CRITICAL REVIEW
Gabriella Niero – Art Critic
On the occasion of “Artisti per Venezia”, a collective art painting at Scoletta San Zaccaria in 2001 – Venice
This sensitive painter brings us towards spaces, rendered through culture and subtlety: internal suggestions are modulated through winding signs and both through vivid and deep shades, rich in tone variations.
All seems to be in harmony with the subtle variations of the soul, the tender modulations of feelings, or the erratic states of mind, which are reflected in the artist’s compositions. Paintings become successful reflections of personality, shaping her most fascinating emotions. Skill and culture melt in a pursuit that Rita Tripodi follows with honesty and determination.
