Alessandra Rossi statment: Alessandra’s love for site-specific installations began in Venice,
where she used the walls of abandoned palazzos to place her symbolic and figurative imagery in the context of the multi-layered textures of Venetian architecture.
Her work has always explored the relationship between what is visible and what is invisible, what is superficial, on the surface and what is inside, deeper, hidden. She successfully conjures an ambiguous environment, one where presence is virtual, where people exist in the memory of place.
Her work lies between narrative and abstraction, responding to her instinct, her discernment with space and time, as an expression of her moods and thoughts. Time is essential her work, as the development of a theme unfolds with the working out of thoughts and emotions on canvas, helping her to comprehend that which eludes her. More : Alessandra Rossi
