Description This girl has spiders for a lace top, but they are escaping. She endures. Are they controlling her? Or does she control them? We all have things we endure but most are not worn so openly.Oil on Canvas8X10
Lea Barozzi, Portland Member Since November 2008 Artist Statement The aesthetic world of Lea Barozzi is a purgatorial realm where a living fog sustains a sense of static tension and freezes the emotional states of its subjects in contemplative introspection. It is punctuated by symbolic props that engage the viewer with instant metaphorical recognition and elements of surprise which draw on our love of mystery. It is populated with little maidens and echoes of discarded dolls who are no strangers to loneliness but persevere to find their way in the dark out of the corners they have found themselves painted into.
Lea's art helps us to explore the perils and peace in the isolation we all find ourselves reluctantly enjoying when no one else is there.
