Giuditta R. is fascinated by and curious to explore the ambiguous, the paradox, the mental faculties, the dreams and nightmares, the Human and its dark face. She creates most of her artworks by using graphite and mixed techniques on cardboard. The inspiration for the art is drawn from the Avant-garde’s Expressionism, New Figuration by Francis Bacon, cinema, contemporary photography, video games, crime archives, etc.
The artworks are generally created in a black white while little particulars are underlined in each artwork by colored glitters, shiny spangles and little objects, emerging drastically or with difficulty, from each representation. Bright elements that symbolize the “eyes” of awareness: "…small details that shine in the obscurity, bright jewels, hamlets, lucky charms, indicate hope for a future of consciousness…"
Looking at Giuditta R.’s drawings is akin to entering an ancestor's gallery. The spectator’s visions are being overwhelmed by something unexpected, restless and staggering. Faces of youngsters often stare at the viewer arousing a sense of awe and submission. In this manner, one enters a dark fairy-tale where heroic children – such as those from the Grimm Brothers’ tales – intend to save us from the violence of ogres and witches, by adopting cruel methods themselves.
These protagonists allow for the appearance of deep psychological features that turn them into messengers of the surfacing subconscious, something that all cultures seem to have in common. They symbolize the “ghosts” within the human, crystallized as particular feelings or childish roles. This collection of beings describes the singular development of the human in a society which is passing through a transformation and a universal crisis rooted in the lack of spirituality.
Giuditta’s project in general is a deep reflection about some of the essential issues of our lives such as identity as well as spiritual evolution.
