Antonella’s work leaves always a place for the comic and singular thing who is the fact of existing, for her, asking & giving to the viewer a chance to reflection & learning about themselves & their own ways of surviving on our world. An style marked by careful compositions where spaces, proportions, the moving & statics parts, sizes & texture, color & techniques applied, play an important role in the image & objects read.

If I find the way to touch your mind, if I get the way to make you think about, at least for half second, or less than that… then all the time I spend on my early intents will start to make sense.
On arts, photography, sculpture, text, philosophy and even sports.
It’s not only about the subject, it’s not only about me or you.
It’s all about everything and the understanding off this everything, every single second, every single place, every single person, every single word, action and though.
It’s all about the big picture, in single pieces. ” it’s like being water, it’s being a letter”.
In Photography, it can be about a single pixel.
In sculpture, a wanderfull shape.
In writing, a powerful meaning.
In philosophy, a simple idea.
In sports, a strong feeling.
And in life, a single moment.
If I can get you to understand that, it is enough, because then I had gave something back to someone.
