“In my art, Nature acts as a mirror of the inner world of every human being…”
Florence, the cradle of Art, is Letizia Pecci’s homeland. There she has accomplished her studies in Literature, Art History and Philosophy and worked as event planner, before moving to Berlin with her family.
The underwater world is not only the one under the seas and the oceans, but the one hidden inside us. It is a universe full of colors as well as feelings, which are often difficult to grasp. In the painting, images of leaves can be confused with images of fish gliding by, beautiful and elusive. The colors are deliberately blurred but on the whole brilliant. Once again playing between the abstract and the real.
As a young girl, she has always been attracted to drawing and the use of colors, which she perceived as the most intimate freedom of expression. Never stopping painting and experimenting, while attending courses helped keeping her updated to new techniques and trends.
“Anima” is the Italian word for Soul, as the essence of every human being. It is the flame of life, a beautiful and unique flower that does not die but regenerates itself
Letizia’s greatest source of inspiration is nature in all its forms, while often referring to her homeland, Tuscany. That land of quiet, harmonious hills and almost unspoiled nature is reminiscent of the undulating motion of joyful paintings. Even patterns and printed motifs used by Letizia, recall the "geometry" of Tuscan nature that, while maintaining its wild character, is tamed by men with vineyards and olive groves. However, both in her landscapes and in her flowers she recreates a fantastic, dreamlike, almost fairy-tale world, where dreams, aspirations, desires can be achieved. A place where you can escape but above all where you can feel good.
“For me, the use of collage represents an infinite world of possibilities of expression…”
In particular, the landscapes are often images of distant places, but for Letizia they are always reachable. The road is steep, long and often not without obstacles but always as white as a sheet of paper that needs to be filled in. It is not easy to reach one's dreams and goals but it is not possible to escape the call to try to achieve them.
The lines in Letizia’s paintings are always undulating and never straight and precise. These seem to chase each other, intertwine, turning into dots, nets and again into new patterns and new lines. The landscapes are conceived as travelling snapshots: as if the viewer is sitting in a train or car and the surrounding landscape is flowing by.
