She decided to start painting again, as she did during her first period at the television, seriously and not as a mere hobby, confronting the art critics, juries, judgments of buyers and professionals who do not forgive who decides to approach painting starting from one completely different field of art. To achieve her personal revolution, Fiorella has decided to play the game accepting with passion all the rules so fear not, thereafter, prejudices and constraints and, at the same time, not using the aid resulting from her popularity.

She moved then in France, in Nice, where as semi unknown, she have could work in peace at her new artistic career.

In February 2007 she opened in the alleys of the old town of Nice, (in rue droite, the street of the artists), her painting studio where creates and exhibites her work and where she's always busy in explaining her personal technique to the purchaser or to the tourist fascinated by her works.

In Italy, in May 2008 in the halls of medieval Castle of Tau in Altopascio (Lu), she presented her first solo exhibition Italian "Paths of Light" performed with paintings inspired by reading the stories of medieval travelers crossing, with many difficulties, the Europe on foot along the roads of the Francigena road, the historic route linking Canterbury to Rome and then until to Jerusalem.

The same exhibition was held in July and August 2008, in France in the medieval village of Aspremont in the hinterland of Nice, placed along the route towards of Rome.

FIORELLA PIEROBON - CRITICS


Fiorella Pierobon could be compared with an errant religious that has broken
with his previous status, with a modus vivendi that she did not feel congenial
to her anymore, in order to reach a higher level of personal research.
According to the painter, the abandon of a worn past, artistically turns into the
absence of every kind of representation; her works do not live of descriptive
necessity, but on the contrary, on her canvas sensations, impulses,
disillusionments, energetic movements and new states of mind become alive.
The art of Fiorella Pierobon is like a road of expulsion begun by the wandering
religious. the metamorphosis brings to a new perception of the intelligible,
neovisions translated in light and colour....
Her tecnique involves a necessity of action and repeated re-action: it is realized
an hand to hand with the colour where the artist transposes the pigments on
the canvas through a lot of pressures that leave indefinite traces, but
recognizable, from the matrix itself.
The artist keeps her contact with reality through a material taken from the
quotidianity and through a magic harmony that regulates the matching of the
shades that are never violent, but that show energy from the gesture with
which they have been put on the canvas.
The expressive journey of the artist from veneto, does not aim at the research
of a second existence but there is the will to show the essence of life itself.
Aware of her procedure, she does not seek the alienation of the real, but the
reaching of an higher existential passage to reveal through the art.
The essence of everything does not mean to create in a simple manner but to
read those mechanisms that animate and move things: her making art does not
correspond to an escape from life but to a mean to go deeper in her knowledge
and personal comprehension.

BIOGRAPHY of FIORELLA PIEROBON


Born in Somma Lombardo (Varese), Italy on March 18th, 1960

She participated in various collective exhibitions of painting in Italy in 1980, 1981, 1982 and 1985, but the daily work in television does not leave her the necessary time to continue painting and she stops.

Since then, Fiorella chose to change her life and return to her first love: painting.

She decided to start painting again, as she did during her first period at the television, seriously and not as a mere hobby, confronting the art critics, juries, judgments of buyers and professionals who do not forgive who decides to approach painting starting from one completely different field of art. To achieve her personal revolution, Fiorella has decided to play the game accepting with passion all the rules so fear not, thereafter, prejudices and constraints and, at the same time, not using the aid resulting from her popularity.

She moved then in France, in Nice, where as semi unknown, she have could work in peace at her new artistic career.

In February 2007 she opened in the alleys of the old town of Nice, (in rue droite, the street of the artists), her painting studio where creates and exhibites her work and where she's always busy in explaining her personal technique to the purchaser or to the tourist fascinated by her works.

Since then she has achieved her official quotation assigned to her by Drouot, the art catalog that gives quotations to international artists; furthermore Fiorella has successfully participated in many solo and group exhibitions in France, England (London), Japan (Osaka) and in Italy receiving always flattering critical comments and obtaining various awards and recognitions of which the most prestigious is the Silver Plaque of the President of the Italian Republic, which was awarded to her at the XXIV ° Price Agazzi in Mapello (Bg).

The same exhibition was held in July and August 2008, in France in the medieval village of Aspremont in the hinterland of Nice, placed along the route towards of Rome. From there came the idea to make "Paths of Light" becoming a traveling exhibition throughout the areas concerned by the Francigena road and the Roman streets.

