“For me, painting is a profound and captivating experience that gives me a tremendous sense of fulfilment. It feeds the passion that keeps me going day after day, and which over time has led me to the successes I have enjoyed.I want you to understand something about my art. When I feel the need to paint, it’s because I have a feeling inside me that needs to be released. While I work, that feeling comes to life on the canvass in shapes and colours… the result not of thought, but of instinct.”
Loredana Messina, was born in Palermo, Sicily. She was a pupil at the Maria Adelaide public school progressing to study Law at the University of Palermo. She currently lives in London from where she teaches Italian. Her passion for art has become her great interest in life. She is a self taught artist, whose materials consist of oil on canvas and inspiration from the land of her birth. While over the years Loredana has concentrated on commission work, lately she has resolved to make herself more visible in the art world. In 2013 Loredana was invited to participate, and then became a commission selected finalist, in the International Art Competition organized by the Taiwan International Contemporary Arts Association.
Landscapes, seascapes and street scenes are Loredana’s favoured subjects which she portrays with great spontaneity to immediately evoke magical vibrations and fresh atmospheres. Her works are formally casual, with delicate colours that play and live freely in their own rhythm, providing spacious musical horizons, full of charm and intimate emotions. The artist has a clean and modular style, with a fluid and secure gestured capacity to convey an extraordinary, spontaneous and instinctive serenity. Recently, her creativity has lead her into the world of abstractionism where her strong and contrasting colour bands give free reign to her imagination.
Further international presence has been bestowed upon the artist in exhibitions and on contemporary art sites in North America, Germany and Australia that have both curated and featured a number of her works giving her pride of place on the front page.
