Artist Statement While over the years Loredana has concentrated on commission work, lately she has resolved to make herself more visible in the art world. Recently Loredana was invited to participate, and then became a commission selected finalist, in the 2013 International Art Competition organized by the Taiwan International Contemporary Arts Association. Her two commission selected works can be viewed by following this link: http://www.arts.org.tw/2013/eng/result.html
Manifestly, the selected works, known as “Sutera: Rabato Antico” and “Villaggio Antico” are also published on this site. Simply scroll down the profile page to see the works. The originals of the two works will be on show from 3rd to 6th May 2013 at the Taipei A.R.T Revolution show held at the Taipei World Trade Centre.

Loredana Messina was born in Palermo, Sicily, but now lives in London with her family where she is a teacher of Italian despite having studied law at Palermo University. She started painting oil on canvas in 1971 and has matured over time. A self taught artist who loves nature from where she draws inspiration. Principally she paints to commission. An artist of a sensitive nature who brings out in her canvases the manifest beauty found amongst everyday life which she brings to us with her uniquely vivid colour spectrum. Her love for her country ensures that she represents her land in many of her canvases which with her intense colours ignite authentic emotions from within.

Loredana Messina nasce a Palermo, in Sicilia, ma risiede da anni a Londra con la sua famiglia. Dopo gli studi di giurisprudenza all’universita’ di Palermo, oggi e’ insegnante d’italiano. Inizia a dipingere a olio nel 1971. Pittrice autodidatta che ama la natura da cui trae ispirazione. Principalmente dipinge su commissione. Artista dalla personalita’ sensibile, fa trasparire dalle sue tele una ricerca della bellezza di scorci di vita quotidiana. La sua pittura presenta un tessuto coloristico molto vivo. L’amore per la sua terra la porta a rappresentarla in molte sue tele e con i suoi colori intensi riesce a farci vivere autentiche emozioni.

Un noto critic d'arte ha detto di lei:-

"Paesaggi, scorci, scene di genere sono i soggetti preferiti di Loredana Messina che con grande spontaneità ed immediatezza evoca magiche vibrazioni e fresche atmosfere. Le sue opere, eteree e formalmente disinvolte, sono giocate su cromie tenui e delicate che vivono liberamente di ritmo proprio, definendo con spaziosa musicalità orizzonti e sviluppi colmi di suggestioni e di intime emozioni.

Possiede, l’Artista, uno stile pulito e modulato, una capacità gestuale fluida e sicura, un segno istintivo e spontaneo che non possono non rimandarci alla migliore tradizione naif, fantasiosa e primitiva, la cui pittura rivela sempre una purezza e una serenità straordinarie che sgorgano indiscutibilmente da vocazione autentica e convinta. "
Umberto Demichelis
