Gloria Ronchi is involved in Visual Art as a medium of her narration. Through painting, drawings, video and lighting installations she often combines her artwork to express the feeling of the ‘Liquid Modernity’. “I look for aesthetic challenges of light in stunning and diverse ways, exploring its creative potential to express ideas and emotions, creating surprising encounters”. Her artwork does not give answers but rather raises questions, reflecting the daily contradictions of human experience in the liquidmodern world as defined in Bauman’s literature.


Forest Collection “My current work is inspired by the aesthetic of the forest, all its structures, the richness of lines, planes and visual layers, the strong contrast and the changing light condition. Many different aspects of the forest fascinate me; one is the memory of enchanted forests in fairy stories, visions and feelings that bring me back to my childhood. Another is the richness of its contradictions: its epical strength along with its fragile beauty; its enigmatic depth and its vulnerability.� Last production of Gloria’s paintings is based on the theme of sustainability and the aim is to vehicle this contemporary issue to the public through the knowledge that can be imparted by art, with its entire aesthetic and cultural dimension.

Water’s reflection Unremitting oscillation of lights and shadows, the alternating of full and liquid brush strokes, the exact but unpredictable match of complimentary colours awake the perception of the everlasting flow of time. In this metaphysical state the subtle call of the light’s reflection on water emerges from our pre-birth floating memories and brings us towards a peaceful and calm state of mind, as in a primordial and primitive stage of life. Light and colour have both the power to transform mood, atmosphere and meaning; in Gloria’s work they become the place where our intimacy can embrace the infinity of the world. At first glance her ‘reflections’ paintings let us only imagine what’s above the banks. Water flowing on raw linen canvas gives life to an endless series of generous representations, which allows you to escape and travel with absolute freedom to all the places you care to imagine. The colours’ orchestration appears in all its richness: from the bluedominated reflections other colours as white, yellow or orange emerge interrupting the water‘s lull and break in the painting with urgency. Gloria structures the work through fluent musical lines: the lights are decomposed; they recreate a game that is truly a musical game. Her canvases recall Kandinsky for the spiritual strength of the spaces and light blue and yellow colours sounding as a musical composition. We get carried away in a path of sensations, perceptions, sights, emotions, unveiling hidden shapes and colours. So we can retrace the paths of the artist and lose ourselves in their fluidity or simply wander in dreams, following our imaginary places and characters.