In December 2008 one of her paintings was acquired by the Museum Dino Zoli in Forlì and since May 2009 one permanent installation of 9 of her works (paintings and sculptures expressly created for the Museum) is on exhibition at the new Lu.C.C.A., the Museum of contemporary art of Lucca.

In July 2009, Fiorella was invited in Florence by the Region of Tuscany to exhibit "Paths of light", at the headquarters of the Regional Council in the historic rooms of the Palazzo Panciatichi. At the end of the period espositive, one of her works has been acquired by the Pinacoteca of the Regional Council of Tuscany.

In 2010, the exhibition "Paths of light" has gained the sponsorship of the European Association of the Francigena road.

In 2011 Fiorella Pierobon was invited to exhibit in the Italian Pavilion at the 54th Venice Biennale.

PERCORSI DI LUCE (Path of light) - IDEA OF A TRAVELING EXHIBITION


As sometimes happens, everything comes from a series of casual events concatenated. I've always been a good reader, with particular reference to the issues of the Cathars and the Templars and, more generally, of human emancipation through the centuries. Studying the history of the Camino de Santiago and the "saddlebag and stick" has been the premise in order to discover the Via Francigena and its history. Five years ago, when I received the phone call by the Assessore to the Culture of Altopascio asking me to exhibit my paintings in the Castle of Tau, the castle of the Hospitallers of which I had read many years ago, it didn't seem real. I moved immediately from France and I went to Altopascio to visit the Castle. As soon as I entered, I thought I saw already painted my paintings: a source of tremendous inspiration. I decided to dedicate all the work that had yet to be realized, the perceptions that I had received (and get) while I got closer to the places of the Via Francigena, the stories of the pilgrims, trying to actualize the speech and imaginative vision. The exhibition was a resounding success with critics and audiences and, another casual event, immediately after the inauguration, the Mayor of Aspremont - Medieval village in the south of France, which is also connected with the streets Romee and with its history of the Templars - called me without knowing anything about the exhibition of Altopascio, and he asked me to expose there as soon as possible. From there, "Paths of Light" began its journey in Europe going from Florence (Palazzo del Consiglio Regionale della Toscana), Acqui Terme (Robellini Palace), Lucca (Lucca Center of Contemporary Art) and then to continue in 2010 with two events in contemporary Pontremoli and Berceto, milestones of the Via Francigena, and then again in Verona (Palazzo della Gran Guardia) and then for a month in Parma (Provincial Building). In 2011, the exhibition returned to France, in Nice, on display for two months at the Consulate General of Italy, in collaboration with the Italian Cultural Institute. My painting technique is abstract and, for my choice, I prefer to give indications of color, motion, matter and form, rather than make explicit and immediately apparent what I paint. I leave it to the viewer, the grasp and understand the feelings that I wanted to impress on the canvas at the moment of creation. Alternatively, create of their own. As a result, in "Percorsi di luce" (Paths of Light), are not realistic depictions of what was the journey of the pilgrim, his emotions. There are, however, apperceptions like result of the emotions that he gave me to read the stories of pilgrims walking along its paths. I am looking for anyway to guide the visitor to discover the world Francigena, sometimes naming the picture with the same phrases or names that already alone describe the journey of medieval pilgrims, such as the two works entitled "The journey - The land routes "and" The journey - The streets of heaven "where I imagine a multitude of people intent on achieving a spiritual destination but also a physical place, or" Di palma cinto" framework with strong green color component, which has is named after a passage from the Divine Comedy, where Dante speaks of palmers, those who were returning from the Holy Land, blessed with an olive branch. Next to some paintings with several quotations from Dante's Divine Comedy - the author's journey to excellence who wrote of pilgrims and knights who protected them - as per to actualize the whole, there are modern thoughts of authors from the twentieth century, always on the themes of travel , both physically and innerly. From Bob Dylan to Giorgio Gaber, from Cesare Pavese to Kerouac passing through Machado, Pessoa etc. My intention is also to let the visitor to reflect on the fact that several centuries ago, despite the poverty, wars and famines, were given food and hospitality to strangers, foreigners and often with different cultures from ours. If we look at how it is now hard to accept the "strangers", they would be almost to regret those times that are commonly called blinds.
