Medium: Acrylic on canvas
Dimensions: 50 x 40 cm
The Artist: Anita Lanzetta
Anita explores a wide range of art disciplines. Her artistic roots are based in the fashion industry which continues to influence her use of textiles and mixed media. During her time at UWE she has focused on the practice of painting, with influences from Renaissance, Baroque and Abstract Expressionist art. Anita explores the inner shapes of the human being and its perception of feelings: she is interested in identity, sexuality, self consciousness and awareness, and the way us humans deal with our personalities and egos. The representations of these human features is indicated in her use of colours, exploring the relationships of specific colours when placed next to others. Anita also uses patterns and shapes that translate feelings and emotions, creating a connection between the colours she uses and how we respond to the flow they create.
