Minha Visão / My Vision

PORTRAITS OF THE SUBCONSCIOUS MIND

By Adriana Garibaldi

If I should define my painting briefly, I would say it is a continuous search for my inner self. For me, painting is a dialogue with this eternal self, my partner for ages, reliving past experiences not even brought to conscious, yet unveiled in each brushstroke.

Subdued by the human figure, I paint in an almost obsessive way, as if it were difficult for my body to follow my restless visions, that outburst through colors and forms as a magic kaleidoscope of thoughts, emotions and feelings. This inner quest transcends present and time in search of a genuine timeless art; the inner nature that reveals itself in the visible body of the art work; the wholeness of infinity manifested in the finite.

My search toward giving concrete form to what is abstract and formless is a permanent imprint in my work, as if wishing to individualize and partially organize reality, drawing it away from the chaos of soul’s emotions.
