Silvia Codignola - Round about
Ivrea, 1962

Silvia Codignola uses painting and sculpture (sometimes combined) and borrows iconographic materials, linguistic and technical codes from tradition. She recreates the figure going beyond mimesis, in a purification of the contingent, producing an effect of suspended time and self-sufficiency in her dreamlike and visionary artwork. The artist works with unconscious and immediate images within an idea of beauty that, as Massimo DonĂ  observed, takes us back to that "original sacred aura in which all creatures are clad."
