Roberta decided to title this work Il Velo because every time she works on multiple layers feels like she’s dressing herself in veils, one layer one veil, over and over. More layers, more peace, more balance, more calmness and darkness. It would make no sense to deny Roberta’s addictive tendency to work towards greyscales and darkness, to make everything subtle and calm, just like a whisper in a dark room, or the sound of your breathing in a place full of silence. In this work, Roberta also worked hard to push her skills and technique using thin calligraphy brushes to achieve a quite dense layer of symbols, shapes and forms, dots and spots, overlapping these symbols with the wider and darker brush strokes that dance and evolve through the ‘canvas’. Between brushes and fine liners Roberta creates again highly detailed and intricate compositions, playing with her need and addiction to always push the boundaries and think freely, not outside the box because, in the end, there is no box.
