Feofeo – Transeunte
Transeunte – 2019
mixed media on canvas – fire stamping – led
Feofeo was born in Alessandria in 1969. She completed her studies in Pharmacy. Alchemical attitude always inspired her works. Feofeo investigates constantly about colour and its frequencies on a visual, physical and symbolic level. The study of quantum physics, Goethe’s color theory and Steinerian spiritualism pushes her towards archetypal primordial representations, initially built only with painting, then with the use of signs and symbols. Cycle after cycle, the artist creates a highly personal anthroposophically structured grammar that invites the viewer to enter a higher vital energy and let emotions flow in a continuous exchange between identity and otherness, between individual and dual, between micro and macro-cosmos. Feofeo is always conscious of the meditative function of art in achieving well-being in a wide sense. Since 2011 there have been continuous personal exhibitions and reviews in museums, galleries and historic buildings in Italy and abroad in the cities of Barcelona, Berlin, Brussels, Bratislava, Buenos Aires, London, Los Angeles, Lugano, Montecarlo, Obernberg, Oslo, St.Petersburg, Stockholm and Tallinn.
