Miriam Tritto, italian surrealist artist
“Female italian surrealist artist Miriam Tritto artworks are often dedicated to nature and literature. The ink, graphite and charcoal realistic drawings created by Miriam wants to evoke the union of the human being with nature through surreal visions enriched with symbols.”
I love Classical Era, the imagery of Medieval Art and the gothic, decadent and symbolic investigations of the Nineteenth Century I admire the masters of the italian and nordic reinassence; at the same time I love the excesses and the contrasts of Neapolitan and Roman Baroque art. Nature is my reference, the example I look, study and admire; nature inspires me, along with literature, myth and music. Another reference for me is idealism, symbolism and utopia, which I decline with the forms of surrealism. I usually portray the human figure, especially females faces; sometime I mix them with theriomorphic and phytomorphic elements. The representation of dreamlike images, esoteric and mystical visions also fascinates me.
The traditional techniques and alchemy of materials are the vehicle I use to research my way and my poetics, in particular the chiaroscuro with graphite, charcoal and ink, that in the future I would like to enrich with oil and gold leaf techniques, taking up a medium that I have temporarily put aside to be able to devote myself to deepening the drawing.
