Pinsone, Stefania

Stefania is a digital-realistic-painter and portraitist, skilled in acrylic painting. She graduated as a painter from the Academy of Fine Arts in Rome, after which she completed the degree of history of art at the University of Rome, with a publication based on her master’s thesis. Along with the studies and the artistic activities, she worked for 10 years as a high school teacher in Rome. She has made three personal exhibitions, participated in several collective exhibitions and was represented on a number of art fairs.

 

She was strongly influenced by the art of Gerhard Richter in her artistic development, to the point of considering the challenge of being the painter of the century of digital images just as Richter was the painter of the century of photographic images. Richter painted the photographic image with all its flaws such as unclear focus and shaken or moved pictures, she paints the digital image with all its flaws such as jpeg effects, glitch, chromatic aberration etc. She has an ironic, sometimes even caustic view of the images that almost overwhelm us in the present society of mass communication. She paints photo-realistically, adding a bit of freehand “jpeg-digital noise” because this noise accentuates the feeling of disturbance, as does the use of dissonant colours. She aims to show the other side of the social network society by mixing the languages, creating a new multimedia language with real digital images taken from her personal network archive, but painted using the traditional analog technique of acrylic on canvas with very bright and intense colours.
