Silvana Pintozzi is a nomad who lives between two countries and two cultures - Italy, her country of birth and France, her country of adoption. She has worked in several professions in the field of literature, plastic and visual arts, with a constant common thread: the desire to put life into images.
The exhibition entitled "Les Formes du Songe" takes place at the Galerie de l'Ancien Presbytère from May 1 to 29, 2022.
Impactful paintings that challenge the viewer both by their compositions and by the colors. Scenes of life that leave no one indifferent. By looking at Silvana Pintozzi's paintings, we can give free rein to our imagination, to tell our own stories. Stories that belong to us, or come straight from our dreams.
As the artist says: “Painting is physical. It is the work of a mason, a plasterer, a cleaner, a demolisher.
We cover, we smooth, we add and then we remove, we scrape, we erase and we start again: that's the job of the artist-painter, it's the chase of a dream image to tame it , to bend it to its own desire, to freeze it. Until the exhaustion that leads to a truce if not to reconciliation ".
If the artist starts from a dream image to tame it, the spectator starts from the finished image to abandon himself to his dreams.
Open every day except Tuesday from 10 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. and from 2 p.m. to 6 p.m.
