89 x 55 cm.
..... PER TUTTI I NOSTRI AMICI ITALIANI !!!
Questo ultimo quadro , che è anche il più recente , ci da l'occasione di rinnovare l'invito ad esprimere i Vostri sentimenti , le Vostre curiosità e anche le Vostre critiche , in forma di commenti .
Marialuisa potrebbe benissimo suggerirVi una interpretazione , una " chiave di lettura " , per questo quadro e per la sua pittura in generale , ma , così facendo , annullerebbe tutta la Vostra partecipazione " attiva " e svilirebbe il Vostro ruolo di " Spettatori " : importantissimo , in quanto qualsiasi opera deve provocare una reazione quanto più possibile personale e soggettiva !!
Questo mezzo " interattivo " ci permette , oggigiorno , di portare il processo un poco più avanti e con una maggiore diffusione che in passato ...
PER FAVORE .... APPROFITTIAMONE !!!

ONE MORE PAINTING .... ONE MORE POST !!!!!
The purpose of this exercise is quite clear , in Marialuisa's mind : she paints what she feels , what she is attracted to .... and , then , she expects some " feed-back " from the public .
That's why she is publishing here this photo of her most recent work , where , obviously , horses seem to be the protagonists , in an apparently surreal environment .
If You asked her , she would , probably , explain all the details of this carefully intricate " vision " ; she could even give You the " key " to " open " it and feel what she felt ....
.... but , by doing so , we would defeat the original purpose of this Blog : to communicate and exchange experiences , which Marialuisa's works and the eyes ( .. and the words !! ) of the spectators should create together !!
Ideally , it would be up to the Visitors of this Blog , to comment and explain what Marialuisa , humbly , is only suggesting and presenting ..
That why comments are not only welcome but should be an integral part of this sharing experience ...

!!!!!! FAMILY PORTRAITS and WHAT'S BEHIND 'EM !!!!!!
These two paintings , recently completed , which look so different from one another ... , actually have much in common !!
Marialuisa has taken , this time , the function and the meaning of a portrait much farther than in the past : The two sisters who have inspired the two canvasses , share , of course , common anatomical features , but , unmistakably , as any other individual on this planet , represent a very personal and intimate " world " , that - Marialuisa believes - it's a true Artist's duty to discover and interpret !!
So , without imposing her views , Marialuisa has tried to link to the two sisters' inner " landscapes " and , in these two paintings , she has focused on the identity of the subject , more than the exterior looks , that everybody can clearly see in a photograph or a meeting in person !!
Perhaps , Sofia and Niki , at this stage , might find some difficulties to recognize themselves or would argue that the image they'd like to project around , is not what they see now depicted by Marialuisa ... It is quite normal - the artist believes - that a " metaphysical " portrait won't match even our own expectations and might even confuse some " spectators "; but , she stresses , it is a powerful tool to abandon superficiality , start a new quest and discover what's hidden in front of our eyes !!
If the persons were what they look like ... probably , the mission of the Artist would be so limited to become just an other job !!
