The work of Sofia Rocchetti explores what we are but do not wish to show: aggression and its multiple forms and colours. Her paintings make geometry, volume and three-dimensionality into elements of a surreal and intimate anthropomorphism. A profound, atavistic and endemic reality, first deconstructed and then recomposed from those signs that find their greatest expression in pure pigment and the light that naturally transpires from the paper support.
The “Singers” series (2001) is one of the few works to which Sofia Rocchetti has given a frame. This frame is an integral part of the work, made with wooden boards finished by the weather conditions in which the artist left them. Thus, it merges to become one with the shades of grey that envelop the painting. The greys are warmed and moved by the intense shades of red worn by each of the tenors, represented in this work with the signs and the language that the artist has developed throughout her artistic career.
Technique: contemporary pictorial work, created with the pure pigment technique on paper.
Cleaning: to remove any dust that may accumulate on the surface of the work, simply use a soft brush. Never use sponges, rags or other implements as they may be abrasive. Never use damp cloths.
