Glassy waves and Surf scenes in essence
Valentina likes the process of synthesis that drives to the essential and the telling power of a few lines or brush strokes.
Her work starts from observation during surf check ans sessions, then a thorough analysis of the main features and volumes of what she sees.
The scenes in her works arise in her imagination and she synthesizes them into their essence and represents them on paper or canvas. She chooses acrylique paint for perfect uncrowded waves and ink with self-made nib for surf images.
No pencil trace, paint or ink are spread directly on the blank support.
Her work aims to convey the purity and the elegance of the movement of waves and surfers
and let the spectator fill in the details to picture their own surf spot or magic moment in the water.
