Antonietta Corti di Curio


Painting is a language, poetry, music. Rather than talking about it, we should try to experience it, learn it, let ourselves be immersed in it.

Painting is also technique, discipline and work, but beyond this, its essence is freedom, dreams and inner space.

I paint and do other creative activities to feel that I am alive, to discover what is possible and to explore my own boundaries. For many years, I have travelled the world, discovering other cultures and meeting people. Reminiscences and references absorbed along the way sometimes emerge in my work.

Each day I withdraw into my other world, my studio to “work” and sense the immense pleasure (when I am not fighting frustration) of being creative.

I hope that some onlookers experience the same pleasure in discovering my work.
