Silvia Idili’s trajectory says a lot: an expression through colors and forms as well as mystical and spiritual juxtapositions targeting our present troubled era.
Her work is defined by stylistic elements of a renewed classicism, with echoes of the great Italian tradition from Giotto to the Renaissance, from the Met to the alienating effects of the Magic Realism.
A two dimensional staged space comes to life marked by the use of strong suggestive shadows and a harmonious synthesis of composition, where mysterious, human and animal as well as plastic volumetric figures of geometric solids, hold the lead role recalling sacral and archetypal forms.
A poetic simplicity composed by simple and ordinary proportional figures, with a lyrical and magical flavor of depth.
An undoubtedly conceptual work equipped with a talented mathematician and a sound painting technique.
An architect on canvas; an architect of the vision highlighted by the abstract, the surreal and the dream-like.
A mental representation of images born more from a look inside rather than from the view of external nature.
The characters, objects and elements inhabiting the subjected environments, are seemingly "unrelated" to a representative logic, taking on the function of conjunction between the perceived objective reality and its reworking interior. A self-reflective depiction, especially in portraits, in which the young artist from Sardinia replaces the eyes with the solid geometry and where the is no sort of identification of the figure’s identity neither of the world observed in front of It.
A visionary “voice”, reworked by emotion, memory and filtered images from the eye of the mind. A creative trip stimulating all senses.
