The artistic vision of Gina Lollobrigida..Movies ,acting ,painting and sculpture all over her soul...
The artistic vision of Gina Lollobrigida the artist is akin to that of such masters of contemporary sculpture as Manzù, Greco and Messina. Within the context of contemporary Italian art, these figures belong in the mainstream of tradition, and Gina Lollobrigida has shown unquestionable courage in systematically producing traditional works of a naturalistic type at the time when extreme forms of avant-garde art are all the rage. The plastic structure of her works is characterized by simplicity, grounded on a constant striving to shatter the static nature of the material and endow the forms in space with movement through composition. This is particularly evident in the works where the artist addresses the theme of dance, in the densely expressive contrast between the powerful and elegant outlines of the figures and the gossamer material of their garments fluttering in the breeze.
At the same time, however, her static compositions (portraits and reclining figures) always display a sort of subterranean interior dynamic of what we might call an emotive nature.
