Art i Rom. Hun har i årevis også udført skulpturer, som begejstrer hende ligeså meget som maleriet.

Hun prøver gennem sine lærreder at udtrykke den ensomhed, melankoli der ledsager hende gennem sin eksistentielle søgen, men også glæde og en sart sensibilitet ved søgen efter den ægte autentiske skønhed, der får alt i bevægelse, og som giver næring til hendes billedkunst gennem hendes lyse og klare farver, der netop er udtryk for stor livsglæde og frihed i alle udtryksforhold.
Sammen med de mange farver, linjer og penselstrøg der omhyggeligt udføres af Kunstneren, males der med store bevægelser, stemninger og dybe følelser som tilhører os alle, på papiret eller lærredet. Også den menneskelige figur omkredses, når den vises, af streger og farver ud på hele lærredet, for at påminde os om at vores menneskelige eksistens hverken adskilles eller separeres fra det som omringer os, men at de er forenerede så vi kan udvikle os.

Hun har deltaget i utallige personlige og kollektive udstillinger, i Italien som i udlandet og har modtaget forskellige præmier og anerkendelser for sit forløb i sin kunstneriske søgni
