Livia Pertile, who has been brought to national critical attention already in 1994 when, gaining a great success, was invited to the Biennale Giovani of Venice, collects everything in the patinated quality of her works. The artist uses vocabulary and communicative codes, on canvas, ceramics, clothes, shoes and bags, although it’s not to add her voice to the choral, but to build her ironic and critic speech, detached and attentive. Her intent is not to passively reproduce objects and places, flaunting an aseptic technical skill, nor to pursue the hyper-realistic poetry of “more true than true”, but to reason on perceptive mechanisms.
Today Livia Pertile’s Atelier is put beside a showroom in Villa Trissino Rossi where, not only you can perceive a sense of art and beauty, but her latest pictorial creations are exposed, paintings on leather bags in particular, where the object (man bag or woman bag) is not an object but a Painting that has to be admired. It’s possible to book an appointment to visit and eventually buy Livia’s works, she is going to welcome you and present you her works.
